Geddy Lee ESPN side project: glam/prog rock band Iron Diamond

The ESPN commercial featuring Geddy Lee that I first mentioned a couple weeks back has been airing regularly and I pointed you to the YouTube link over the weekend. With all the hullabaloo of the last couple days I didn't get a chance to post many details about the commercial - which is for fantasy baseball on ESPN. It features the ESPN crew including John Kruk and Peter Gammons along with several special guests including Geddy Lee performing as the glam/progressive rock band Iron Diamond. The song played is called Guide Me Master. The band even has a MySpace page which has a lot of great photos and the commercial posted. For those of you who don't have access to MySpace I've posted a few of the pics. The band members are as follows:

John Kruk: lead vocals, ESPN Baseball Tonight Cohost
Peter Gammons: vocals, guitar, ESPN Baseball Tonight Cohost, writer
Bronson Arroyo: vocals, guitar, 2006 MLB All-Star Pitcher
