Yesterday we found out that we lost one of the most prolific, and in my opinion, greatest drummers in rock or otherwise, Neil Peart of Rush. I have always had a respect for Rush and he has always been one of my favorite drummers, even if I’d never say I was a “fan” of the band. Drums have always been the one instrument that can really “wow” me if they’re done right and he did it right, every time. And, he was more than just a drummer, he wrote most of the lyrics for Rush songs and incorporated a lot of musical styles in his repertoire. Here’s Neil in action. Rest in peace, New Guy. Oh yeah, f*** cancer!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
