Neil Peart News Update - May 29, 2017

When Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee inducted Yes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7, 2017, it was the first time we'd seen members of Rush on a stage since the 2015 R40 tour. And while I've mostly been content to think of the the band enjoying their well-earned retirement, seeing Alex and Geddy playing music again reminded me of how much I miss he band. 

It's still too soon to say what the third act will look like for the members of Rush. Even if I miss them in the concert halls, I'll always be happy that they gave us 41 years of amazing music. And if Rush is done with the large scale tours that took them around the world, I still don't think it's the last we've heard (or seen) of the band.

As for Peart, I don't expect to see him on the stage any time soon. I do think he'll continue to write books and articles. In fact, last month we found out that he's working with author Kevin J. Anderson on a Clockwork Lives graphic novel.

So, you might be asking yourself what all this means for this website? It is, after all, called Neil Peart News.

One change is that the blog you're reading now (Neil Peart - The Latest News) will mostly go dormant as a news feed. (It's actually been dormant since 2016.) Instead, I'll continue to post news updates and to these social sites:

Beyond news updates, one of the goals of this site has always been to provide in-depth information about Peart's work, life, and drums. In the past few years, I've published new sections on the history of Peart's drum kits, a timeline of his early life, and a look at his drumming influences. As time allows, I'll continue to add these types of features to the site. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see.

As always, thanks for reading!
