Site updates and NEP news (12/15/07)

Here are a few updates from the site, as well as a few NEP news items.

Site updates

  • Two new postcards posted to the Postcards from Neil section.
  • Four new drum kits posted to my Replicas page. These include kits from Pierre Martin, Johnny Sillers, Adam Alquist, and an R30 commemorative kit from John Buckland. As an added treat, I've included a few YouTube videos from Pierre and Johnny, and if you're a fan of Neil Peart you need to check these guys out. I've included links to their YouTube pages and websites as well. Thanks to all the drummers for sending in their kit pictures.
  • New picture of Neil's S&A drum kit from Drumhead Issue 4 now on Neil Peart's Setup page.
