Thanks for posting this thoughtful retrospective on Neil's inimitable playing and expansive career. I started drumming back in 1984, and he was among my formative influences. Few drummers have matched his unwavering devotion to excellence. And just when you thought he had reached the pinnacle of his powers, he'd evolve in a manner that revealed a limitless supply of talent and creativity. I'm inexpressibly thankful for the impressive body of work he bestowed upon us.
