Rip Pete Dye:sadbanana:

 

Many years ago I worked for a guy who was an avid golfer and took a trip to play Sawgrass.  The first thing he said to me when he came back was "Pete Dye is an a**hole!"

67.

"Neil is the most air-drummed-to drummer of all time,” former Police drummer Stewart Copeland told Rolling Stone in 2015. “Neil pushes that band, which has a lot of musicality, a lot of ideas crammed into every eight bars — but he keeps the throb, which is the important thing. And he can do that while doing all kinds of cool ####.”

RIP Neil.

One of the top 5 influential drummers in my early days of learning, and still to this day. My oldest son is a drummer and learned YYZ in drum lessons (well, didn't play it perfectly, of course. He was only 12 at the time. But still, just trying to play that is a feat).  So Neil influenced TWO generations of drummers in my family.

And he was a smart, thoughtful guy. Big loss today for Rush fans for sure.

Wow.  RIP Neil.  One of the best rock drummers of all time, and and a very intelligent and nice guy.

Going to have to pay my respects.......Rush will be played all weekend.

I encourage people to go on YouTube and listen to "YYZ" or "La Villa Strangiato" with Neil isolated.  You will be amazed by how good Neil was.

All celebrity deaths are sad, but losing Neil hurts more than most. :(

I honestly didn’t realize he was so ill - guess that was part of his nature to be so private. Which made his autobiography a few years back such a revelation.

Also horribly ironic that one of the brightest minds in pop/rock history succumbs to brain cancer.

There was no bigger band to me than Rush when I was a kid. Besides being the greatest drummer ever, his lyrics inspired me and got me through some tough times.

RIP Neil Peart...thank you for the music.

RIP Neil. For those that don’t know, he also wrote their lyrics. A true musician and great guy, by all accounts.

Grew up with Rush. Saw them live a few times. His drum solos were unreal. So sad. RIP 😥😔🙏🏻

Neil Peart can now take his rightful place with the all-time rock four-piece with Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, and John Entwistle. :cry:

He is probably one of my two favorite lyricists; tough call between him and Roger Waters.  So many great lyrics over the years.  A legend in every way imaginable.  Still can't believe it. :no:

RIP Neil, the whole retirement thing makes so much more sense now since it was announced about 3 years ago.  Easily my favorite band and Neil my favorite percussionist and lyricist of all time.  I honestly thought they would take a hiatus but be back at it eventually.

I think Neil retired because of the shoulder and chronic tendinitis problems he was having. Remember that it was 2015 when Rush did their final tour, and even that was a short tour (by their standards), as that is all Neil would agree to do.  And it sounds like he was battling the cancer since 2016.  Even if he had never gotten cancer, I think 2015 was the end for Neil, and Rush as well, no matter what.

You may be right but unfortunately we will never really know now.

If I can be honest, they went out at the right time.  The health issues that Alex and Neil were dealing with would have taken a toll on their playing, meaning their live performances wouldn't have been consistent on a night to night basis, and Geddy's voice was done 10 years ago.  As much as I like Clockwork Angels (some of their best songwriting ever), I wish it had been written and recorded back when his voice was still in tip-top shape (and that the album hadn't been brickwalled to death).

Buck Henry, 89

 

 

 

I remember watching him as a host on SNL and not really realizing who he was. I loved him as Todd's (Bill Murray's) Dad in The Nerds sketches. I think he romanced Lisa's (Gilda Radner's) Mom (Jane Curtin?) in one memorable show. He was also a great straight man to Belushi's Samurai character. Samurai tailor was a personal fave. I remember recognizing him in "Heaven Can Wait" with Warren Beatty.

In the pre-internet days I had to really dig to find out who this "Buck Henry" was.

All always remember Buck for that perfectly timed deadpan delivery of "Are you here for an affair, sir?" as the hotel clerk in The Graduate. Just perfect.

That's when you take an audio recording and artificially increase the volume level so that every aspect of it (including the quiet parts) play at the maximum level. It makes a recording sound loud and distorted, and it cuts off certain frequencies. There was a time (in the late '90s/early 2000s) when many people in the music industry -- even well-respected sound engineers -- thought it was a great idea. But there has been a lot of backlash since then and the industry finally realized that "loud" doesn't necessarily mean "good".
