    Neil Peart, personal history, drums and some philosophy.

    A Work in Progress is Neil Peart's 2-DVD box-set, documenting the "work in progress" of recording Rush's Test for Echo album, as well as an extensive discussion of the fundamental reinvention of Peart's percussion technique by the tutelage of the expert Freddie Gruber. Neil's special approach to drums is featured in various individual songs from Test for Echo. Other topics include a discussion of Neil's DW drumset, his approach to odd times, playing with a vocalist, and a "guided tour" of Neil's warmup routine.

    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.
    -Hugh Ledlie, 1774.

    I had at least 30 opportunities to see him, but being young I was always busy busy busy. I always said I'll catch him next time, until there were no more to catch.

    Ginger Baker and Neal Peart in one year... two of the greatest. I dread the day Bruford goes... and Cobham... and Chambers. Of course, Jim Gordon is long gone, another great.

    Neil Peart... This is almost as bad as when Lou Reed died.

    Every Rush fan wishes they could be at this dinner. So many bands are full of drama. No drama in Rush.

    PS: Having never seen Rush perform live is one of my musical regrets... and Miles Davis.

    Eddie, one of the greatest guitar players of all time! Equal in talent and influence to Neil Peart. Just a guess, but I feel it is imminent.

    Saw them twice. Coincidentally, was hanging out with two of the guys I went to that first show with so many years ago, the day before Peart’s death was announced, and the only thing we could remember was that we were far back on the upper level.

    Also saw them on the R30 tour. Spectacular show. Best drum solo of all time. That show is available on DVD.
