musicNEWS: Rush Movie? Neil Peart Bio Rights Acquired

[press release] Cathy Rich, daughter of legendary jazz drummer Buddy Rich has acquired the film and television rights to produce the Neil Peart bio Ghost Rider through her production company Scabeba Entertainment. The Drainie-Taylor biography prize finalist was also chosen as one of the five most exceptional biographies of the year.

Neil Peart, internationally best-selling author, lyricist and Hall of Fame drummer for the renowned rock band Rush, is the most successful band in Canadian rock music. Rush has recently made history by becoming the first band to celebrate 30 years together with the original members and they are currently on the Rush 30th Anniversary World Tour.

Ghost Rider is a bold, brilliantly written, intense, exciting, and ultimately triumphant narrative memoir from a gifted writer and musician, who started out as a man reduced to trying to stay alive by staying on the move. Within a ten-month period, Neil Peart suffered family losses so devastating that they left him a ghost, physically a man, but with nothing.

Rich states that she is "thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to collaborate on such an inspiring story of personal triumph". Rich and Peart became friends in 1992 when Neil appeared on the Buddy Rich Memorial Scholarship concert, in his first foray outside of Rush. They also collaborated on the Grammy-nominated CD's Burning for Buddy, parts 1 and 2.
