    Sad day for music...what a talent. He definitely brought the drums to front and center in rock 'n roll music.

    Read a couple of his moto-travel books and loved them. That is how I learned he was a musician, I had never heard of him or Rush. Imagine that.

    Crushing news. I think I will read again his wonderful book 'Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road' while tilting a wee dram of 'The Macallan' in his honour.

    I strongly second that idea, and will do the same. That is a great book, and from reading you can tell he was a great person.

    I watched "Red Sector A" after I heard the news yesterday.

    A very sad day.

    I just posted a letter to the Editor of BMWON asking that a future edition be a memorial issue for NP. In most of his books and videos, He has been an ambassador to the brand.
