Given the passing of Neil Peart last week, I’ll probably have a few Rush-related posts in the upcoming days.
The above video contains a particularly insightful interview from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Topics covered include: Neil Peart’s drumming, and (of particular interest to me) his song-writing.
The man interviewed is, like me, a lifelong Rush fan in his fifties. Unlike me, he’s also a musician.
At the 2:20 mark, he says that Rush was one of those bands that, “You either got them or you didn’t; and if you did ‘get them’, you became a lifelong fan.”
Well put. I couldn’t agree more.
