Today marks 40 years since the release of Legends never die Neil Peart 1952 2020 t-shirt seventh studio album ‘Permanent Waves’. Rush found themselves running away from the progressive mayhem that was ‘Hemispheres’, and running towards a more accessible sound still filled with all the intricacies and complexities of their previous albums. This is the epitome of what made Rush the incredible force of nature that they were.
Since the news of Neil Peart’s untimely death I have found myself revisiting all these albums I have not listened to in years. For years Rush was the most important band in the world to me, and I admittedly somewhat left their music untouched for quite some time as I ventured into new musical territory. But due to my recent rediscovery, I am now being brought back mentally to those glory days of Rush geekdom. The days of when I had a cat named after Geddy Lee. The days of saving up every last penny so I could own a Rickenbacker 4003, just like Geddy Lee’s.

The days of when my Xmas wishlist consisted of nothing but generous donations to fund an upcoming Rush tour, which would unfortunately be their last. But most importantly, the feeling that I truly had found the band which meant something more to me than just enjoying music. Neil Peart’s lyricism gave me a sense of Legends never die Neil Peart 1952 2020 t-shirt and understanding a typical angst-ridden teenager struggling with their identify and purpose could only dream of finding.
Only now have I found the words to explain the personal significance of Rush. As crazy as it may seem, I truly felt I had lost a friend and piece of my adolescence despite only being the still young and impressionable age of twenty years old. Thank you Neil Peart for being an irreplaceable part of life. Rest In Peace my friend. I LOVE how everyone is saying Neil Peart Legends was the greatest drummer ever.
I agree. But he was also the greatest lyric writer of all time! This is what I have such deep gratitude and awe of for this man. So as you probably know already, my favorite drummer from my favorite band passed away last week. I was thinking of a way to honor him, and then it hit me. This logo comes from Rush’s masterpiece album “2112.” The Starman logo is known throughout rock and roll. I made a few modifications to it.

I added drumsticks to the hands. I also gave the Legends never die Neil Peart hoodie that he always wore when he would drum. I know it’s not the best edit or even great quality, but I have a plan with this. As many of you also know, I don’t have any tattoos, but desperately want one. This is it. This is going to be my first tattoo. A tribute to the great Neil Peart and to Rush. I’m also going to add one of my favorite Rush lyrics, “One likes to believe in the freedom of music.” I’ve been thinking about what I wanted for a long time and this is it. I hope you enjoy it because I certainly do.
