    RIP Neal. He was one of the very best to ever beat the sticks, I feel fortunate to have seen Rush's shows when they were at the height of their powers.

    This is just terrible, I'm so upset. He was one of the best, and a childhood (teenage) idle for me, along with Gilles Villeneuve, Ken Read and Yvan Cournoyer. Yeah I'm Canadian eh!

    Re: RIP - Neil Peart

    I remember watching in amazement when Neil did a 20 minute drum solo with that huge drum kit. The best drummer I ever heard. RIP Neil.

    Re: RIP - Neil Peart

    Devastating news,....diehard Rush fan here growing up in Western NY right across the border.

    Genius group, master musicians and great guys. I literally grew up with their music from their first album on, experienced them in small and large venues,.....extremely sad.

    Best rock drummer in the world, bar none.

    His life journey and trials are inspirational...read his book "Ghost Rider".

    As someone else said (and I love the phase), growing up with Rush in Western NY from album #1 onward, "in the sense of rock
    music, Rush played the soundtrack of my life." Very true...

    A huge loss...Very Sad days.
