Neil Peart: Roadshow: Landscape with Drums: A Concert Tour by Motorcycle
By Neil Peart



For his fourth memoir that revolves around sprawling journeys, Neil Peart delivers the first travelogue involving his band’s touring. While the tone is similar to his previous writings, Roadshow provides fleeting glimpses behind the curtain of Rush. He reminisces about his storied career with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, who have served in the trenches with the reclusive drummer for 30 years at the time of writing.

While Peart has never been one to let his guard down, fans will enjoy reading nuggets of the drummer’s storied career. Often criticized for his aloofness, Peart explains that shyness is the culprit for his unwillingness to interact with fans. He reveals humor by mentioning pseudonyms under which he has checked into various hotels through the years. Showing heartfelt emotion, the artist also alludes to the deaths of his first wife and daughter within a year of one another.

Peart often makes playful digs at the religious right, logging his favorite church signs’ messages along his journey. He laments the growing trend of uniformity of America. As a defiant gesture, he recalls old gigs at particular venues and then notes that said locations are now known as a corporate cell phone company arena, etc. The adept lyricist reconfirms his adept skill at both writing prose and expressing thoughtful observation of the human condition.
