RIP Neil. Rush fan here since the late 70’s. I believe my older brother still has our Rush and Fly by night records.

The best of the best.
If you get a chance, he produced (and played on some track) 2 volumes of Buddy Rich songs called "Burning For Buddy"........it’s great! He was an all-around great drummer and these are big band tracks that shows off some really talented drummers.

Neil was Born of humble beginnings in THE HAMMER and became a Legendary Drummer, Lyricist, Motorcyclist and a Member of the Order of Canada. (Our Highest Civilian Award) and FINALLY a Member of the R&R Hall of Fame.
Incredible life and career.
One of the truly great Canadians 🇨🇦 is gone.

This was really shocking and sad news today ... R.I.P. 🙏

Here he is with Geddy and Alex playing for 450,000 at TORONTO ROCKS...


...and a video I took of a bit of one of his solos at the Air Canada Centre show in 2012.

Props to CBS and FOX for playing RUSH during the Divisional Playoff Games.
No comments, no preamble...just RUSH songs.
It's amazing the scope and appreciation this Trio has.

R.I.P. Neil 🥁

...and how about some...
