Neil Peart’s impact on drumming and music may never be matched in this lifetime. He was a hero. He was a warrior. He was a drum god who proved perfection night after night on stage. He was Rush’s main lyricist, ten citing from his literary obsession. He rode his motorcycle across country many times and documented in book form.
Unfortunately, he passed away last week at the age 67 following a quiet three and a half year brain cancer battle. Not many people knew he was sick. Many had hoped for a future Rush reunion following Peart’s retirement in 2015.
Tributes have been pouring in since Friday’s shocking revelation. Buddy Iahn hosts the show solo and guestless as he shares his thoughts on the drumming legend’s impact on the world.
