RUSH Drumline Style

According to a posting on the RUSH fan site Power Windows, The Placer Highschool Drumline, from Auburn California, will be performing a medley of RUSH at this Friday's (March 18) "Winter Drumline and Guard Spectacular". The piece, entitled "Red Star", opens with "YYZ", then goes into the intro of "The Spirit of Radio" and ends with "Tom Sawyer". Placer High Drumline Coach Mark Leftridge writes that "although the line were newcomers to RUSH, they were intrigued when a bass player and guitar player arrived at Drumline rehearsal. The music is by far the toughest music they have seen to date as we endeavor to split Neil's arms and legs across 11 drummers!! This is by no means a 'traditional' competition piece, but as this is our innagural year, we wanted to go in and make a statement and not worry about the expected pomp and circumstance of the event, rather to entertain drummers from all over the state."

The Winter Drumline and Guard Spectacular takes place this Friday, March 18 at Del Oro High School in Loomis California. First line steps off at 5pm PST, Placer High is at 6:00pm.
