National Post Interview with Neil Peart about "Far and Away"

To his own drum: Rush's Neil Peart explores the world's back roads in Far and Away

Rush drummer Neil Peart poses for a portrait in the band's Toronto rehearsal space, Wednesday afternoon, March 23, 2011.

In case you're wondering, there are a bunch of inaccuracies in the article (as well as a typo).

"Everything's been custom-made," he says, tracing his fingers over African drums, Indian drums, valves and electronic pads. "I was a part of the whole concept process. ... I went over 200 different samples [before] choosing these ones for my solo."

Thanks to Rushisaband for the head's up!
