A Farewell to A Drumming King'



Although He Definitely wouldn't be Basking in this Limelight...

By now, presumably Y'all know about the unfortunate Death of Neil Pearth, one of Rock 'N Roll's Greatest Drummers ever, for which his status for Mwah is elevated by the fact that he was also Rush's lyricist, and a writer to Boot.


While one must wonder if Thee Rhythm Professor' tired of playing is ever growing Signature Drum solo? For which I witness continuously growing in length, stature and complexity over thou Decades. Which reached its zenith in 2015, albeit its roots date back to the mid 1970's, first captured upon Exit Stage Left's epic song YYZ.


As I believe that version was from Rush's final 2015 "R40" 40th Anniversary Concert Tour...

Whilst naturally there will Arse-sumedly never be a consensus upon the All-time Greatest Rush songs, besides most likely Tom Sawyer being Thar De facto Number 1, but Rolling Stone's done a fairly good job assessing twelve of Neil's Best Tracks. Although I'd argue that The Big Money shouldn't have been excluded...


As The Beat goes On...
