    Here's a quote from English caricaturist, essayist and parodist Sir Max Beerbohm which I think is quite fitting

    "I have known no man of genius who had not to pay, in some affliction or defect either physical or spiritual, for what the Gods had given him."

    Still hard to take that you are gone.
    Because of you Neil I’m a drummer today. And is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It keeps me sane as I go thru this game of life. Thank you Neil. I love and mis you my brother drummer. You are the best. My heart goes out to your surviving family and all the ones who love you. We all are mourning your passing.
    VEVO has an auto play of many Rush videos. I encourage everyone to turn off their TVs and watch the videos play one after another as I have been doing. It’s comforting to watch the band with some really good shots of the Professor. RIp Neil Peart.....

    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.
