[The Drummer: 100 Years of Rhythmic Power and Invention]

There's a new book out from Modern Drummer Publications called The Drummer: 100 Years of Rhythmic Power and Invention that features Neil Peart among many other drumming greats. From the press release:

"The Drummer: 100 Years of Rhythmic Power and Invention" is the first book to tell the complete tale of the modern drumset master. The book dissects a century of drumming, covering every major musical genre from early jazz to new metal. Twenty of the world's "drum gods" -- Buddy Rich, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Elvin Jones, Neil Peart, and others -- are featured in their own spreads. Celebrating the most vital musician onstage, "The Drummer" is filled with hundreds of color photos and candid quotes from the industry's heaviest hitters. ...

It retails for $27.95 but Amazon has it for $18.45. This would make a great Christmas gift (it would for me at least!).
