That was an Amazing vid. I look up to him not just as a drummer but as a person. Because of in 1997 10 years ago...was the tragic loss of his daughter and wife from a car accident and cancer. He took his time away from music and his drums and then he came back as a better person and played his drums better too! Rush became the greatest band they are today.

I'd be interested in reading Neil's books. Anyone here read them, and if so, what are they like?
I don't know what I'm talking about!
