I've been checking Neil's site on the regular hoping for the final tour story, but it doesn't surprise me that it's taking a while.  Even if he's working on it already, it's gotta be tough knowing that he's writing about the end of an era for himself and the band (even if they still continue working).  Finding the right way to document that is probably not as easy as just reporting the latest jaunt in a series of jaunts.

Ironic twist: spending time being a dad and seeing the world through a child's eyes inspires new Rush lyrics....

Sure he's enjoying the time off.

Also, it's probably very difficult for everyone because of the potential finality of everything. ("Where do I go from here?" "How can I write the last post?")

All things in time.

I saw the mug right away, but I didn't even notice Moist until I'd looked at it maybe three times.

:blink:

Haha! Excellent.


But more directly topical- I've been a drummer for 30 years, and I've always been in awe of Neil. But I've never once looked at his blog, nor read a book of his. I'd like to...but I just haven't gotten around to it.

Does this mean I'm not a True Rush Fan?

You MUST read Masked Rider and Roadshow, the latter gives you the best insight to the band. Good reads.

Oh no, and here I thought you really liked the band! ;)

Roadshow is a very interesting read.  It tells you a lot about what touring is like for Neil, and helps you understand why he is wary of fans who overstep boundaries in trying to meet their idols.  Ghost Rider is good if you'd like to know about the emotional turmoil he dealt with after his personal tragedies.  His blog entries are really only if you're interested in learning about Neil himself, and the everyday things that interest him.

OK, I'll just say it: despite his amazing percussion prowess, his blogs, and his books... Neil is still a DICK. :D

I read one of neil's books once - he rides a bike through africa. moral of the story, I think, was that neil peart is smarter and more athletic than all of us.

I'm not on any other music/band forums. No need to get upset, though. It's just my opinion. And trust me, right now, that opinion is shared by many.

If anyone is upset it sounds like you.
