    Adventures with Neil Peart

    A friend of mine sent me this, knowing that I'm both a BMW rider and a Rush fan.

    I wish I was the author.

    Great story, wish I could have that kind of tale to tell.

    So all I have to do is write something that inspires a hit song....

    Awesome read. Thanks for sharing. Think I'm going to pick up a copy of "Ghost Rider".

    I just finished watching a DVD titled "Rush: R30" from a few years ago. I was totally blown away (again) by Neil's work.

    Just finishing up "Roadshow." Good read. Especially for Rush/BMW fans.

    I've read both Ghost Rider and Roadshow. Neil's willingness to share helped me to feel that I was right there with him. He also gave me a lot to think about. My only disappointment was the lack of pictures in Roadshow. This post has remedied that. I've "favorite placed" it and will look at it often. I started getting to know Neil and Michael in Roadshow and now - thanks to you - I've been able to take a visual virtual ride with them. And WV is incredibly beautiful. Thanks for sharing. It's much appreciated, Richard.

    If you talk to Neil again, please tell him that his books not only entertain, but help others heal. His experiences, thoughts and lyrics go straight to the heart.

    Great story. Made my morning. Think I will put in some Rush for shower and shave time.

    I have followed Rush and in particular, Neil's carrer for many years. I have a tribute album to Buddy Rich, which Neil produced and it's an amazing piece. (Burnning for Buddy)
    Neil has the Mida's touch for drumming, writting and bikes. Some of us have the enema touch for just about everything. What ever we touch turns to...(you know)

    How many drummers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    10 - One to screw it in and 9 more to say that Neil Peart could do it better.
