On January 7, 2020, legendary Rush drummer Neil Peart passed away from brain cancer.

Known for his preciseness, his technical expertise and live performances that were just as exact as his recordings on the drum kit, Neil was a master of his craft. Jim and Patrick are joined by Mike Snider and Brad Maylor to discuss Peart’s contributions to rock music. Rest in power.
