Neil Peart might be a Hall of Famer, but he’s still a beast behind the kit. The legendary Rush drummer has contributed beats and bluster to a pair of songs from Vertical Horizon’s upcoming sixth studio album, “Echoes From The Underground.”
Billboard can reveal a behind-the-scenes glimpse at Peart’s drum-tracking sessions for the song "Instamatic."
Peart’s in tight form. And he’s relaxed, talking drumming structures and quipping about how his kick-drum has been converted with a white blanket to look like an igloo. “I think it’s a Canadian joke,” he deadpans. His stick-catch at the end of the clip, however, could do with some work.
