Last month we let you know that Neil Peart would be the cover-story feature in the December 2011 issue of Modern Drummer Magazine. The issue hit the newsstands earlier this week and now the entire article with photos can be viewed online.
In the interview/article, Neil touches upon several topics including how he prepares for a tour - and the riggers behind touring itself, his approach to composing drum segments of new songs and also the inspiration behind his latest drumming instructional video Taking Center Stage: A Lifetime of Live Performance.Neil Peart might well have been born with an innate inclination toward understanding and creating rhythm, but he also knows a thing or two about hard work. He's certainly been blessed with the brain of a seeker, which has led him to travel the world, geographically and rhythmically, and to remain ever open to fresh inspirations. But, again, his long and staggeringly productive career with his Rush bandmates, bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson, could not be had without keeping the ol' shoulder to the wheel.Check out the entire article via this LINK.
