Rush's Geddy Lee To Appear On How I Met Your Mother

Rush bassist Geddy Lee has been confirmed for an appearance on How I Met You Mother. The rock legend will cameo in a special episode marking the return of teen pop sensation Robin Sparkles' storyline. The Lee episode airs February 4.

The news comes via an official statement from CBS, which said the episode will serve as a tribute of sorts to Canada.

Lee will join a host of other Canadian celebs, including Alan Thicke, James Van Der Beek, Paul Shaffer, Jason Priestley, Alex Trebek, K. D. Lang, former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page and former NHL star Luc Robitaille.

Two of the guests, Thicke and Van Der Beek, have previously appeared on the show.

How I Met Your Mother recently kicked off their current season, and rumors are swirling that it may return for a ninth season.
