Brian Brodeur, founder and president of NewYorkDVD, a DVD development, design and authoring firm, has completed Neil Peart's Anatomy of a Drum Solo DVD, which was produced by Hudson Music. The two-disc package features the Rush drummer discussing the elements of his nine-minute tour de force solo, a highlight of each Rush performance. Using a solo recorded in Frankfurt, Germany, in September 2004, Peart describes the inspiration and conceptual thinking behind his solos. Included are three multi-angles of the Frankfurt solo; the solo for the Grammy Award — nominated “O Baterista”; two full Rush performances shot from the drum cameras' point of view; interviews with Peart's drum tech Lorne Wheato, and Rush co-producer/engineer Paul Northfield; a previously unreleased solo from the 1994 Rush Counterparts tour; and much more.
