Geddy was raised in a Jewish environment and even had Bar Mitzvah. He was interested in music from an early age, and this may be because his father was also a skilled musician. His father died when Geddy was still young and he was raised by his mother in his teenage years. As he wanted to help his mother get through her loss, Geddy started to focus more and more on his music starting as a teenager. It was not long before he landed a part with the heavy metal band “Rush”. Geddy was more into bass and singing in the band, and as the band started flourishing locally, mostly for their rock music, Geddy and his band members started finding fame as well as money.

“Rush” became a popular rock band in Canada from the 70s with its successful albums like “2112”, “Permanent Waves”, “Moving Pictures” and many more. As the band grew in popularity, Geddy started a solo singing career on the side. He became prominent as a solo singer and an excellent guitarist with his album “Favourite Headache” released in 2000. Geddy has managed to build-up a fan-base of millions around the world, and most of them are influenced by his magical skills in bass as well as his voice.

A father of a son and a daughter, Geddy has been married to Nancy Young for thirty-nine years and their marriage is apparently still going as strongly as ever.

11 Starting in the mid-1990s, would choose to use a concert venue's "house" speakers rather then amplifier stacks, which created a vast empty space behind him. He would soon use that space to put kitchen appliances, clothes dryers, etc. for humorous purposes.

According to the Ottawa Sun, "The award was given as much for their community service as for their contribution to the arts. They have raised over $1 million for food banks and the United Way."

22 Is the bassist/keyboardist/vocalist of the Canadian rock trio, Rush.

#Quote
1 [on re-imagining an earlier composition] Once you start playing it, it's amazing how you can put yourself back into that mindset of how you felt when you wrote the song. You can reignite a point-of- view, and a good feeling about playing it, even though initially your instincts said: 'Oh, I can't play that song anymore - that's too dated'. But your can. You can go home again.

#Trademark
1 Use of kitchen appliances and other industrial items as "balance" to Alex Lifeson's stack of amps on stage in concerts.
2 Fender Signature model Jazz Bass
3 Long hair
4 Distinctive nose
5 His unusually high pitched vocals
6 His round sunglasses
