I still have a YYZ luggage tag with my Moving Pictures CD.
Not perhaps. Was. Without question.
Perhaps the best drummer we have ever seen
X2 :thumbup:Oh well, crap.
He was very talented.
Rush was (and it is) one of my favorite bands.
I play Tom Sawyer & Limelight nearly everyday in whatever car I'm driving...but playing it in the Corrado makes me feel like I've gone back in time.
My Passat’s plate is 893 YYZ, total coincidence but I’m never getting rid of it! I knew the band was done but knowing that he’s truly gone is a hard thing to wrap my head around. We should all hope to be as passionate and kind.I still have a YYZ luggage tag with my Moving Pictures CD.
I never liked Rush, but Neil, Alex and Geddy are three of the most talented musicians ever to walk the earth.My high schools drumline worshiped RUSH and I never got it until like 10 years ago when I watched the documentary and I was like wow every person in the band was excellent at what they do.
Lifelong drummer here and yeah, there are a ton of them. Neil was the biggest musical influence in my life, and he invented a style of rock / prog drumming that millions have imitated. But there is a huge list of drummers that are on or beyond his level. There is no GOAT, there are simply a group of guys operating at a very high level that Neil was obviously a part of. I love Rush (up to Moving Pictures), and have probably played more of their music than anyone else's. Friday was the first time I have ever cried over a "celebrity" death. If you want to hear other great drummers, start with:The only rock drummers I can think of that were even close to him are possibly Terry Bozzio or Bun E. Carlos. Jazz? I suppose Buddy Rich and Lenny White. Maybe Max Roach too, though I’m not overly familiar with him. Anyone else?
