Late Rush drummer Neil Peart’s voice narrates a new eight-minute inspirational short film that has been released just five months after he passed away in January.
Peart collaborated with DW Drums for this video, which is called Growth Rings, and it’s supposed to celebrate “the way in which music marks moments in our lives,” according to a statement. “Just as the life of a tree can be understood through its growth rings, we can look at the milestones and eras of our lives and reminiscence of the songs and bands that resonated with us during those times.”
The clip sees Peart talking about how the evolution of music is similar to the growth rings on a tree, showing the “weather of its times.”
