Band Name Origins:

  • Gary Lee Weinrib. His parents were rescued from Nazi death camps in Poland. After the war they went to Canada. Gary was born and one of his relatives spoke with a thick Yiddish accent. Her call of "Gary Lee" came out as sounding like "Geddy Lee". Gary later took that as his stage name. Submitted by: I Saw Rush 3 Times So Far
  • The vocalist/bassist of Rush was originally named Gary. I think it was his grandma who was from somewhere in Europe. I don't which country she was from but she had some accent where the r's are tapped or rolled with the tongue. Thus, the r in Gary was "tapped" whenever she said his name. For instance, "Gary! Dinner's ready!". Hence "GEDDY! Dinner's ready!" Submitted by: Kyle
