Neil Peart update: October 2014 - "Science Island"
Once again, Neil Peart has updated the "News, Weather & Sports" section of his website: October 2014: "Science Island."
This installment focuses on Neil's summertime visit to the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, including a return to the abandoned Le Studio building for an interview with Banger Films (working on a new documentary about Geddy Lee!). Le Studio is where Rush recorded many of their albums, including: Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Signals, Exit... Stage Left, Grace Under Pressure, Presto, Roll the Bones, and Counterparts.
Neil describes the experience of revisiting Le Studio:
"At the moment of arriving, and even on the way there, I felt some emotions bubbling up, but I kind of pushed them down for the moment--unsure exactly what I was feeling, or would feel. Later I realized that the experience was really just too much to process all at once--because no other place on Earth had been more important in my life. So that's big."
