Jeff Woods Interview with Neil Peart Now Online
Last month Neil Peart taped an audio interview with Jeff Woods prior to the Hamilton, Ontario show. The interview was taped as part of the syndicated radio show The Legends of Classic Rock where the discussion centered around Neil's fifth full-length book Far and Away: A Prize Every Time.They’re Canada’s #1 musical export to the world, and so not surprisingly, guitarist Alex Lifeson, bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee and drummer/lyricist Neil Peart, have been so busy touring over the past year, that they haven’t had a chance to finish what they started: recording their 20th studio album; “Clockwork Angels”.You can listen to the entire 25-minute interview via this LINK.
While recording is scheduled to resume fall 2011, in the meantime, RUSH’s stock has never been so valuable, with thanks in part, to the acclaimed film, that tells the story of ‘RUSH Beyond the Lighted Stage’.
It seems everyone has seen it, everyone that is, except their drummer. How could THAT BE?
You will find out how, and much more, from this revealing conversation with Neil Peart, who set aside a half hour, back stage, to talk to me about all things RUSH, including the evolution of his drumming, the nature of his lyrics, his latest book Far And Away – A Prize Every Time, performing live, and just why RUSH have keep doing what they do.
And as Neil Peart is about to tell you, he only tours one way...
Thanks to reader RushFanForever for passing along the news.

Excellent interview. I don´t know how Neil can speak those runs non-stop, he barely takes a breath. lolReplyDelete
Seriously, I may not agree with everything he says or believes, but he´s a very special person, with such a talent that inspires people in many different ways; that´s why I admire him :)
LOL -- you're not kidding, 'C' -- Neil barely takes a breath throughout that entire 25 minute interview!ReplyDelete
Still - - great stuff and man, is he ever 'sounding' enthusiastic...!
The motion is carried. I've never heard Neil so talkative. It's about the polar opposite of his appearance on Politically Incorrect in the 90's.ReplyDelete
Most of all, it's great to hear that kind of energy. It offsets the inevitable rumblings about how much longer they will tour/record. FWIW, 20 studio records is a nice, round number. After that milestone, maybe they evolve into another model for releasing music.
