    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.

    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!!!

    He didn't play drums. He was the drums. Not abstract art, He played memoirs that should be crafted in gold.

    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. RIP

    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.
