RUSH Drummer NEIL PEART: 'Anatomy Of A Drum Solo' DVD Release Date Moved Forward

According to a posting on the RUSH fan site Power Windows, the release date of "Anatomy of a Drum Solo", Neil Peart's new drumming DVD, has been moved up two weeks: according to Hudson Music, the DVD is now set for release December 7.

"Anatomy of a Drum Solo" 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 2004, 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.

RUSH fanatatics may be especially excited to hear that the special features will include home footage of J.R. FLOOD, circa 1970, as well as audio-only bonus marimba tracks, "Momo's Dance Party" and "Pieces of Eight".
