Bubba's Big 6-0 Birthday Recap
Throughout the day, Twitter and Facebook lit up with birthday wishes for Neil Peart's 60th birthday. Friends, fans, websites (this one included), colleagues, and others from around the world wished the professor well.
After a successful show in Pittsburgh with Rush last night, Neil had a day off to do whatever he wanted (which is how all birthdays should be). Next show is tomorrow in Indianapolis, Indiana.
