He didn't take crap or lip from anyone and lived by his own rules, to the very end.

Aside from his drumming?  His sense of humor and the way he shared it with Geddy and Alex.  It reminds me a lot of my long-time buddies.

He was the best drummer I have ever seen and as others said, his lyrics made you stay to listen to their songs,  over and over.  :notworthy:

His wisdom, his humbleness, his lyrics, and his humor. I know he didn't see himself in the same light that we see him, but he truly seemed like an all-around great person. I have so much respect for him.
