About Neal Peart
Neil Ellwood Peart was a Canadian musician, songwriter, and author, best known as the drummer and primary lyricist for the rock band Rush. Peart was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and grew up in Port Dalhousie. After a discouraging stint in England to concentrate on his music, Peart retuned home, where he joined Rush, a Toronto band in mid-1974. They released nineteen studio albums, with ten exceeding a million copies sold in the United States. Billboard ranks the band third for the "most consecutive gold or platinum albums by a rock band".
Known to fans by the nickname 'The Professor', his drumming was renowned for its technical proficiency and his live performances for their exacting nature and stamina. Peart earned numerous awards for his musical performances, including an induction into the Modern Drummer Readers Poll Hall of Fame in 1983, making him the youngest person ever so honoured.
