Learn to cook with Neil Peart!



Neil Peart

is set to launch a new cooking department on his web site on 4 July -

Bubba's Bar 'n' Grill


Bubba is Peart's alter-ego. On the site Bubba will be offering helpful cooking tips and easy recipes, following the motto of 'Good Simple Food'. A small selection will go up to begin with, but the catalogue will grow over time, presented through stories that aim to illuminate, instruct, and entertain.

Bubba's mission statement reads: "I have learned a few things about preparing good simple food that might be worth sharing. In this space I will assemble and present some of that lore, along with some simple recipes, because it seems a shame that other Bubbas (of any gender and ethnicity) should have to suffer the foolishness of my youth — I was in my forties before I learned to cook anything more complicated than soft-boiled eggs."

Visit Bubba's Bar 'n' Grill, where you will learn about the One Hour Rule, the Queen's Portion and why Bubba says, "If you want to impress a woman, bake her a pie."

Watch out Delia!

I'm MusicRadar's eCommerce Editor. In addition to testing the latest music gear, with a particular focus on electronic drums, it's my job to manage the 300+ buyer's guides on MusicRadar and help musicians find the right gear for them at the best prices. I dabble with guitar, but my main instrument is the drums, which I have been playing for 24 years. I've been a part of the music gear industry for 20 years, including 7 years as Editor of the UK's best-selling drum magazine Rhythm, and 5 years as a freelance music writer, during which time I worked with the world's biggest instrument brands including Roland, Boss, Laney and Natal.
