Neil Peart's August, 2011 Rhythm magazine feature now online

Thu, Sep 1, 2011@12:32PM | comments

The August, 2011 issue of the UK's Rhythm magazine contains an 11-page cover feature/interview with Neil Peart. Included in the feature is a guided tour of the Time Machine Tour kit from Neil's drum tech Lorne Wheaton. Earlier this month posted several photos from the kit tour to their website along with a few snippets from the interview here. But now the entire article is available thanks to John over at who has transcribed it and posted online at this link. The feature includes the guided tour of Neil's kit mentioned above along with Neil's interview where he talks about what drives his timekeeping, improvisation, and the benefits of touring. There's also a piece on Neil's latest drum teacher Freddie Gruber, excerpts from Neil's first Rhythm cover feature back in 1987, and a short piece where Neil's drum tech Lorne Wheaton talks about Neil's gear. Check it out at this link. Thanks John!
