Neil Peart passed away on Tuesday, talent like his we will surely never see again. Sad. Now I have to break the news to the wife a life long Rush fanatic.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.

This land abounds in ruffians and varmints. Their numbers are legion, their evil skills commensurate.
No offense but I'm always amazed when one of the 60s-70s rockers passes away from old age. Just sayin'.

I went to a Rush concert in 84 and was blown away with Neil's drum solo. It was 10 minutes of awesomeness.

RIP Neal Peart. Thanks for entertaining us all over many years.

The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
I had never seen that.
It. was. freaking. AWESOME!
Awesome, amazing drummer. Rest in peace, Neil.

Always liked Rush and Neil was one of the reasons why.

Saw them in concert several times. Great band. The "professor" and his drum solos were always a big highlight of the shows. He will be missed.
Legend for sure...one of the most intricate (technically) and least copied Bands of all time ! True musicians....RIP

Rush was one of the biggest bands that made up the soundtrack of my youth. Neil's virtuoso drum skills were second to none, and the influence he's had on drummers all over the world can't be understated. What's often overlooked is that Neil also wrote the lyrics to Rush's songs, which were anything but stereotypical Rock lyrics. While Neil's drum solos were a study in percussion perfection, the greatness of his skills shined the brightest within Rush's songs.
Glad I got to see Rush in concert a few times. Now he's reunited with his daughter and wife.
