Neil Peart 1952-2020
Oh Boy, where should I start?
Moving Pictures is the best drum album EVER!
I have never heard a drum take that, in my humbled opinion
was more perfect than Neil's Tom Sawyer. The Hertas used
on the mini solo on this song and in YYZ became a trademark
and the source that hordes of drummers are imitating to this
If this is not enough, I never got to say it to you in person, Mr.
Peart but you are one of the reasons that made me want to
be a drummer when I was under ten years old. Quite an
influence. Thank you, Thank you, Thank YOU!
You experience great success professionally yet got to
experience the grievance of losing a child and a spouse.
I hope you are at peace at long last.
Neil Peart
