Rush drummer Neil Peart’s final book is set for release this spring.
“Silver Surfers: Sports Cars of the Sixties” will be published by Insight Editions on May 7 as a celebration of the late musician’s lifelong passion for collecting cars.
The 96-page coffee table book features an array of colourful images, many of which Peart personally curated, alongside some of his humorous anecdotes. His widow Carrie Nuttall-Peart has penned the book’s foreword.
Peart wrote several travel memoirs throughout his life chronicling his experiences on his motorcycle trips around the world.
This project was in the works before the drummer died of brain cancer in 2020 at age 67.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Brain Tumor Association and the Neil Peart Memorial, a proposed two-statue tribute to the late drummer that would be erected at Lakeside Park in his St. Catharines, Ont. hometown.
