Interview with Neil Peart: CANOE -- Rush: Rush-ing into Songwriters Hall

Here's yet another interview with Neil Peart. Some really interesting stuff in this one. For example, here's what he had to say about Subdivisions.

"It's a very unusual song construction lyrically and musically that we managed to make work," he said. "It was written at a time when we weren't working, so to speak. We were mixing a live album and we just started playing around and wrote a song for fun. Although it's very serious in it's musical structure, one of the most complicated actually that we've had in terms of arrangement drum part alone, it's a really intricate drum part to play and consequently I still love playing it almost 30 years later and that's a good testament."
