Hi everyone! I've asked the forum admin if it would be okay to post about Rhythm Magazine's up-coming special tribute to Neil, out at the end of this month (November 2020). We have been working on this issue for a while now - we had to shut temporarily when shops and airports closed earlier this year, and so this issue, due out originally in April, is long overdue and much anticipated, but it has also given us the opportunity to really craft it - and it is a truly amazing tribute to The Professor. We have the main feature about Neil, covering his life as a drummer and world-famous member of Rush, his sound and various setups and his personal journey as a musician, lyricist and man. Then we have a moving set of tributes from drummers he influenced and inspired, including Mike Portnoy (who's written a brilliant Recommended Listening article all about his favourite Rush albums and tracks, and why), Jon Theodore, Marco Minnemann, Craig Blundell, Tim 'Herb' Alexander, Peter Erskine and many more; and from people in the industry, including John Good at DW and Chris Stankee at Sabian. And rounding it out, we have a spread devoted to Neil's drummer teacher, Freddie Gruber, who Neil learned from later in his drumming career, helping him with his setup and method, helping him move more fluidly around his set - this is by Dave Weckl and Steve Smith, two very well-known drummers who also studied with Freddie. We are a drumming mag in the UK but we sell the magazine in shops around the world, though not everywhere, and so in case anyone here would be interested, I wanted to give some details about it and links to our online shop: www.rhythmdrumnetwork.com A copy is selling for £5.99 (UK delivery), prices change by delivery location to include p+p. Subscriptions - if you are interested in drumming or are a drummer yourself - start at £49.99 (UK) - 10 issues a year (1 every 5-6 weeks). I hope you find the time to check it out - it is a wonderful tribute paying homage to one of the best drummers and lyricists ever and who is so sorely missed. Thank you for your time, Ondine Barry, Publisher Rhythm Magazine
