Thread: Neil Peart RIP

    One of my favorite songs of all time. Such HUGE sound from a three man band. Went to sleep at night many a night with "A Farewell to Kings" playing in my headphones. The world will never be the same.

    Met my best friend, 35 years and counting, because I had a Rush logo drawn on my Pee-Chee folder in Driver's Ed class. He and I saw them every tour since here in Vegas, and most tours traveled to see them again at least once - San Diego, Phoenix, Portland, Chicago. A Rush concert was one of the few places I've ever felt I really belonged.

    Peart wrote books, too. "Masked Rider" is about bicycling in Africa. "Ghost Rider" is about a motorcycle trip around North America following the deaths of his daughter and wife. There are others. If you're a fan they're worth a read.

    Without question Rush had the most technical skill of any band I've ever seen in concert. I saw them in Omaha in 1981 and I saw them in Texas in 1984 actually in the Astrodome. I was amazed at how well they had their sound adjusted for that building.

    I kind of quit following them after Grace Under Pressure but I saw some of their videos on YouTube of some of their more recent tours and I felt kind of bad because you could tell that Geddy Lee's voice was going

    Without question, one of the finest rock drummers to ever sit behind a kit.

    Rest In Peace, Neil- thanks for the music and the memories.
