RIP Neil Peart

I didn’t know Peart was the primary lyric writer for Rush.

Flags at half staff in the Great White North?

I was friends and corresponded with Neil ever since the mid 90’s when it was just email and letters. He sent me an autographed copy of his book Raindance Over The Rockies many years ago. He had only 100 editions printed for friends and family.

One of the greatest percussionists the world has even known, tremendous lyricist, great philosophical thinker along my line of thought and an even better person.

A true Renaissance man.

The world lost a hero.

“This moment may be brief but it can be so bright” - Neil Peart

And so it was.

Res In Peace my friend. You earned it.
