Rush's Geddy Lee To Host New Docuseries Asking 'Are Bass Players Human Too?'

Rush‘s Geddy Lee is set to host an upcoming four-part Paramount+ docuseries titled “Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human Too?” scheduled to premiere on December 5th.

The docuseries will see Lee engaging in random activities with bassists Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Les Claypool (Primus), and Melissa Auf der Maur (ex-Smashing Pumpkins, ex-Hole).

A trailer released by the makers of the series shows Lee meeting the bassists at their respective homes. He is seen canning tomatoes and fruits with Novoselic, surfing with Trujillo, going fishing and flying in an airplane with Claypool, and jamming on the bass with Auf der Mour.

“I’m trying to show the world that a bass player can do many things,” Lee says in the trailer. “Join me as I travel to the homes of four bass legends and dive deep into their lives, and their inspirations, plus some fun making music … as I try to answer one really important question: Are bass players human, too?”

“The idea for this show was born out of interviews I did for my first book, The Big, Beautiful Book of Bass. I was struck that these accomplished musicians also lived incredibly interesting, multifaceted lives offstage,” Lee says in a press release.
