Neal Peart Rest in Peace

One of the greatest drummers out there. Great lyricist. Great Canadian. And by all reports, a great human being. Died of brain cancer earlier this week.

I had “Hemispheres” playing in the vehicle a few days ago. What a ridiculously good album.

I saw them in San Antonio for “Hold your fire” and again a few years later for “Test for Echo”

They played for hours, neither tour had an opening band… absolutely brilliant…

a great drummer and an even better poet

Like @BlackWolf, I’ve been listening through some Rush songs and up came “Witch Hunt”. That was always a favorite of mine to play, so when I get home later tonight, I’ll be applying a copius amount of volume to the guitar amplifier and will have a go. The drums are fantastic on the track, and I like how they’re panned in the mix.

I can’t pretend I like Rush but he was a great drummer and talented guy.

Rest in Peace
