Neal Peart has passed away

Godspeed, Neal Peart. May you find whatever you look for in the Available Light.

...

Seriously, this is a Canada based BB? No mention of Neal Peart?

Well, somebody in Georgia loved ya'.

I know some Americans that don't like this either. I like Rush. RIP

Not going for an international pissing contest. Just surprised that two days (since the notice was made public) have gone by since his passing (I got home, and my six-year-old let me know), and no mention here.

Several posts on FB about it and my old HS FB group posted Rush videos all day yesterday to honor him. It's okay...we know he is missed already.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

I was in a band YEARS (decades) ago and we did a bunch of Rush covers. I loved his books! He was probably one of the best percussionists EVER on the planet (certainly in the top 5 in my view). He had such tragedy to live through, and then found a new life.
I was absolutely in SHOCK when I found this out yesterday. I hope he is home now with his first wife and his daughter Selena.
Condolences to his wife and daughter Olivia. Rest In Peace.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

I just found out today. Surprising and sad. He deserved much more respect for his accomplishments and prowess. He is one of the top percussionists in the world. Doesn't matter whether you like Rush or not, he was excellent at his art.

Yeah. He lost his daughter and his wife within a year's span, and he mourned these tragedies by biking through West Africa...

Yeah,I 'd probably hit the bottle.

Instead. Hard.

Grew up listening to these guys in the 70's...

Saw Rush on their 40th final run in Portland with my brother... amazing.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

Saw the first of many RUSH shows in 1982.
Was and still is one of my favorite bands.

I realize I'm a stick in the mud here, but his name was Neil. And I only mention this because I respect him so very much that I want to be picky about honoring him.

Just so you know, @AandM, it's been one day since I found out about his passing (yesterday) and to be quite frank it has hit me hard. Even though I did not know him, Rush as a group was so influential on me as I grew up and into all of my adult years, that not having him on this earth is just incomprehensible.

One fun memory I have of Neil Peart is actually with my Dear Hubby, DD, who passed away himself two years ago. It was the ONE thing we'd argue about, and it was always more of a game than an actual argument: who was the better drummer? Neil Peart or Carter Beauford (of Dave Matthews Band). Naturally I argued on behalf of Neil. We did it like a logical debate, and presented everything from the silly (well...Neil has a better haircut) to the realistic (In the 70's and 80s when they were a huge force for prog rock he was doing revolutionary stuff with how he structured his drum parts, when he chose to do fills and how he composed those fills, and in my opinion broke ground for all of the Carter Beaufords of today.)

His drum kit was a dream.
His story was incredible.
His lyrics were poetry.
His musicianship was stellar.
His poitics were as close to libertarian as I've seen in rocknroll
And he will be sorely missed.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

Music has no borders. Saddest part is the loss of another part of the soundtrack of our lives. Neil Peart was a year younger than me. Makes you think a bit! RIP Neil.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

I was able to see them in 1977.” Working Man” was and still is my favorite Rush tune. I have all their early releases in vinyl. My 25 year old son now has a turntable as he enjoys Rush. He found one of their ”Caress of Steel” and is hooked.

Neil was one of the most cerebral lyricists. 2112 featured some masterful lyrics of his. Temples of Syrinx if I am not mistaken was inspired by Ayn Rands “Atlas Shrugged”. Deep stuff.

Re: Neal Peart has passed away

Yesterday on SirusXM Deep Tracks, they played Rush all day. They played the entire 2112 side with the story.
Great stuff.

EDT: They are STILL playing Rush on Deep Tracks (Ch 27)
