Rest in piece to your dear neighbour @Ahhh Girl , and our thoughts to his family heart

And rest in piece to Neil Peart, legendary drummer of Rush. I have never been particularly fond of their music, but Peart's talent, originality and inspiration on thousands of young drummers will not be forgotten apple01

Oh my. Coincidentally, my band and I are actually playing 'New World Man' by Rush tomorrow at my bandmate's graduation party; perhaps I should dedicate it to Peart.

You should do that! (Politically, he was a self-described "compassionate libertarian" - your kinda guy! ahdn_john_08_gif)

This is a huge loss, of a remarkable individual, and I'm gonna watch old Yotube videos for the next hour+ , "2112" and "Xanadu" and others. It's still mindblowing how three guys could create such a huge SOUND on wax, and reproduce it over and over again live, verbatim. It's a joy just watching their hands! Watching Peart play a difficult extended part in "Xanadu", with like a half-bar rest in the middle; and instead of resting, he flips his stick skyward and catches it just in time! And repeats the trick when the part is repeated. Whatta showman! a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Again, a huge loss, for music and literature and Canada and the world.

RIP Neil Peart; the afterlife just got a lot more thunderous.

My wife and I watched a Rush documentary Tuesday, not knowing of course that he died that day.

Was it the "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage" documentary?

That's an amazing, celebratory doc - I was astonished by the appearance of that old doc footage of young Alex talking with his parents, and of the pre-Neil 1974 high school show (weird that they announce a Beatles song, and come up with..."Bad Boy ")

R.I.P Neil Pert and R.I.P Rocky Johnson. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.
