The Best of Times… with Geddy Lee
Welcome to The Best Of Times... podcast brought to you by Lush and The Quietus.
The Best Of Times... podcast is presented by John Doran. In this series he talks to people about some of the best and worst times they have been through and hopefully discovers how these experiences have made them who they are today.
So far he has interviewed Sleaford Mods, The Specials, Kristin Hersh, Róisín Murphy, Mavis Staples, Kate Tempest and Cate Le Bon. Today’s guest is Geddy Lee.
Geddy is a lifelong resident of Toronto, Canada. He dropped out of high school at the age of 16 to join Rush in 1968. They would eventually go on to become one of the most successful progressive rock bands in the world. They disbanded after 50 years in 2018. Among his many hobbies, Geddy is now an author, having just published the Big Beautiful Book Of Bass.
This podcast was produced and engineered by Andrew Paine and co-produced by Heather Weil. The theme music is by Oh The Gilt. If you enjoyed it please subscribe, give us a star rating, tweet about us and tell your friends and family. Thanks for listening. We’ll be back soon with more Best Of Times.
I’m really enjoying listening to this podcast. The John Doran interviews are especially good. A counter culture injection to sooth a workers commute 🤡. Melty.
Excellent music themed podcast
This is a fanastic podcast. Really engaging, insightful and adeptly navigated chat. Looking forward to the next one.
It’s definitely good and better than any other thing
