Freaky drum set configurations that are totally metal

The Laying Down on The Job one is pretty amusing, also the one where he’s got some cymbals behind him is a pretty neat set up. Awkward but neat.


The expressions of joy on his face during “Going in Circles” was absolutely delightful!


It reminded me of seeing Rush on the Hold Your Fire tour in '88 (god just typing that makes me feel old…)

Neil Peart had a (huge) traditional drumkit in front of him, and an electronic kit behind. He paused at one point and the whole riser rotated quickly to put the electronic kit in front to carry on playing - my 20 yr old self was most impressed!

Almost made it to 5 comments in a drum thread, without a Neil Peart comment.
