Hi listers. I've just submitted Roadshow, A Landscape With Drums, A Concert tour by motorcycle. Yes, that's one title. It's sure to be a fantastic read for those interested. Whoever validates this one shouldn't have a problem.



Here's what some critics have said about the book.

Praise for Roadshow by Neil Peart

"In this unique travelogue, Peart leverages his considerable literary penmanship to describe the joys and rigors of a rock tour as well as his impressions of the politics, social mores, and cultural heterogeneity he encounters across states and nations. As Peart travels for his art, he perfectly describes the art of travel."
­Christian Science Monitor

"Peart has by now created his own genre­the existentialist travel guide. ... His intellectual and, dare I say it, spiritual wanderlust elevate his prose writing toward the sublime. . . . Peart has a reporter's eye and a poet's heart, and in Roadshow, the twain have met to eloquent effect."
­The Buffalo News

"[Peart] narrates clearly with a mix of passion and critical detachment that serves his subjects well. ... His unique commute . . . offers insights into the land, the people that inhabit it and, not least, himself. It's a hell of a journey."
­The Hartford Courant

"Peart uses spare, dynamic prose to explore human relationships in work and friendship, love and grief."
­Pittsburgh City Paper

"Roadshow is Peart's strongest literary contribution yet. . . . Inspirational and entertaining ... a must read for all who value adventure, relationships, and humor. . . . The memorable and real events are exciting, thrilling, scary, happy, and sad­retold with captivating and vivid description. ... As a transmission of life philosophy and values . . . the author tells his story powerfully, yet subtly."
­BMW Owners News

More praise for Roadshow by Neil Peart

"A thoughtful, fascinating and at times hilarious read, for Neil Peart is a true man of letters. . . [with] extraordinary gifts as a story teller. ... It is his unabashed enthusiasm for life and his thirst for knowledge­all knowledge­that touched me the most."
­Jim Ladd, KLOS Los Angeles

"A real great read not only for rock fans, but for anyone who wants a tour of the American landscape in the words of one of music's greatest drummers and lyricists. Neil takes the reader on a great ride that is not to be missed." ­Eddie Trunk, VH1 VJ, and host of the syndicated radio show Eddie Trunk Rocks

"Neil Peart straps us in the sidecar for a thrilling travelogue that takes us from behind the music and out on a Roadshow you'll never forget!"
­Music Connection

"Consistently funny . . . Roadshow has many light-hearted moments."
­Cleveland Free Times

"Neil rides a motorcycle to Rush concert events and writes about his en-route experiences on two wheels with the same heart that defines his drumming."
­Motorcycle Mojo
