Rush: Neil Peart instructional video due this fall

October is shaping up to be a good one for Rush fans.

RushIsABand reports drummer Neil Peart's new instructional DVD, "Taking Center Stage: A Lifetime Of Live Performance," will be released on October 14.

Fans will be treated to more than 6 hours of Rush video; here’s more details from the product description:

"Filmed in various locations over the course of a year, Neil Peart takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at Rush's 2010-11 'Time Machine' tour. This includes rare and exclusive footage of Neil's personal pre-tour rehearsals and backstage events at a Rush concert (including a visit to the soundcheck, and an unprecedented backstage interview as Neil warms up for the show). Neil also presents a detailed look at every single song in the tour's set list. Each song features analysis and demonstrations by Neil, which are coupled with a detailed PDF eBook containing transcription of his parts. At the end of each song discussion, the viewer is transported onstage to a Rush concert to see the actual live performance of the song from the perspective of the drum cameras only. 6 hours, 40 minutes."
