Neil Peart: Anatomy Of A Drum Solo

This DVD features 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 highlight of each Rush performance.

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 (from Rush in Rio)
• two full Rush performances from Frankfurt ‘04, shown entirely 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.
