“Set up any old thing,” says Rush drummer Neil Peart when asked about the significance of his famously grandiose drum set, which, although he’s lost count himself, can include more than 30 pieces. “I like to play on unfamiliar drum sets actually. They’re tuned in a way I wouldn’t tune them and it makes me play in way a little differently. I’m wide open to that. I could make a record on any old drum set and it’s remarkable how it’s always going to be me.”
“I was thrilled to support the Teenage Cancer Trust while celebrating the music of The Who – a band that changed my life.” – Geddy Lee

About The TJ Martell World Tour Of Wine & Auction:
Each year, our World Tour of Wine guests join us for full tastings from the cellars of some the most avid wine lovers and collectors in the United States who donate their wine for those at their table to drink. The 220+ guests in attendance also enjoy an exquisite five-course gourmet meal (featuring courses prepared by a celebrity chef) at this dinner while bidding on silent auction lots from the wine, sports and music/entertainment fields, as well as 8-10 live auction lots. What makes the World Tour of Wine truly unique is the fact that, unlike most charity dinners where the wines are provided by either one or a select few vineyards, each table is pouring wine from the collections of its “wine host”. Therefore, no two tables are alike in terms of what is being poured, and “table hopping” between guests begins almost as soon as the corks are pulled!
Neil Peart chats with George on The Strombo Show – tune in this Sunday, Nov 9 on CBC Radio 2 in Canada from 8-11pm.
Here’s a teaser until then, with Neil on “We’ve never given up on a song.”
