Truer words have never been spoken when it comes to Rush drummer Neil Peart. Peart – passed away January 7th, 2020 at the age of 67 following a three year private battle with brain cancer. One of the greatest drummers in Rock n Roll and music history – is no longer here.
For the most part, Peart was an introvert with a keen eye to the world around him. Like most ‘observers’, Peart was able to put his thoughts into words. Along with writing most of the lyrics for his band Rush, Peart wrote seven books based on his travels.
