Modern Drummer interview with Neil Peart

Modern Drummer has posted more of their interview with Neil Peart online. Here's the intro:

In Modern Drummer's December 2011 cover story, out now, Rush's Neil Peart discusses a particularly productive period in his and the band's long career. Peart's new DVD, Taking Center Stage: A Lifetime of Live Performance, has recently been released, hot on the heels of the eighty-one-show 2010-11 Time Machine tour, which the video documents in lush detail from Neil's perspective at the throne. A particularly noteworthy aspect of Rush's latest worldwide trek is that all three band members--Peart, bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee, and guitarist Alex Lifeson--made a conscious decision to improvise more on stage, which, as Neil says in MD, will almost certainly trickle down to the studio tracking of the upcoming Clockwork Angels album.

Neil Peart reflects on Ohio and the Time Machine tour

Neil Peart has written a nice article in the Plain Dealer about Rush's connection with Ohio, and some thoughts about the Cleveland "Time Machine" show. He also gives an update about Clockwork Angels.

Seven months later, in November 2011, as we release that performance into the world, we are back in the studio in Toronto, working on the "Clockwork Angels" project that we started almost two years ago, before the "Time Machine" tour. In fact, the first two chapters of the story, "Caravan" and "BU2B," were part of that show.
