Drummer Neil Peart's Body is a Finely Tuned Instrument
The Los Angeles Times has just posted an interesting article/interview with Neil Peart where the discussion centers around his fitness regiment and how he's able to keep up the stamina required to tour and perform with Rush:If you're a good drummer, it's a physically demanding job. To be the greatest, you must follow a training regimen that goes beyond the lighted stage.A very interesting read for Rush and fitness fans alike. Check out the entire article at this LINK.
A recent reader's poll in Rolling Stone magazine proclaimed my fellow Canadian Neil Peart of Rush to be the greatest living drummer, and I, many drum magazines and TV's "Family Guy" agree. Accordingly, I endeavored to snag an interview with a man who rarely gives interviews. I wanted to discover how a rocker — a career not known for promoting health or longevity — can keep his body a skin-smashing machine after 37 years in the same rock trio giving calorie-combusting concert performances that would blow the lumbar discs and ventricles of lesser men.
Getting to meet Peart might be cool too.
