Geddy Lee Donates Baseball Collection To Negro Leagues Museum

"Close to 200 baseballs, all autographed by former Negro Leagues baseball players or backers, have been donated to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum by a somewhat surprising fan ... Rush singer/bassist Geddy Lee. It’s among the largest single donations the museum has had, according to director of marketing Bob Kendrick. It also represents some history the museum didn’t previously have. 'Some of these guys have been dead for some time, and we could not get these (signatures) before no matter what their significance was in the Negro Leagues,' he said...Lee, whose band performs Saturday at Starlight, dropped by the museum last year unannounced, Kendrick said. 'I wasn’t here, but another employee walked him through the museum, and apparently he fell in love with the place,' Kendrick said. 'He already had a huge respect for the Negro Leagues, as the collection shows, and this brought it home to him.'" - Kansas City Star, June 4, 2008.

Sabian's Chris Stankee Travels With Neil Peart On The RUSH Tour

"Who would think that traveling the world by tour bus with a legendary rock band could be boring? That would depend on how you travel. If you're Neil Peart, who has been on the road since 1974, and you have the option of riding your motorcycle from show to show or be cooped up on a bus there's only one thing to do. Take the scenic route, stop and smell the roses, or literally, the lilacs and turn the trip into an adventure. Now that sounds like a plan! Earlier this year Neil asked me if I would ride with him in Iowa where I grew up..." - Chris Stankee, Sabian.com, June 9, 2008
