Former Rheostatics drummer Dave Clark's current band The Woodshed Orchestra have just released their new self-titled album which includes a track called Geddy Lee. The 2-and-a-half minute song includes the following lyrics:

Geddy Lee is a Canadian National Treasure
playing the bass in the greatest rock band ever
All around the world people flock to see our Geddy Lee play.
"Limelight" and "Twenty One Twelve"
and "Tom Sawyer".
How many kids living in the great white North
started up a band because Rush seemed the sort of guys
who would encourage you to start up a band!
How many kids!

The Woodshed Orchestra consists of an eclectic mix of musical styles and musicians whose sound is a tad difficult to describe. From their bio page:

The Woodshed Orchestra is an ecstatic soul-filled communal multi-headed celebration emancipation experience. The Woodshed will take you higher and make you feel the love you need to succeed. Yes it will. The Woodshed will light up your tree, push all the right buttons, stroke your ego till you come to your senses and start to sing and dance with visions of sugar plum love making times dancing in your mind that seem so real to the taste, touch and feel that you’ll shout in happiness and cry tears of joy for being alive.

You can purchase the album at this link and watch the video below or at this link.

The track is also available in French, German and Italian. Many thanks to Dave Clark himself for the heads up.
