On this Six-Pack episode, Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us Podcast and Dan Miles of the Friends of Dan podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the life and work of Neil Peart and Rush. The impact and breadth of Rush’s musical career is beyond measure, and Neil’s words particularly resonate in the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the world. Oh, plus he’s the Drum God-iest of Drum Gods – a unique talent that elevated what one could do behind the kit and beyond the light stage as a creative force. Who’s the greatest rock drummer ever? C’mon. We all know.
Rush is an eternal brotherhood. Three young to older men that lived a life of philosophical growth, musical exploration, joy, tragedy, and friendship on record and on stage – the real relation. We’re all blessed to have witnessed and have been inspired by it – now and forever. So, join us as we grieve the loss of Neil and praise the work of Rush.
Air drumming highly encouraged, in fact required.
“A planet of playthings
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive.
The stars aren’t aligned
Or the gods are malign.
Blame is better to give than receive.”
