Geddy Lee, bass and synth musician of the Canadian progressive rock band Rush takes his 70th trip around the sun today. He joined the band in 1968 and they toured relentlessly while releasing their self titled debut in 1974. After a slew of successful albums through the late 1970s all the way up to drummer Neil Perts death in 2020, they became one of the biggest stadium rock bands in the world. Geddy and guitarist Alex Lifeson haven’t really done much since the death of the beloved drummer but are rumored to possibly do a 50th anniversary reunion of sorts next year.

In honor of Geddy’s birthday we put together this little video set-list including some our favs through the decades.
