Happy Birthday, Geddy Lee!

Rush’s Geddy Lee celebrates his birthday today!

Right now, Rush is currently winding down their R40 tour with a show tomorrow night (July 30th) in Irvine Meadows, Calif. and the final show on August 1st in Los Angeles.  While there are plenty of ways to celebrate the legendary bass player, we think you should watch his episode from the VH1 Classic show “Rock Icons.”

The clip below offers a rare look at Lee and his life both on and off the stage through exclusive interviews with not just himself but with Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

Of course, if you prefer to watch “I Love You Man” on loop to honor Lee, that’s plenty fine, too.  Who are we to judge?
