Replace the f***er and move on. His drumming is replaceable and his lyrics sucked.

Well Al & Ged wrote a few lines early on so can they add 'lyricist' to their former job description

Former drummer/percussionist, Rush might've been enough

but hey if you got something to shout about..

Someone who thinks his drumming all flash and no feel. Someone who is embarrassed when I read his lyrics. Someone who's eating lasagna and watching Field of Dreams and posting during a commercial break. Someone who has a gig in the morning for 3000 people. Someone who hasn't loaded his gear for that yet.


That's about it.

Who are you???

I agree.  It makes it sound like the band still exists without him in it.  To be accurate, it should read, "drummer of the former band "Rush."  I know, it hurts to say that, but unfortunately, it is true.

Either that or Neil doesn't care if they carry on without him or not. Which I hope he doesn't feel like.

Why should the miserable bastard get to have his cake and eat it too? At this point they should go full Van Halen/ Sharon Osborne on him. Re-release the entire catalogue with his pictures all removed, and re-record the drum tracks.

But they won't.....they're too Canadian.
