Family: Geddy Lee
The Rush man on life and love outside the band.
How did your parents react when you told them you wanted to be a musician?
It was hard for my mother to accept. She was from the old country, Poland, and a survivor [of Nazi concentration camps during WWII]. When they came to Canada my parents’ dream was to escape the horrors of the past, to see their children grow up and be professional people – a doctor, a lawyer, something with stability, not a musician.
