Check it out below.

Neil Peart Was an Exceptional Musician Who Influenced Countless Drummers, But His Legacy Can Actually Be Summed Up With 4 Words

"Be your own hero". To add to that, we're "nobody's hero", except from what's perceived by other's.

This is one of the first articles I read after hearing the news and it's the best tribute I've read yet.

Don't follow anyone. Be your own hero.

Here's another from an interview posted by MusicRadar here.

Respect can be earned and lost

"There is nothing I would rather have than the respect of other musicians for what I do, but respect is something you have to earn continually. A lot of times people only respect dead musicians because they can't let you down. Everyone has had that experience of being a fan of someone who suddenly really lets you down.

"As a musician it's my responsibility to get better and if people are admiring the work I do then that's even more inspiration to improve and to take it up a notch. The hunger for improvement and exploration and all that really does derive from the acclaim. I know people give me that respect so I feel I have to earn it."
