Rush’s Geddy Lee Names His Rock God, Says He Was Ferocious


The Canadian rock band Rush bassist/singer Geddy Lee has revealed his rock god with a recent interview he attended with Rolling Stones and made weird comments about it.

While he was discussing his musical influences, Geddy Lee said Entwistle is one of the greatest rock bassists of all time. He also described him as ferocious.

“He was one of the first gods to me. Gods of rock. Ever since I first heard ‘My Generation,’ it’s like, ‘Who is that?’ That was a name you needed to know. And I still rank him as the greatest rock bassist of all time, in one sense.

“First of all, he was ferocious, and he had a sound that dared to encroach upon the domain of the guitar player. So he had a very loud, very aggressive tone.

“And to hear that on pop radio – I mean, ‘My Generation’ didn’t get as much play over here as it did in the UK, but it was a pop hit with a bass solo in it, no less.

“So I was drawn to, first of all, his tone, secondly, his audacity and thirdly, his dexterity. I mean, he had incredible dexterity, and just moved across the strings in such a fluid manner with such ease, and yet, sounded so tremendously ferocious at the same time.

“We all tried to play ‘My Generation’ and failed miserably, but you do your crappy version of it…

“I would say were harder to do than, say, a cover of ‘Road Runner,’ by Junior Walker and the Allstars, where you can transform that into sort of a rock bass without too much trouble. But yeah, The Who were much tougher.”

Geddy Lee rocks stage with Rush since 1968.
