About the Author

Geddy Lee is the vocalist, bassist, and keyboard player for the Hall of Fame rock group Rush, with drummer Neil Peart and guitarist Alex Lifeson. The most successful Canadian music group in history, Rush is only third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum albums sold by a rock band, and has performed before millions of fans around the world. Ranked by Rolling Stone as among the top bassists of all-time, Rush's energetic frontman has long been acclaimed for his wizard-like musical talent and mesmerizing performances. Geddy lives in Toronto, Canada.

Reviews

"As someone who has spent his life telling made-up stories that are obliged to sound somewhat plausible, I am deeply envious of Geddy Lee. And it's not only the improbable, absurd, wondrous and at times heartbreaking true story that life has gifted him that I envy, but also the warmth, care, artfulness, hard-earned wisdom and--always--the gently skewed humor with which he tells it. He's one of my musical heroes, for reasons that are there on record, but with this book everyone can see why for so long he has also been one of my heroes as a man." -- Michael Chabon

"An effin' good read." -- Associated Press

"There was never a band like Rush. Geddy Lee doesn't want to forget it. It took a series of losses for the high-voiced rock star to confront his personal history. It all came out in his new memoir." -- The Washington Post

"A page-turner . . . gives readers a fly-on-the-wall, tick-tock perspective . . . and also provides a backstage pass into Lee's inner monologue as he balanced rising fame and enduring fears." -- Toronto Star

"My Effin' Life is joyously thoughtful and engaging." -- The Boston Globe

"The main takeaway from Geddy Lee's new memoir, My Effin' Life, is that anything can happen as long as you live your life with an honest conviction." -- Vulture

"The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer--who played bass, keyboards, and sang on the progressive rock band's biggest hits--holds nothing back in his highly-anticipated memoir."
-- Entertainment Weekly
