UPDATE - 12/31@10:23AM: Here's the playlist (thanks RushFanForever).

Geddy Lee was a guest on this morning's edition of NPR Music's World Cafe where he talks all things bass, including his Big Beautiful Book of Bass (thanks Robert H):

Today we're not worthy: Joining us, it's the legendary Rush frontman and bassist, Geddy Lee. While Rush has retired from touring, Geddy's kept busy, cataloging, photographing and writing about his collection of bass guitars for the almost-encyclopedic Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass. And it's definitely big and beautiful, featuring hundreds of bass guitars, a whole lot of history and in-depth interviews with guys like Adam Clayton of U2 and Robert Trujillo of Metallica.

In this session, step into the limelight as we talk all things bass and geek out with Geddy. Plus, hear songs featuring some of his favorite bass players, including John Entwistle, in the audio player.

You can listen to the interview below or on the NPR website here. Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass was released this past Christmas and can be ordered online at this location.
