UPDATE - 7/17@9:29AM: Geddy was interviewed for the Illinois Entertainer over the weekend as a preview to today's book signing event in Chicago. The interview is mostly about the book, with the same old questions/answers we've seen in dozens of other interviews, but here's what he said about a possible solo album (thanks Dean S):

"... I do have some ideas, but I haven't put any action into them. I haven't discussed anything with Alex in quite some time. We talk all the time, but we haven't talked about work. You know, I was in a very intense job for over 40 years, and you don't just walk out of that into something else. This book has been a marvelous escape and education, and in a sense, edified me in ways I never thought it would. Eventually, I'm sure I will start making some noise downstairs.. .. I store riffs for a rainy day. Eventually, the rainy day will come, I think. We'll see if they're any damn good."

Geddy Lee kicked off his Big Beautiful Book of Bass US signing tour last night at The Basement East in Nashville, including a Q&A interview conducted by former Rush producers Peter Collins and Nick Raskulinecz, both Nashville residents. The interview is now available for viewing online below or at this location (thanks RushFanForever). Geddy continues his tour later this afternoon at Left Bank Books in St. Louis, and will then head to Detroit, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia over the upcoming week before wrapping things up in Atlanta this coming Saturday. Fans attending the signing events over the past several months 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 has been hitting the interview circuit to promote the tour, and was a guest on the Preston and Steve Show on Philadelphia's WMMR last Thursday which you can listen to online at this location, and there's also this short interview with The Tennessean previewing yesterday's event.
