I was really sad and still am when I first heard of his passingI I guess we are all mortal after all. I'll be 63 this December so I'm starting to see the light. Not that light, the Ghost Whisperer. Glad I got to see him in 1984 at the Hollywood Sportatorium here in Florida. Life goes fast. Enjoy every minute of it. GOD BLESS ROCK AND ROLL AND NEIL PEART FOR EVER!

There is fast, and then there is accurate. If Neil were a gun he would drop a couple of hundred rounds a minute, center mass at a 1000 yards with a cross wind.

Neil was definitely one of the greatest rock drummers of all time. Also worth mentioning as some of the best rock drummers: (In my opinion) Mick Fleetwood, Jeff Porcaro, Dave Grohl, and Stewart Copeland.

Only because Buddy wasn't around........."Gene Krupa. He said Buddy Rich was, ‘the greatest drummer ever to have drawn breath.’ Those are fightin’ words, no question, and that was maybe 50 years ago, but I believe Gene was correct. It’s not just Buddy’s natural musicality, soloist’s instinct, and the ears of a dancer. He had those, all right, but chief among his gifts was those hands. It's not ‘fan talk,’ because I never really was a Buddy Rich ‘fan. Buddy was truly the master of everything. Yes, there are plenty of people who can swing and rock those sticks, no question - but here we have a blend of a great gift, a life devoted unstintingly to its perfection, and audiences to appreciate it along the way.
We shall not pass that way again.
Neal Peart, (RIP) Nov, 2 2017 Who's gonna argue with him?

Two men I knew were legendary drummers before I ever knew their songs:
Neil Peart & John Bonham. 😔💔😔
I like to think they’re in another realm having an eternal drum-off.
Rest Easy, Gentlemen. 🤘🏻🤘🏻

Hey may have been the best technical drum player, but he had no feel. he was a robot on the kit so in my opinion he was never the best drummer.

Honestly I hate drum solos it's just showing off, Neil's true genius was how he incorporated his technique into Rush's songs, that says enough

I have seen just a few minutes of him drumming, but it is evident that this guy was one of the best in his profession. Rest in peace, Neil.

What defined Neil as one of the greatest drummers of all time....not his technical abilities,. Not his lightening fast stick technique.... not the most common elements that make a great drummer. Now obviously I'm not a drummer but I listened to a number of the greats..Baker Moon Bonham Copeland etc and Neil had one unique quality which in my opinion not many drummers have...he was a true student of the art always searching for new techniques to incorporate into his repertoire. He travelled the world and learned from different countries and different styles. He was a composer of music. His solos were orchestrated and rehearsed to perfection. Maybe one might think that to be a true great you need to improvise and that solos should be somewhat random. But Neil was a perfectionist. He wanted to nail every song every solo. He pushed himself and his physical limits to create perfection and he paid dearly. He was a true professional a professor of the art. A master! RIP Neil 🙏🙏🙏

Neil was unchallenged as the greatest drummer to ever breathe. He constantly re-invented the craft and then took it to yet another insane level. Man, just thank you for doing it Neil. Can't remember how many times I 'air drummed' to a Rush song.

what would be the best 'recorded' example of his drumming chops?
the first part of 'bytor and the snow dog' is one that comes to mine... but i only listen to the same 3 rush albums the whole time and ive never really ventured much out side of them, mainly because there are so many albums its hard to know where to start. some real rush fans out there might be able to fill me in?

Every part Neil played was a masterpiece. Many have aspired to be him, and imitated his work over the years, but few could ever comprehend his thought process and ingenuity which has resulted in an everlasting legacy of superb craftsmanship.

I agree Mr Peart was the best drummer of all times. At least to my knowledge. But don't forget his predecessor John Rutsey, who was brilliant also. Listen to a song like "Working Man" and you know what I mean.
Do you think they play drums on Heaven?
That will be a party! !!

I love Bonham's groove and sound, but you cannot escape the technical precision and sheer percussion mastery of Peart. I hear Moon, Krupa, and Buddy Rich all over his playing, but you know it's distinctly Peart.
