Neil Peart dead from brain cancer
« on: January 13, 2020, 03:33:03 pm »
A universally beloved and worshipped drummer. Talented beyond belief and a profoundly humble man. I met him, Geddy and Alex backstage after a concert in Toronto many years ago. As rich, and famous and huge rockstars as they were, they were just 3 typical Canadians. Down to earth and humble. They talked to me for a few minutes and made their way around the room making sure they talked to everyone before they left.

A sad day for music.

YYZ in Rio when the crowd sang along to an instrumental gives me goosebumps.

RIP Neil.
