My favourite drummer has passed away

Post by SirMustapha » Fri Jan 10, 2020 11:47 pm

Neil Peart, of Rush, dead at 67

I barely have energy to write this, and I think most of you might be aware that I'm a Rush fan. I can't overstate how important and influential these guys have been to me since my teens. I'm gutted and devastated by this.

I mean, over time, I've come to hear lots of drummers that are more relevant and influential, and I've listened to loads and loads of bands and artists that I've come to idolise, but Rush were one of the bands that made me want to make music. I'm so deeply thankful to Neil and his music, and despite him having retired a few years ago, I'm having a hard time coping with his passing.

That is not surprising at all! Without the awesome artists who have come before us, who of us would be doing anything?

Electronic hugs from me. It's all I can do...
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!
