RIP Neil Peart

THE MAN

Professional
Rush was my first concert along with KISS and Mott the Hoople 1975. I was 15 and didn't know much about Rush before that night, but I left thinking for only 3 musicians they were bad ass.

Bionic Poster
I saw them on the Presto tour and immediately elevated Peart beyond my favorite duo of drummers Moon and Bonham to GOAT. On album, he had been a favorite but live took him to the top.

Ten days younger than Jimmy Connors and 35 days older than myself, we have lost a giant far too soon and to the same killer brain cancer that robbed fans of fellow Canadian frontman of The Tragically Hip, Gord Downie.

RIP.
