Look everyone. It's over. Been over for almost 4 years.

I get the hard core fandom. I'm a die hard too. Well I was. There comes a point when one just has to move on.

Nope. Vegas Residency 2020. Bank on it.

Nope.  I don't WANNA be POOR...

I think they should replace Neil with any stiff they can find and go out on the road and call it Rush. Utterly overrated.

So overrated that you tell this in almost every post. You seem like an obsessive fanboy who can't get over the fact that Peart is on a well-earned retirement.

I'm thrilled he's retired! Can you imagine how desperate Geddy and Alex were in 1974 that this guy got the gig? I can only imagine what rush would have become with a drummer who plays with actual feel. And writes better than a junior high schooler who just read The Fountainhead.

Yes i am sure that they hated every second of the forty years they played with Peart. If you don't like Neil's drumming it is pretty much impossible for you to like Rush. And if you think he lacks the "feel" then so do Geddy and Alex.

I'm sure it was something they tolerated. It's what most Rush fans have always done. If you think Neil is a great drummer then you must not play with any feel either. Discerning musicians know better.

''Most Rush fans''. I have never met a Rush fan who hates Peart or his drumming. Maybe there are some of those lurking in their mothers basements but any Rush fan with a brain and normal life appreciates huge part of the band that is Neil's drumming.

He has been a black hole of suck for 40 years. His Groove can't hold a candle to a drummer like Phil Rudd. But it's his lyrics that really killed any real chance for super stardom the band had.


Obvious troll. I like AC/DC and Phil Rudd too but you wouldn't want to see him drumming for Rush? It seems like you don't understand what Rush is all about. It isn't about the groove or the "feel".

Rush is Lee, Lifeson and Peart and no-one else. Each of them is a part that cannot be replaced. If you hate one of them you also hate Rush as a whole.

I think there's a couple of posters in this thread who need to develop a keener sense of irony and sarcasm  :eyeroll:

I am sure that most posters get the irony and sarcasm. The point is that this trolling in every Peart-related topic isn't funny. Its boring and ruins any real conversation. Maybe some posters need to come up with new jokes instead.

Sting just announced a residency in Vegas.

Therefore, Rush - with Peart - will announce a residency in Vegas.

Gavin Harrison would be my choice if I thought for one moment Rush should continue without Pearl. I don’t.
