Neil Peart: Fire on Ice, Making of The Hockey Theme DVD

Thu, Oct 21, 2010@9:42AM | comments

Earlier this year Canadian sports network TSN collaborated with Rush's Neil Peart to develop a new drum-centric version of the iconic Hockey Theme. The song was recorded at Ocean Way Studios in Hollywood on December 7th, 2009 and debuted during a Toronto Maple Leafs game back in February. Back in March, the Drum Channel released a 9-minute Making of The Hockey Theme video to their website and mentioned that a full-length making of DVD would be made available at a later date. As promised, The Drum Channel has produced a 90-minute making of DVD titled Neil Peart: Fire on Ice, Making of The Hockey Theme which can be purchased at this link. From the product description:

Neil Peart gives a behind the scenes tour of the making of "The Hockey Theme". Canada's TSN (The Sports Network) decided to recreate the hockey theme; they wanted to use iconic Canadians to help in the revisal. The Hockey theme is recognized as Canada's second national anthem so when they decided to recreate it, they wanted to use the best, and the first person that came to mind was Rush drummer, Neil Peart. Neil also discusses a custom drum kit made by DW Drums with all of the different hockey team logos on it.
