254 – Neil Peart Tribute: Jason Sutter, Peter Erskine, Ed Toth, Josh Birkhimer, Scot Corey, Lee Kelley and Zack Albetta Share Stories and Thoughts About Neil
Wherever Neil Peart ranks in your list of drumming greats, it’s safe to say that he has influenced more drummers and musicians than just about any other drummer in modern history. The ripple effect of his passing can be felt across the drumming community in a way not experienced since Buddy or John left us.
Neil not only inspired many to pickup the sticks, he made it made it cool to be smart and well read. He made us want to ride our bikes, write lyrics, go on hikes, use big words unabashedly and pursue all things with integrity. Many of us ask ourselves, “What’s the most excellent thing I can do today?” That’s what Neil asked himself every day.
