Neil Peart..Rush drummer..dead at 67.

Recommended Posts

The most accurate drummer of all time, basically a human metronome.

 

But you have to check out his lyrics. He wrote most of the lyrics for Rush and they are immensely beautiful and insightful.

Saw this posted elsewhere on the net. .........

 

God on drums, always the "Working man", go "Fly by night", taking the "Exit stage left", leaving the "Limelight" never took the "Big Money", always "Closer to the heart". Leaving "Time Stand Still" driving away in that "Red Barchetta". Thanks for the "Distant Early Warning", encouraging our "Freewill" with the "Spirit of radio". Let your "Permanent waves" guide us all to the "Temples of Syrinx". Forever a "Tom Sawyer", a true "New World Man"... Thanks for the memories.

That was an awesome read and you weren't lying about that bagel!  

Not my quote.  It’s a quote from Todd Sucherman, currently playing drums for the band Styx.  He is very good in his own right.

Whoa, just saw this somewhere else....he was brilliant, a master of his craft.  Saw them many times when I was young.

 

These words of his really ring true in the world today, with what we're currently experiencing (one of my favourite songs by them):

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start

 

Truly a sad day.

I think my favorite was the one where the guy says he can't help but chuckle at the hundreds of bands with gigs tonight, trying to figure out an easy Rush song to play....

I started drumming at 11.

I know enough to know, that I don't know how to drum like him.

What a talent he was. What. A. Talent. 

 

Gone too soon. 

Rest in peace.

I seen Rush twice in the early 80's, very very good performing live band. The only time i have ever seen like a third of the audience performing air drums along with the songs!! While his drumming was an amazing part of his life, lyrics to all the Rush songs was probably even larger than that. RIP Neil Peart :(

Absolute legend best drummer far and above anyone else. Grew up with Rush on my jean jacket been to 6 concerts my brother is a professional drummer due to Neil, his whole life has been drums. Sad life story with the loss of wife and daughter but incredible story about his and Rush's career. Condolences to his family and Geddy & Alex, a true loss for Canada and music in general. I shed a tear in his memory RIP Neil Peart

Anyone interested in Rush/Peart should watch this:

This doc really shows who Peart was a person (amazing guy really), and how Rush sort of took off when he joined.
