Now that it looks like Neil is officially " retired", was wondering if young drummers appreciate what he's brought to the world of rock drumming in his 40 + years?

He's only been retired a year. I know people's attention spans are shorter now but don't you think it's a bit soon to be asking that question? :P

Haha.. true! I'm just curious if drummers from the millennial generation are inspired by his drumming the way they were back in his prime years

I would imagine so due to the plethora of videos, articles and sheer volume of music they've put out over the years. He's still one of the best rock drummers out there, if not the best. As long as there are new up and coming musicians, he should still be influential. However with less people playing instruments compared to the past, it's hard to know how long that will be the case.

Based on other non-Rush music forums I frequent, he is.

Well I think that unless he has physical problems like Phil Collins, then Neil wont be retired for long. Drumming is in his blood

Whether he will ever tour again is another matter but I still think that there is a lot still to come from the Professor

I wouldn't be surprised if Neil never played drums again or at least anywhere outside his house.  I think listeners don't car or know who they are but hardcore musicians will always love good players.

I think Neil will always be held in high regard, as will Rush as a band ... Neil's impact is based on something that young and future musicians will always look back to as influential ..

Plus, he was never a rock star - he was a rock god ... They live forever

Of course, yes, absolutely!
Admiration, techniques, inspiration, reverence and brilliant music will continue for years and years.
It'll cross at least two or three future generations!

I'm not against using electronic percussion if it is an accompaniment to an acoustic set. But just programmable drum machines and no one actually playing any instruments is my point.

I have talked to so many young drummers ( Toronto area ) Trust me kids 16-25 know exactly who he is and are truly inspired by him
Its the same thing with Buddy rich- I play drums but he was way before my time - never knew who the hell was-or was into jazz .
Until i seen him onTV on  carson or the muppets  for the first time  years and years ago I thought he was a freak of  nature what he can do on the drums .Incredible
If you play drums at all -you search things -its a matter of a few clicks and Peart comes up somewhere doing it the way only Peart can do . Masterclass

That would still be considered a drum machine. I think.  :P
