And being a Neil Peart thread I'd just like to say that I love Neil's work and have done for years now! I have just recently gotten the Snakes and Arrows CD and am blown away by it (no wonder it won MD best recorded album of 2008!)
I haven't yet been back through this thread but will do now.
Take it easy,
There's some refreshing news! Yea, I was pretty sure I had heard the quote before and thought it was funny, in a strange sort of way, that this quote would be on a bumper sticker with N. Peart on it. Though, I can definitely see NP using the quote during ANYTHING he shares about drums/drum technique.
Absolutely agree about S&A. The guy just has "it". And some people just don't get "it".
Thanks, Shauno! It's nice to hear a real positive take on Neil Peart. It seems to get lost in the nay-sayers and non-admires.
