One of the most revered progressive rock drummers all-time for good reason. Not a meat and potatoes drummer but a hard hitting rhythmatist, an unorthodox, explosive rock drummer with "bebop" chops. Rush was built on his playing style and he also wrote the lyrics in Rush. The band was 3 high school best friends that did everything their way, no music biz. B.S. Poor guy suffered some awful family losses years ago and solitary motorcycling saved him. Wrote a few books about his journeys and how he coped with the pain. He came back to the band after years away riding and searching and toured with Rush again, usually riding his BMW 1200 between shows. If the weather was bad the bike had its own truck on the road. Also had his own BMW mechanic and riding partner out on tour with him. That is how you do BMW riding Rock-star style! Retired from playing a while ago as he couldn't maintain his powerful drumming technique, very physically demanding. Rush and its fans around the world have lost their heart and soul.
