RIP Ghostrider

Recommended Posts

Today we lost Neil Peart to brain cancer.  I always enjoyed Rush and Ghostrider.

I have 6 of his books. I discovered Rush in high school, 2112. He rode all over North America. He said in one of his books that whenever he was close to Rushville, Ohio he always rode through it. Been through there so many times, 664 the roller coaster! This is tough one for me.

RUSH is my exception to the "prog rock sucks" rule. I love Neil's lyrics.

One of the best drummers of all time.  As stated above, a very talented man.  He easily could of went off the deep end after his personal tragedy, but he used it in a positive way. RIP.

Here's a photo I shot many years ago at the AMA museum.  There was an exhibit called "Stars and Bikes".  Neil's bike he rode during Ghostrider and his drums.
