Geddy Lee kicked off his Big Beautiful Book of Bass European signing tour this past Saturday at Waterstones Piccadilly in London, UK. He then moved on to Manchester, UK for a signing and Q&A at the Dancehouse Theatre, where he was interviewed for about an hour by Philip Wilding as seen below or in this YouTube video (thanks RushFanForever). Geddy heads to Glasgow for a signing event today before moving on to mainland Europe for a signing in Amsterdam tomorrow, and finishing things off with an event in Hamburg this coming Saturday. Fans attending the events have been canvasing social media with photos, which I've been accumulating on the RIAB Twitter feed, so keep an eye out there and share your own photos as well - I'll retweet as I come across them. Geddy spoke with the UK's Classic Rock magazine last week to preview the event, and you can check out that interview here. When asked about whether he'd consider writing a book about wine, baseball or other subjects he's interested in, he had this to say:

I don't think so. I think this works because of I've spent my life with one of these instruments in my hands. So I come to it with a serious level of experience and also a track record. There are a lot of people writing books about wine and a lot of people that are writing about baseball, people that have more of a pedigree than I do in those areas. I'm more of a fanboy of the other things I collect. ... I have a film I've been trying to get made for quite a while. It's a film about baseball set in Italy. It's an independent film we've been working on for a number of years, and we've had a few problems getting it off the ground. But I'm not giving up on that!

Today's Glasgow event is sold out, but you can get details on the Amsterdam and Hamburg events and purchase tickets for those at rush.com/geddylee.
