Rush Tour Dates

Well, nothing is official yet, you'll have to wait until March 26. There are lists of unofficial dates out there on several web sites and some data's show up now and then at

I'll post the list of dates as soon as I can get a hold of them.

Big Neil Peart Update

Neil's posted a huge update at his site: The Count of Words

Some tidbits:
The essay for Sankes and Arrows is too big for the booklet, so it'll end up online--3300 words or so.

He's working on a Modern Drummer article and another article will be published in an upcoming issue of Motorcyclist.

Oh, and he's having a new drum set made: "As for the finish and hardware, that’s going to be a surprise. I’ll only say, “Black is the new gold,” and “Red is the new black.”"

Worth a read, as usual.
