If you still say "Pert," here's a lesson for you in how to pronounce the RUSH drummer's name that I seriously believe should be a hashtag, put everywhere on the Internet.

P+ 👂+T.

And that's literally it.

But seriously, everyone on here knows it's "Peert."

There needs to be a visual like this for anyone who still says "Pert."

I've known how to say it for much longer than you've been alive. But I'm still pronouncing it "Pert."

Since he’s retired not much reason for people to worry about this.

After 24 years of Rush being my favorite band I'm glad someone finally cleared this up.

If you pronounce Neil's first name similar to the word "kneel", you're doing it wrong. It's actually pronounced as "nail".

You really think someone would do that? Just go on the internet and tell lies?

I always pronounced it “nile”, like the river. But “nail” is the original Latin pronunciation.

Hello! :)

Did you happen to see the note I sent you?


No one says it the Latin way, though, so...

Has he got any more books? I liked the one where he was driving around, making a sort of soundtrack of a trip. He was on a Jeff Buckley trip I think.

I don't read the motorcycling books.
