3-DVD set in which Neil demonstrates drum parts from songs spanning the entire Rush catalog. Taped in various locations over the course of a year, it’s a behind-the- scenes look at Rush s 2010-11 Time Machine Tour. Includes footage of Neil’s pre-tour rehearsals and backstage events at a Rush concert (including a visit to the soundcheck, an a backstage interview, and his warm-up routine). Neil then presents (in an interview setting with Hudson s Joe Bergamini) a detailed look at each song in the Time Machine set list (which includes the entire Moving Pictures album). Each song is analyzed and demonstrated, live and in slow motion. Comes with a PDF containing transcriptions of Neil’s parts. The live performance is shown at the end of each song.
