Well last night was certainly what I would describe as epic.  Not only did the Dallas Mavericks take the lead in the NBA finals, but Neil Peart also performed an awesome drum solo on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Now as a drummer and Rush fan myself.  I thought this kicked ass!  If you missed it, check out the clip at the bottom of the page.

"I love the sound of Neil Peart's drums in the morning!"

That's what Rush fans who missed the legendary dummer's performance on "Late Show with David Letterman" may be saying as they watch his proggy solo in the 5-minute clip below.

Peart capped off the late-night program's "Drum Solo" theme week, which previously saw "Letterman" house drummer Anton Fig, funk percussionist Sheila E. and jazz drummer Roy Haynes dropping by.
