RIP Neil Peart of Rush

Recommended Posts

Very hard to believe and I didn't when I first heard the news today. He died of brain cancer this past Tuesday.Tragic life he lead despite all the huge success. He was a my biggest mentor in high school right from '77 -' 82 and beyond. Very, very sad day today for drummers,  musicians and fans all over the world. Leaves behind a second wife and second very young daughter.

Oh, that's a shame. He was a nice guy. I met him a bunch of times years back. Usually while riding my motorcycle. I'd pull in to the post office parking lot on my stinky Honda 500 or 750 and park next to him on his killer BMW 1100 with all the hardware. He'd tell me about his latest trip across Tunisia or wherever, and he was always super nice. He loved to talk about motorcycles. I was never much of a Rush fan so we never talked about music. Go figure.

Glad I got to see him once at least.
