Re: Neil Peart
Neil has evolved over the years so, I would recommend starting at the beginning. Fly By Night is the second Rush album and the first album with Neil. You will hear many of his signature rhythms on this album.
Many people are turned off by the style of music or Geddy Lee's vocals. Even if that's not your cup of tea, it's worth spending some time listening to the various Rush albums to hear the magic that is in that guys hands.
