SiriusXM Taps Rush’s Geddy Lee For Guest DJ Spot
Rush bassist Geddy Lee will serve as guest DJ on SiriusXM’s Classic Rewind this Thursday, January 10. Lee’s stint can be heard on Channel 25 starting at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday afternoon.
Geddy’s guest spot comes as part of a slot normally occupied by DJ Kristine Stone. As Rush Is A Band points out, Stone is a well-known Rush fan whose promo includes “Limelight” playing in the background and the tagline “… and then’s there’s Rush … my happy place.” Kristine typically holds down the 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. time slot on Classic Rewind, a channel devoted to classic rock from the ’70s and ’80s.
The bassist recently released the tome Big Beautiful Book Of Bass and has sat for a number of interviews to promote the book in past weeks. Geddy revealed Rush’s Neil Peart has not only retired from the band but from drumming as part of a recent chat with SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk.
