New NP drum set replicas and bass drum heads

I've posted three new entries on the Neil Peart drum kit replicas page.

Thanks to Brian, Kerry, and Alan for sending in these pictures. If you'd like to send me a picture of your drum kit (or other drum-related item) and tell me how Neil inspired it, I'll post it to this site.

Neil Peart drum clinic video from 1992

Thanks to, I discovered this incredibly rare video of Neil Peart giving a drum clinic. It's very short (less than a minute) but worth watching.

This clinic took place in Irvine Meadows, CA, during the Roll the Bones tour. My understanding is Neil gave this clinic to Percussion Institute of Technology students.

Neil has only given two drum clinics that I know of. The other he describes in this article, The Quest for New Drums.
