Every once in a while during this BBBoB book signing tour we stop moving and indulge in a conversation about all things bassy including some talk about my time in Rush...We have had quite a variety of "guest hosts" for these, ranging from musicologists to Rock radio folks and even one well known raconteur and fellow Rush Idiot Alex Lifeson ..So, taking yet another approach for this Q and A in Nashville I find myself lucky enough to have as hosts, not 1 but 2 of Rush's past Record Producers...Nick Rasculinecz and Peter Collins.. both Nashville residents in fact! Now these chaps couldn't be more different...Nick is a Tennessee born "Badass" and Peter is a transplanted "London Gentleman"...and this combo should make for some lively and interesting musical chit chat..! #BBBOB #nashville #thebasementeast #nickraskulinecz #petercollins #nickwasinfoosrushrockhalljam #yesthatistswift #youwanttocometothisbbbobQandAsigning #reallyyoudo
