No compromise. That's what I loved about the men in Rush
Many drummer's I loved, but he was my favorite, plus a brilliant lyricist to top it off. Neil worked hard, the band worked hard and they all together were "unique".
You like or you don't, no time to hate, a very noble gentleman has brought joy to many many souls.

He was a great inspiration to everyone. Being the best musician and poet, his work reached so many people on this planet, and will always do so in the music. So I see this as a wake up call, I am either going to go buy a drumkit again, or get a mohawk.

To everybody else out there seeing people who say Peart wasn’t the best drummer ever, or that Rush sucks, just remember that those people are ignorant and be thankful that you aren’t
Neil Peart you will be remembered

Sorry, not the best drummer on Earth. Not as good as Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, Simon Phillips, Chris Coleman, Max Roach, Joe Morello, Mike Portnoy and many others.

I went to see Rush about 15 years ago after Neil beat cancer the first time. It wasn't a great concert, until his drum solo...

Era mucho más que un batería, era sacar sonidos de percusión de donde nadie se pensaba que podían salir. Además con una técnica soberbia. Un Dios.
truth and common sense warrior
Ten times he proved he was the best.

Simply, Neil at the top!!!! No one plays like this, only him...seems that God needs more advanced drum
lessons over there in heaven... wil be missed for long, long time, may be for ever. So sad...young drummers, please begin to learn with this sacred man basis, grooves, dynamics, powerfull and taste performings... I guess would be the best tribute to him..R.I.P. Neil... God bless you.

“I can worship Nature, and that fulfills my need for miracles and beauty. Art gives a spiritual depth to existence -- I can find worlds bigger and deeper than my own in music, paintings, and books. And from my friends and family I receive the highest benediction, emotional contact, and personal affirmation. I can bow before the works of Man, from buildings to babies, and that fulfills my need for wonder. I can believe in the sanctity of Life, and that becomes the Revealed Word, to live my life as I believe it should be, not as I'm told to by self-appointed guides.”
― Neil Peart, The Masked Rider: Cycling in West Africa

BOOM!!! (drop the mic & drumsticks on the floor)

Conner Plays Bass, But Is That All?
He didn't play drums.
He was the drums.
Not abstract art,
He played memoirs that should be crafted in gold.

peart was a very good drummer, now that he's gone does not make him the greatest.

Match grip. Buddy would not approve. He'll have a word with him I'm sure. May not do any good, though. Have to see what Ginger and Carl think.
Rush. Best damn live show you'd ever see. I pity anyone who didn't.

Then how is it Carl Palmer holds every record for open stroke roll, single stroke roll and multiple cadence and Peart isn't even in the top 5 for any of them? Palmer was clocked at more strokes per minute across the kit than any percussionist ever.

Every time I hear Neil Peart's name, I think of this scene from "I Love You, Man".
Peter: Are you ready to get your mind blown?
Zooey: Do it!
Peter: You wanna get some Neil Peart all up in ya?
Zooey: I dunno.
Peter: Well, prepare to be...RUSHIFIED!

10 times ? He was always the best drummer and has inspired 99.9% of any current drummer.
Much respect for Neil , I would say a moment of silence in his memory, but I'm almost certain Neil would prefer a moment of solo.
Rest in Peace Neil. You will be missed.

Neil Peart may be the most influential drummer of all time. I know many will argue the point, but that guy changed the way thousands of musicians and drummers approached music and drumming. Yes, Moon, Bonham, and many others had influence, but for me Peart's style transcended anything before that era. He was a new precedent that thousands aspired to, self included.

How to describe Neil Peart's style to the average person. You take Keith Moon and hit the Quantize button.
