Gavin Harrison talks about meeting Neil Peart


Recommended Posts

I saw this cool video today with my favorite living drummer, Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson, The Pineapple Thief) - along with the editor of Modern Drummer magazine (David Frangioni) and some guy from Audioholics. At about 28:12 he describes meeting Neil around 2003; apparently Neil actually e-mailed him (got his email from Praetorian - good job!) It's neat to hear about how they met up and had lunch and hung out in Neil's man-cave. I wish Neil had done the duet with Gavin that they describe (he turned it down as it made him too anxious; I believe this is the duet that Simon Phillips ended up doing with him.) Anyway, enjoy!

I looked for a video of Gavin's tribute performance, did not find it.


I believe it's for sale on Modern Drummer.com. It was part of the 2020 MD Festival - A Tribute to Neil. It was an online "festival" and they sold tickets that allowed for viewing throughout the year
