RIP Neal Peart

An absolute legend. The world is a poorer place without him. Best E.
I am absolutely gutted.
I count myself fortunate to have seen them more than a few times over more than the last several years. Absolutely freaking gutted. RIP Professor, and best wishes to your friends and family.
i heard it on the radio
Neal, was a great drummer. I do not know Rush, while i knew almost anything about artist, bands. I understand he was a kind of Jimmy Hendriks, but than on drums.
time to listen
I decided to listen to Rush. I think i go to recognize some songs of Rush. ...
What you say, i thought about. I do not heard Rush on the radio, and many music i discover by listening radio. Imagine Dragons Paramore. Many music i discover by family members. This artist i discover by coincidence by an uncle, the record of Kraftwerk - ...
We might be of different generations or geographies.
In North America, Rush had decent radio play in the 80s and early 90s. Nothing now, except occasionally on Classic Rock stations. By the way, my moniker -- Vital Signs -- is a much-loved (by me) Rush song. Masterful lyrics by Neal Peart. I did enjoy stayi...
I love this site but am a classic lurker, as my posting count shows. For this, however, I have to come out of hiding. I agree 100%. The 2112 story is legendary (at least among Rush fans...) and epitomizes their integrity and spirit. In a nutshell, while t...
(maybe tied with Wolves Lower). And here’s to blah! Arguably the greatest acceptance “speech” ever.
Rush, love or hate them, can't deny their unique and varied approach. Hard work payed off handsomely for them.
Great summation of the 2112 epic.
Some music from my youth has not lived on, but Rush still does (and they still made excellent albums in the last decade, Snakes and Arrows being my favorite of the recent ones).
My Number One
A strong argument can be made Neil was the most uniquely gifted drummer in Rock Music History. His combined Divinely given talent as a player with a cerebral approach to his instrument along with world class ability as a lyricist. Very rare indeed.
Rolling Stone magazine
He was the forth best drummer of all time. Favorite drummers is for me different, than the best or a mix between. Ginger Baker from Cream, had that great beat. In i feel free, he drum dry, and that sound fits perfectly with Eric his first riff and Jack Br...
The tale goes that Ringo was not the best drummer. My own words are, Ringo was a face. Nicolas, do you want a Beatles topic? ;0
How could I have missed this news . . .
. . . for a whole day? The damnedest thing is Peart came up in casual conversation with one of my buddies not all that long ago. There's a new book out about Charlie Watts, Sympathy for the Drummer . Everyone on this site knows I worship the Stones; in Ch...
This is the saddest news...
to break it a long time. Grew up with this band from my teens and travelled to the states especially to see them during their R40 tour. So many memories associated with each album, I couldn’t sleep the night before waiting on each new release. Peart was m...
To qualify the above...
and put things straight, when I say the States, it was actually Canada, my wife pointing out my reference is often viewed an insult to Canadians! It was a memorable trip all said and done.
