Mystic Rhythms: Rush's Neil Peart On The First Rock Drummer - NPR

As part of their "Beat Week", today NPR Music posted a new interview (audio and text) with Neil Peart where he talks about the first rock drummer, Gene Krupa.
"He was the first rock drummer, in very many ways," Peart says. "Without Gene Krupa, there wouldn't have been a Keith Moon. He was the first drummer to command the spotlight and the first drummer to be celebrated for his solos, because they were very flamboyant. He did fundamentally easy things, but always made them look spectacular." For the full feature click here.
