    Default Neil Peart

    I recently took up drumming to relax and beat something up...lol, this guy is amazing!!!
    They are an amazing 3 piece canadian band, but Peart is outstanding, his solo starts at around the 3:20 mark.

    They are amazing. What's even more amazing is that they were beat out by the likes of LL Cool J and Donna Summer for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    I saw an interesting rocumentary about Rush a few days ago. If you get a chance to watch it, it's quite good.

    What band brought Rush out on tour when they were a struggling up-n-coming band?

    That's right, the Hottest Band in the World

    They may have been up and coming, but they were never struggling!

    The band member from Rush said they were ready to give up. So I think they believed it too.

    It's in the documentary, Jack. I watched it.

    They wanted to do their type of music, the more ethereal stuff like the songs on "Caress of Steel", while the record label wanted them to keep churning out the radio-friendly tunes like "Fly by Night". The band was ready to give it all up rather than make music they weren't really interested in. Luckily for them "All the World's a Stage" was a success, and the rest is history.

    But they were sure the "Caress of Steel" tour was their last tour.
