Adjunct Perfessor

So, "Between the Sun and Moon" comes up on iTunes...it's one of those "new" Rush tracks that only come into my life on shuffle—but it's really good. So I turn it up. Then I listen again, drumming away on my desk. After it ends, I decide to go online and see if there's a video. Sometimes watching Neil Peart play can be the most gratifying experience for me, and since I'm in the midst of what might turn into an all-nighter, I deserve it. Alas, there is no video...but I did find this.

Not quite Neil Peart, but pretty damn close. He runs out of toms on the big fills, but despite a 5-piece kit, he hits every mark. God, I wish I could play drums...

UPDATE: He nails Xanadu too. My favorite all-time Rush track.

UPDATE 2: The man.

I really like Mick Fleetwood's work but honestly, comparing Mick with Neil Peart...Peart wins I think. Not a landslide by any means.
