Neil Peart dies of brain cancer at 67

The loss of a giant talent. I got into Rush aged 14 and one of the first bands I really "followed"
I am stunned.

I don't know what era that kit is from (I understand that there is a website dedicated to just that subject alone)
I can see a fair bit of Roland digital stuff in amongst the acoustic.
Along with Geddy and Alex (and guest artists) left us a vast legacy of varied music and for that I am eternally grateful.
I am still playing catchup on the back catalogue as I was otherwise occupied after "Test for Echo" and Geddy's solo album "My Favourite Headache"
The mid/late 80's stuff will always have a special place in my memories.

It was a very special moment at Wembley watching Neil playing one of his amazing solos, the platform full of drums, cowbells, triangles and all manor of other percussion mayhem,slowly rotating as he played- totally bonkers!
As lots of other people have mentioned his drumming opened my ears to percussion and rhythm.
I love all the earlier stuff upto Signals, maybe I'll give the later stuff a listen now.
Didacts and Narpets flipping heck...
My boat is named Rocinate after the spaceship in Hemispheres and up until not that long ago my pin number would have been easily guessed!!!!
Genuinely sad at his passing, so many memories, some memories last for ever...
RIP Neil
