More details about Neil Peart's David Letterman appearance

TVLine reports that Neil Peart will be the last drummer in a week full of drum solos on David Letterman:

Band geeks unite: Late Show with David Letterman is kicking off its first ever "Drum Solo Week."

The late-night staple is dedicating a week's worth of episodes to performances by some of the music industry's top percussionists, starting with a standout solo on Monday, June 6 from the Late Show's very own Anton Fig, the drummer in Paul Shaffer's band.

The following night, Letterman welcomes Sheila E. and her world renowned skill with the sticks.

On Wednesday, June 8, drum legend Roy Haynes takes the stage, boasting a career filled with Miles Davis and Sarah Vaughn collaborations (to name a few). And rounding out the week is a performance by Rush's Neil Peart, a drummer who is often regarded as one of rock music's greatest.


The Late Show's "Drum Solo Week" debuts Monday, June 6 at 11:35/10:35c on CBS.

Still no word about whether Neil will be live on the show or pre-taped.

Thanks to and Rushisaband for the head's up.
