Aside from giving bass guitar lessons to Primus's Les Claypool and collaborating on a secret project with Barenaked Ladies' Ed Robertson, Rush bassist Geddy Lee, it turns out, has been working on a memoir lately.

Set for release next autumn via HarperCollins, the project began as a way for Lee to channel the grief he felt after the death of his Rush bandmate, Neil Peart, from brain cancer last January.
