Better Beer....from Territories. Nice!
I loved how Rush fans would name their boots interesting names. It's one of thing that made Rush fans unique. You do know your Rush.
We're a wild bunch
I was not a Kiss fan until recently but Criss's work on 'Nothing to Lose' and 'Strutter' was rock and roll drumming as it should be. 1974-1975 live are great examples.
Bun E. Carlos was also very underrated, His drumming on 'Oh Candy' live was mind blowing.
I read this afternoon that Mr. Peart stated he was still taking lessons as recently as 2012. HUMBLE GENIUS!
RIP. Rush. So much sound from 3 guys. Legend
I think a tour with the survivors and Portnoy is inevitable. They won't call it Rush, but that doesn't stop them from playing Rush. That will be a must see. I'm guessing R50 at the latest.

Subdivisions.....my favorite song. Not sure why. Has special meaning to me
Drove from IA to CA last two days. Listened to a Cheap Trick CD somewhere between Flagstaff and Kingman.
As with the Queen dude, more popular in death than life
Disagree. He was the absolute best and everyone knew it. So did he.
Live at Budokan is as good as music gets. Phenomenal album.
This is very far off base. He was incredibly highly regarded in life, and all of the memorials are a logical response to the loss of an icon.
There weren't many drummers, if any at all, that were more highly respected throughout his lifetime than Neil Peart. John Bonham is the only other drummer that I can think of that received the level of adulation that Peart did while alive.
Edit - Maybe Keith Moon, who was incidentally a complete hack of a drummer compared to Peart or Bonham. Most good high school drummers could play anything Moon brought to the table. He was high energy, funny, and entertaining, but as far as talent, he wouldn't qualify as a Top 250 drummer in the history of music.
This album, Signals, is where I checked out as a fan. For me, this album just didn't have the level of song writing as previous albums. And I think it's where Geddy started adding a lot of keyboards.
Can't disagree with that. This was kind of the jumping off point for me as well now that I think about it. Just still liked that song
Rush fans will love this...
Can't stop watching Rush stuff. I absolutely love these guys. Their depth cannot be put into words. Only Neil could do that.
God bless the Rush family.
Love that this thread is still going. RIP the professor.
Tough disease. Wouldn't wish it on my worse enemy.
Can't stop listening. Stuck on The Necromancer...
I think I'm going BALD!
Not that big a deal, you save on haircuts, it’s a lot cooler temperature wise with no hair. I actually don’t miss it. I do have some but I cut it boot camp style.
It's a Rush song.
Oh my bad, don’t listen to that type of music.
Breakout the Boxcar Willie. It's all good. This is just a thread dedicated to the world's greatest rock drummer.
I know, he in the top 3, you ever hear of buddy rich?
Neil heard of him.
I have been watching Buddy Rich all week. I used to play drums back in High School
Neil wouldn’t mind tossin Gene Krupa in this drummer bunch
Did you not read the thread or pay attention?
I'm a little late to the game, but RIP Neil.
I was never a big Rush fan (Geddy's voice didn't do it for me), but I have a great deal of respect for what they've accomplished. I love the lyrics for "Limelight", especially this revealing classic line:
Living in a fisheye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can't pretend a stranger
Is a long awaited friend
I'm a drummer, introvert, and a cyclist so I have been a big fan of Neil's. A few months ago I read his book "The Masked Rider: Cycling in West Africa", where he chronicled his bicycle tour in Cameroon. The book really reveals how intelligent and how much of a deep thinker he was.
I know it's been some time since I posted these links, but there are some stuff still linking.

I've been listening to Rush nonstop since Neil's passing. Then again, Rush and Floyd is almost all I've listened to for decades.
