Neil Peart

Stephen Clare of ChartAttack.com reports:

Neil Peart has been busy.
Since returning to full form in 2002, the 54-year-old drummer for Canadian mega-rock trio RUSH has been preoccupied with a series of personal and professional projects: two studio albums, subsequent concert tours, DVDs, a website, and the writing of three books, including his latest work, "Roadshow: Landscape With Drums".

Speaking on the phone from a Toronto recording studio where he and bandmates Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson are at work on their 18th original studio album, Peart explains his motivations for chronicling his motorcycle journeys during RUSH's 2004 30th anniversary tour.

"This book works on different levels," he says. "On the one hand, it became the logical culmination of so many desires to try and explain what it is really like to be a touring musician and the kinds of personal and artistic conflicts that exist in trying to survive and make a living doing something creatively satisfying.

"At the same time, it is a travel diary of sorts, as I have a passion to communicate what I see and who I meet when I am out there on my bike."

As the longtime beat-keeper and lyricist for his band, Peart is no stranger to shifting gears.

"It's a little like juggling hats," he says. "When I'm writing lyrics I always wear a cowboy hat, because I figure that you can never take yourself too seriously with a cowboy hat on.

"And then when I go in and work on drum parts, I'll put on my little African hat. Then, when I am writing prose, I'll wear either my BMW motorcycle hat or a Toronto Maple Leafs hat."

Steve Hackett on Genesis tour

Original Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett who left the band after “Wind and Wuthering” to pursue a successful solo career, has said of the forthcoming Genesis reunion tour:

"First of all I would like to congratulate Tony, Mike and Phil for flying the flag once again. Good luck to them and I really hope they have a very successful tour.

I was originally approached to discuss the possibility of a five piece which would have included Peter Gabriel and yours truly but since Peter's schedule precludes this, it makes sense for the other three to celebrate the band in their 'own special way' as it were ...."

Steve recently released a new record, Wild Orchids, which has been described as his best album for years. He starts a Japanese tour later this month and is planning a series of UK shows early in 2007.
