One of the greatest, if not the greatest of all time.
Maybe the best rock drummer of all time. He had brain cancer.
Maybe the best rock drummer of all time.
A very impressive drummer indeed. Saw him live a few times, don't plan on going to see him dead RIP NP
Saw and partied with Rush a few times way back in the day.
Power trios don't exist without a rock solid rhythm section.
Never really knew Neil but as fellow bassists Geddy and I would at least wave at each other across a crowded room.
(Blew out my right index finger back in the 80s and haven't played professionally since.)
Damn, I feel old right now.😕
I know, so do I. The 70s had the best rock!
I must confess, I would have never guessed you as a Rush fan, and in no way meant as an insult.
I was a teenager in the later 70s and love 70s rock. I was somewhat of a wild child (not too wild but wild enough) lol....
You Rock on Girl !
My screen name is from the Uriah Heep song Lady in Black.
Damn, you continue to impress
rock on !
I vote for the 60s (but I'm an old fart.)
The first songs I learned to play were G L O R I A and Little Latin Lupe Lou.
Neil was one of the best! He will be very missed.
He was great.
Thanks for that Greg I watched it a few times and remembered my youth.
What a bummer. I had hopes of seeing Neil doing educational videos, tribute albums, etc. 67 is too young.
I hope all the videos of Neil are educational enough to inspire the next generation.
Damn what a loss. One of my very favorite bands. NO ONE has a tighter sound than Rush —hands down. This is a huge bummer,,, love Rush.
From Rolling Stone:
Peart was a drummer’s drummer, beloved by his peers; he won prizes in Modern Drummer’s annual readers’ poll 38 times, and was a formative influence on countless young players. “His power, precision, and composition was incomparable,” Dave Grohl said in a statement released Friday. “He was called ‘The Professor’ for a reason: We all learned from him.”
“Neil is the most air-drummed-to drummer of all time,” former Police drummer Stewart Copeland told Rolling Stone in 2015. “Neil pushes that band, which has a lot of musicality, a lot of ideas crammed into every eight bars — but he keeps the throb, which is the important thing. And he can do that while doing all kinds of cool shit.”
