Did Rush's Geddy Lee pose for a photo used to sell tribute shirts for his deceased bandmate Neil Peart? No, that's not true: A social media post advertising the sale of tribute shirts for Peart, who died on January 7, 2020, featured a digitally altered photo that used Lee's head and someone else's hands holding the shirt. The same marketer has faked photos for ads purportedly showing LeBron James holding up a Kobe Bryant tribute shirt.

This is what social media users saw:
Peart was the drummer and primary lyricist for the Canadian rock band. He died in Santa Monica, California, on January 7, 2020, at the age of 67. Lee played bass and keyboards and sang.
The faked image is a poor attempt to fool fans into thinking that Lee was behind the sale of the shirts.
