In fact, the company has set up a special email address, firstname.lastname@example.org so the Neil Peart population can have their say. (The readers can also go online or access a question page on DRUM!'s Youtube page.
Those fans who want to participate simply email their questions and, if chosen by editor, Andy Doerschuk, will have their names and pictures included in the story. We've done this once before and it was a great success, said Phil Hood, publisher of Enter Music Publishing. With Neils fans it will be even better. We're very curious to see what the results will be of our email story campaign.
After receiving all of the interview questions, which are due by March 15, Doerschuk will then weave them into an integrated interview. Neil Peart seemed like a great pick for this kind of story, Doerschuk said. After all, he has won DRUM! Magazine's drummie of the year for two straight years. Our fan base, regardless of age, obviously respects him and that did play into our decision to try this with him.
DRUM! Magazine expects a great response from Peart fans to this opportunity. The company just hopes that its Drumlink.com server will not explode due to the amount of incoming email.
