  • I love Bonham's groove and sound, but you cannot escape the technical precision and sheer percussion mastery of Peart. I hear Moon, Krupa, and Buddy Rich all over his playing, but you know it's distinctly Peart.

  • i grew up in Pt.Dalhousie in St.Catharines during the 60s.. same age..same time period.. went to the same school with Neil..followed him around in the local bands he was in(The Majority,Jr Flood Doc Savage etc).. and later on became a drummer myself and we were both drummers in different bands ( but known to each other).. hung out some at TastyTreat..downing burgers and cokes and talking music for hours on end...he then got in with Starlord (local band) and THEN quit to go to Toronto to get in with some band called "Rush"..a friend replaced him.. and i replaced the friend for a short period when he broke his arm... as i did also Neil in Doc Savage when he left them too... and later in 1973,i replaced him in an act called Westfauster .... seemed as if i was constantly following him when he left something... we knew each other not as close dear friends,but as "colleagues" for a brief time during that period of the early 70s..i then followed his career while pursuing my own as a musician/music artist in later years BUT.. i knew the man during those early beginnings.. and hold dear ALL those memories....because sometimes, fond memories are ALL that remains

  • Mr. Peart influenced every part of my life. Not just a monster musician/percussionist; would have been extraordinary at anything. He possessed a high moral compass, voracious appetite for knowledge and lived by a ridged set of quality and ethical standards. Unfairly, he also endured some of the darkest times a human being can face, but persevered with grace and dignity coming back out on top of his craft and life again in the end. This man was a warrior. Prayers to family and friends.

  • The Grammys should hang their collective heads in shame for not paying tribute to Neil Peart last night like they did for Nipsey Hussle. At least Tool was good enough to pay homage to The Professor in their acceptance speech. Anyway, I know The Juno Awards ceremony on March 15 (Canadian version of the Grammys) will make it right for Neil.

    Bryan DesjardinsBryan Desjardins26 days ago
    • You are so right. No offense to Nipsey, but Neil Peart was one of the best ever and did it for multiple decades. He deserved a much more significant tribute.

  • I don't care what haters say. Neil Peart will forever be in my heart as the best drummer ever! Being the son of a Rush fan I grew up listening to his chops. I had no choice. It was one of the best presents my father could have given me. May he RIP, and may the Lord remember him in the last day! May we yet share many moments in Paradise! I'm gonna ask for lessons, so be ready...

  • 3:51, baby! I saw him do this in person, a clear view with binoculars trained right down on him, on November 9, 1982. One of the best days of my life. That time he did triplets on each of the high toms as he went up and down. On Exit Stage Left, I could never discern whether these were triplets or not.
