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

Huh. I wonder why.
Because I'm right.

You know for a dude who seems to be incredibly uncomfortable around his fans, it's only natural that he is because we have entire threads dedicated to pronouncing his name, which I have never heard mispronounced in my life

Imagine my surprise when I found this out! The first time I saw Rush live in 1974, I thought his last name was pronounced “Rutsey” and that he didn’t look anything like his picture on the album!

I'm afraid I am guilty of the latter. Let's see long how it takes for me to say Why-Why-Zed.

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'm pretty sure if I ran up to Neil and said "Hello mister capital P plus sign ear icon plus sign capital T", he'd run to the nearest safe space.

He'd run to the nearest safe space if anybody who looked like they remotely knew he was ran up to him.

If you saw Beyond the Lighted Stage then you heard it mispronounced more than once.

Yes for a bunch of so called die hards half the folks interviewed mispronounce it and it's annoying. Tom Cochran mispronounced it in 1994 when they were inducted into the Canadian Hall of Fame.

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

...That's a joke, right?

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...

That’s true. Most people say it the Ancient Sumerian way which is “Nayl-mi Pey-te-haud”
