Neil Peart On 'Moving Pictures': Track-By-Track

The Rush drummer and author of "Far and Away: A Prize Every Time" breaks down the band's classic album 'Moving Pictures', track-by- track...

'That was an important time musically and a great time for the three of us in terms of having a good time and sharing our goals and making music,' he says about the recording of the album, originally released in 1981. 'There was nothing self-indulgent or so-called pretentious about it. It was true boyish enthusiasm that was involved in creating all those things. We were progressing and learning and developing taste at the same time.'

Rush is playing 'Moving Pictures' in its entirety on its current Time Machine Tour. 'We still like to play these songs,' says Peart, 'and we're still proud of them.'
