Neil Peart Master Class: Free Lesson 9 - Neil performs his warm-up routine is offering a free lesson from Neil Peart's Frontiers of Composition and Articulation.

I've watched the entire class when it was first released in June, 2009, and it's a great instructional video. Important note: It appears when purchasing a Master Class, you "subscribe" to the class for 12 months (you don't download the content).

Dean and Ashley, the owners of Neil Peart's first Slingerland drum kit that was used on All the World's a Stage, 2112, Caress of Steel, and Fly by Night, have sent out their annual Chromey Christmas Card.

I think all you drummers out there will appreciate the "Parts List" for this Christmas Tree. Feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the card.

Documentary "The Big Story of Small Potatoes" now on YouTube

The documentary The Big Story of Small Potatoes: Niagara's Rock Music History 1964 - 1974 is now available on YouTube in 4 parts, as well as for purchase.

Neil Peart was a part of this music scene, although he wasn't interviewed for the documentary. The director of the film, Paul Miil, told me via e-mail, last year "any Peart fan would enjoy this unique insight into the background of such an interesting and by all accounts 'great guy.'"
