Don't know who that is, but I just saw a pic of Peart on Facebook and he was looking a lot like Kevin Spacey.
I'm not a Rush fan (can't stand Geddy Lee's voice), but Neil Peart was an incredible drummer and seemed like a really nice guy.
I recall his personal, hand-written letter published in Kerrang on paper headed 'From the Desk of Neil Peart'. It basically said: Just because I'm a famous musician doesn't mean I should want to have anything to do with any of you so leave me the fuck alone'. Or something like that. It was anti-fan. Quite funny really.
Late 60’s a singer mate of mine was clothes shopping in Carnaby Street with the rest of his drummerless band. He got chatting to a young guy in overalls painting one of the shop fronts. As chance would have it he was a drummer in need of a gig and subsequently joined the band. Until he had to go back to Canada. He was of course the deceased for whom this thread tolls.
