An unfathomable 30 years ago, only a week after graduating high school, I had the privilege of seeing Rush perform live. The show was great, and I remember being in awe of Neil Peart's amazing drum skills. A few months later, as I began college, one of my freshman English papers was a dissection of "The Trees," which was extremely relevant, as we were watching the world change before our eyes. Neil was both the heart and should of the band --- the heart with his incredible drumming, and soul with his remarkable lyrics. Despite the impact on the 18yo self, I wasn't a lifelong super fan, but I always held a deep respect for their musicianship and the legacy that they built.

R.I.P. Neil Peart (1952-2020).
