  • Apparently he had brain cancer. One of the GOATs for sure. He was one incredible drummer and a huge part of Rush' success through the years. Thank you for the music and the memories. RIP brother.

  • So sad and shocking! One of my fave drummers ever! I could never comprehend how he was able to do the stuff he did behind the kit. What a tragic loss.

  • I played drums VERY poorly in junior high and high school, and if I had to pick a seminal moment of my childhood that made me want to be a drummer, it was listening to the Working Man drum solo on All The World's a Stage.

    There was no Youtube to watch Neil Pert, and I remember listening to this album and thinking "how is this ONE dude?, It's impossible what he's doing on this song."

    Not impossible, just Neil Pert. God.

    Don't know if you ever actually saw him live, but the thing that most struck me watching him was how effortless he made it look when in reality it was anything but.

  • I grew up to Rush and counted them as one of my favorite rock bands, and not many held a candle to them from a depth, talent and lyrical standpoint. Sure I had my fun with the Motley Crues and Van Halens of the 80s but Rush will forever hold a special place in my memories and heart growing up.

    He lost his common law wife and daughter years ago. I would like to think he is currently embracing them both in complete joy, peace and love that simply cannot be matched here on Earth.

  • Those that grew up in that era of music had the blessing of Neil Peart, Jon Bonham, Ginger Baker and Keith Moon to enjoy, what a generation of talent.

  • Even if you do not care for their music, one should go to youtube and watch some live videos of these guys.

    The talent, their absolute devotion to their fans..the enjoyment they got from playing live.... their humor and their insistence on not compromising their integrity or music kept them onstage and at the top of their profession for 50 years.
    Thank you Neil Peart..you weren't just a generational talent..you were an innovator and an inspiration.

    RIP

    I did. Saw them in college up in Vancouver in 1990? 1991? I believe the Presto tour, so whatever year that was.

    But it was college, so let's just say by the time we got from Western across the border and drank a case of Kokanees a piece before the concerts I don't remember much......and we were in like the 2nd to last row of BC Place, so we had a better view of the planets rotating than the stage.

    Needless to say I wish I would have got a do over so I could appreciate the band and music more than I did then.

    Kind of the most bitter sweet part of iconic bands, most of us think "ahh I'll see them the next time around.". Not having that sense of urgency that there might not be a next time around.

  • My first "big" concert, I saw Rush at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto just after Farewell to Kings was released. An annual Christmas/New Years show that they played there for many years. Still rates in my top 10 concerts ever.

    An amazingly full sound for three guys on a stage.
    Drums, bells, gongs, double-necked everything, Moog pedals. And so tight, after so much live playing.
    Ridiculously powerful flash pots.

    And Kimonas.

    I didn't see them until the Grace Under Pressure tour, 1984.

    That was the one and only time I ever saw them. In the Tacoma Dome. I was high on acid, 3 rows back and every bit as awesome as it sounds.

    I was so pleased to hear the NFL tip a cap to Neil today...Both games had transitions to commercial with Rush classics. The 49ers game had a transition to Limelight and the Ravens game had Tom Sawyer. Very cool.

  • So sad to hear this news. I love Rush, although I don't have much of their music. They are virtually unknown in Australia, as are Marillion and also Porcupine Tree.

  • "one must put up barriers, to keep oneself intact"………...Limelight

    Neil Peart talking about the trappings of fame and fortune as a Rockstar. Its no wonder the members of Rush turned out to be "regular guys" with this attitude. its just who they were/are.

    I always thought that it was a crime that it took so long to induct them into the RHOF.

    Sweet! That's the same GUP show I was at! I wasn't on acid tho, just smokin' :pimp: FANTASTIC show, but then I never saw a bad Rush show and I saw them 13 times.

    Thanks for the info on the outro music during Ravens game. I was at dinner and didn't catch it. Did catch Limelight outro during the 9ers game. Pumped my fist when I heard it.
