RIP, Neil Peart...absolutely crushed by this one.

I grew up in a predominantly pop household, so I didn't get introduced to Rush and the genius of drummer Neil Peart until high school. But hearing "Tom Sawyer" for the first time (seems like a lot of people got their introduction to Rush with this song) absolutely blew me away and it stuck with me. Absolute legend.

Back in 1994 Neil Peart sat in with the Buddy Rich Big Band and performed Cotton Tail, which included one amazing drum solo. I highly recommend you watch this entire thing (I love big band music), but if you must skip ahead the drum solo starts around the 3:30-3:45 mark. The whole thing's a treat though.
