‘Late Show’ Rush: Watch Neil Peart’s Epic Drum Solo on ‘Letterman’ (Video)

The legendary rock drummer caps off “Drum Solo Week” in style

"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.

Fans of "Freaks and Geeks," the cult classic created by Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, will no doubt recall that the inventive Peart was a hero to Jason Segel's character, Nick.
