RIP Neil Peart
He and his bandmates have given us some great music. I know what I’ll be listening to this weekend.
I’ll be listening to 2112, A Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres. Also Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures.
Farewell to a king!
That’s too bad, but I can’t listen to Rush. And, I’m a drummer.
And Fly By Night.
One of several people that influenced my musical preferences through my younger years. I can remember listing to some of his drum solos for various albums, especially live recordings, over, and over, and over and over…magical.
Will be greatly missed. But always treasured.
Ditto. But I respect the art.
Love early Rush but after Permanent Waves became too self important for my taste. Sadly as a 67 year old I am seeing the passing of too many Artists that influenced my love of music.
Terrible terrible news. Technically inventive drummer, thoughtful lyricist, shy and humble man. Short retirement for him. Very very sad
What an amazing human being and wow, did he ever suffer through his life.
“When I heard that you were gone I felt a shadow cross my heart …”
He was the best.
Just listening to “Afterimage” on repeat.
“Suddenly you were gone, from all the lives you left your mark upon”
One of the greatest drummers of all time, in any genre.
Terrible battle with cancer, rest easy now.
Will be missed
Pratt’s work speaks for itself.
NBC and CBS Sports both included Rush in the bumper rotation during their coverage of the NFL today. A nice gesture.
Indeed. Thanks for keeping me up to date. Since I live in the Netherlands it nice to be knowing what is going on.
