June 17, 2011

Tonight, one of the greatest rock drummers of all time, Neil Peart of Rush, is on the show. We're really excited because Neil doesn't do a lot of interviews. And of course, Rush is one of the most influential and iconic bands to ever come out of this country. We'll talk about the early days of Rush, the big moments in their career and Neil's adventures on the open road.

And here's something perhaps only the hardcore Rush fan knows. Neil makes a cameo in a film called 'Adventures of Power.' It's a comedy about a small town guy who's on a quest to become the world's greatest air drummer. The film is written and directed by Ari Gold, who also stars in it alongside Jane Lynch (Glee), Michael McKean (Spinal Tap), Adrian Grenier (Entourage) and Shoshannah Stern (Weeds). It premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and recently opened The 2011 Toronto International Deaf Film Festival.

Here's the trailer:
