The result: 1,000 emails from across the globe.
The emailed questions have varied from the most basic to the highly complex in regard to Peart's drumming approach. During an initial audit, many questions posed to Peart focused on how his influences have been as well as more technical, such as how he developed such a diverse left hand approach.
We were very intrigued by the initial results," said Phil Hood, publisher and one of the founders of DRUM! Magazine. Neil is just one of those drummers appreciated by drummers of all ages and walks of life so we anticipate a really diverse and cool story. As previously announced, Andy Doerschuk, editor and another founder of DRUM!, will take the questions and create and integrated editorial cover story.
He's already beginning to get nervous regarding deadline. And, on that note, all emails have to be received by DRUM! Magazine by March 15th. Stay tuned, we'll keep you informed on the Email Neil Editorial Campaign" as it rolls out.
