I’m gonna go spend the day air drumming. R.I.P. Neil Peart. That dude fucking shredded. https://t.co/QzsOwBDKY8— Flea (@flea333) January 11, 2020
TOOL drummer Danny Carey put on a hell of a display in honouring Peart at Friday's show in San Diego.
And, some kudos and memories from some notable funny dudes.
Adam Sandler chimed in on Twitter:
Neil Peart. R.I.P. Thanks for all you gave us. We could not have loved you more. pic.twitter.com/efw2Lw0a19— Adam Sandler (@AdamSandler) January 11, 2020
Ricky, Julian & Bubbles paid tribute.
The Trailer Park Boys are heartbroken by the loss of their friend, Neil Peart. For his percussive and lyrical genius that provided the soundtrack to our lives, heartfelt thanks.— Trailer Park Boys (@trailerparkboys) January 10, 2020
"Exit The Warrior"
This one goes out to Neil Peart, who had a good chuckle over Bubbles' DIY drum kit and Julian's chicken skin face. Of course Ricky fucked up as usual! pic.twitter.com/R5igsGLR0j— Trailer Park Boys (@trailerparkboys) January 11, 2020
And some really cool words from Paul Rudd and Jason Segel to Rolling Stone, about what Neil meant to them, and their (underrated as hell!) buddy comedy, ‘I Love You, Man’: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/jason-segel-paul-rudd-rush-neil-peart-i-love-you-man-936604/
If you’ve never seen Sam Dunn’s RUSH documentary, ‘Beyond The Lighted Stage’, it’s absolutely worth watching when you get a chance.
Rest in peace, Neil.
The Dome is playing a shitload of Rush tonight, and that’s a pretty class move. #RIPNealPeart— JD 🥃 (@JDfromCJAY) January 12, 2020
