Neil Peart - Anatomy of a Drum Solo
Click image to enlarge

Anatomy of a Drum Solo
Format: DVD (colour, special edition, NTSC)
Publisher: Hudson Music / Rounder Records
Released: December, 2005
Run Time: 200 min

Hudson Music presents newly-recorded, in-studio footage of Neil discussing in detail his approach to soloing. Using a solo recorded in September, 2004 in Frankfurt, Germany as a framework, Neil talks about each segment of this nine-minute tour de force that is a feature of each Rush performance. He describes the inspiration and the conceptual thinking behind each part of the solo and discusses, and often demonstrates, the technique necessary for playing that segment.

Also included are two “explorations” - completely improvised workouts at the drums, each over thirty-minutes long; a never-before-released solo recorded in Hamburg, Germany in September, 2004 ("Ich Bin Ein Hamburger"); “O Baterista”, Neil's Grammy® Award-nominated solo (previously released on the Rush in Rio DVD); two full Rush performances from Frankfurt ’04, all shot from the perspective of the drum cameras; interviews with Lorne Wheaton, Neil’s drum tech, and Paul Northfield, Rush co-producer and engineer; a full-color booklet, a photo gallery and more.
