Tom Leigh Knight: Rock Drummer – the early years

This video is, I believe, the earliest known video recording of my playing. I was 19 (as were all of my band mates here) and I had been playing for about 6 or 7 years. At that time, Neil Peart from the band RUSH was my all-time hero and favorite drummer. In the video below, we play the live version of “YYZ” from Rush’s “Exit Stage Left” live album — complete with Neil’s entire solo. It took every birthday, Christmas, and any other special occasion throughout my entire high school career to amass all the drums and cymbals you’ll see in this video! Enjoy!
