Hear Neil Peart isolated drums on Rush’s “YYZ”:

“YYZ” is from Rush’s 1981 album Moving Pictures. It is one of the band’s most popular pieces and a staple of the band’s live performances.

The live album Exit…Stage Left (1981) and the concert video recording A Show of Hands (1989) both include versions in which Peart incorporates a drum solo; as an interlude on the former, and as a segue out of the piece on the latter.

YYZ is the IATA airport identification code of Toronto Pearson International Airport, near Rush’s hometown.

Born in the Canadian city of Hamilton, Peart initially entered the music universe while studying piano. But he never showed much appreciation for the instrument. When he was fourteen, his parents presented him with a drum kit. Peart participated in some groups in his teens. But his life changed – and rock’s trajectory – in 1975, when he joined bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson of Rush.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
