Chris Welch, The History of Rock, 1984
NEIL PEART is one of rocks show drummers, whose uncompromising personality matches his single-minded dedication to music. As one-third of Canadas Rush, Neil made a tremendous contribution to their success, replacing original drummer John Rutsey in 1974. He not only brought considerable power to the percussion department, but he also gave the band a new sense of direction.
