    Saw him play many times and always had trouble taking my eyes off him. A mesmerizing player. One of the all time great rock drummers. RIP Neil. Cancer sucks.

      In my opinion, one of the greatest if not the greatest drummer of all time to me. It is crazy coincidence to me, that my all time greatest drummer alive for the last many years passed away this week and I find out today through another friend who is a drummer because of him. and then tonight I get to see Tool, whose drummer Danny Carey is probably my 2nd favorite drummer ever and now my favorite one alive. Sad loss for the music world, Neil was a legendary lyricist, musician, and drummer like no other. Here is a video of him and Danny from Tool jamming at Stuart Copeland's spot (probably my 3rd favorite).

      RIP NEIL

            Rest In Peace Neil!
            i saw Rush many times when I was in high school. My friends & I wore out the moving pictures album!
            Sorry Stanton, but Neil was the best drummer that I have ever seen, but you are my second favourite.

              Here are pics from my first RUSH show in April of 1975(not my pics however)- KSHE Kite-Fly in Forest Park. Look at how small Neil's kit is and how he uses a case as his seat. These guys became legends in St. Louis when I was in high school. Saw them many times after this - then kinda drifted away. But still love the band and especially how they grew organically across the heartland of US and Canada playing small towns/cities.

                RIP to a Renaissance man. Kind of a “spectrum” guy, but kudos to Alex & Geddy for seeing past the Aspergers and giving Neil the creative outlet he’d never have enjoyed as a stunningly good drummer alone. I was always intrigued by how he travelled between gigs & avoided the usual pitfalls of downtime. It’s an ad, I know, but this was such a nice bit:

                  Always a Carl Palmer guy for flashy prog rock drummers but Neil sure could bring it. Might just be because ELP was so unique.

                    I admit to never being much of a Rush fan, but no one can dispute his position in history as a virtuoso rock drummer.

                      I caught up with an old mate on Sunday who has been a very successful drummer touring Australia and the world with various bands for 3 decades.

                      And I asked him about Neil Peart and he said that he had always greatly admired him and the way he played

                        Keith Spera gets it.
