    Neil Peart RIP

    One of the greatest drummers has gone:

    Damn!

    I learned to play the drums, aspiring to the drum gods: Buddy Rich, John Bonham, and Neil Peart. There are many other greats.

    Peart was also a fantastic lyricist.

    One of the heroes of my youth is gone.

    Sad day.

    My wife just told me this sad news. There are no words for how influential the music of Rush has been in my life, going back to my teens and once providing a spark of brilliance when I was solving a particularly vexing engineering issue.

    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Fuck cancer!!

    His lyrics were what most hooked me on this legendary band. I hope he has a lot of unreleased material. #NewWorldMan

    Damn. I was hoping to see him play live as a bucket list item. His impact on music can't be overstated.

    Perhaps for a moment the words could be restated as "Bye Bye Canadian Pie, the Day the music Died".

    Fuck me I'm weepy as shit. Rush was the first band I really got into. I brought all their albums, memorized their lyrics, saw them a few times in concert, they were basically my touchstone throughout high school.

    Glad to have a place were people understand.

    Thank you for sharing that video. I hadn't seen it previously.
