Neil made his living & fame as the extraordinary rock icon he became, but he was a lover of jazz influenced by Buddy Rich among others. Here he is on the final day of Letterman's Drummer Week.  Hang on until the end for a real treat as he jazz's it up with Paul & the band.

I read this a few hours ago while I was out and I'm heart broken.  I'm a huge Rush fan and a great admirer of Neil Peart.  There's no debate that he was among the best rock drummers ever (the best, IMHO).  He was also an amazing lyricist who set a new direction for Rush upon joining them in 1974, an author, philosopher, humorist, and if you know anything about the band & his mates, a true friend to the end. The band said once that Red Rocks was their favorite venue in North America and I attended several of their shows there, which were indeed amazing. OV joined me for one of those shows in 2009, which was quite special for me.

WTH?!? I just watched the video for "Subdivisions" the other night on YouTube. I have no real knowledge of drumming but his work always seemed crisp, precise and integrated with the other instruments.

From 1959-62, he generated some notoriety by pretending to be G. Clifford Prout Jr., the president of the Society for Indecency to Naked Animals (SINA). Henry called the prank organization 'a parody of uptight, silly morality chasers.' (Slogans included 'A nude horse is a rude horse.') But Walter Cronkite, who broadcast a serious segment on SINA for CBS News, never forgave Henry for not letting him in on the joke."

I can't believe people still listen to the radio.  I know who he is from articles on the internet, but have not listened to radio since the early 90s.  I guess you gotta be pretty shallow to still listen to your music from clear channel stations so most that listen to him already had a questionable foundation without his assistance.
 
I was no fan, but those comments are dripping with a lot of superiority for someone / something you never heard on the radio.

 

No doubt, I am a serious music snob.  But I suppose all of us here are to some degree, no?   Obviously I have  never heard his show, I did love Art Bell Coast to Coast so I suppose I did listen to talk radio.  I just had to get a dig in on the sad state of music radio programming these days.

Bill...I knew that (about the talk format).  He's been off the air for a while (over a year?), but trashing clear channel listeners ignores the reality of internet access and options for several demographics, including age, income, and race.

As a Rutgers Alum and NY/NJ resident, I followed it pretty closely.  Besides losing his job (which eventually ended up in a wrongful termination lawsuit that was settled...he was owed $40M when he said it), he did issue an apology and later met with the team.

“I want to take a moment to apologize for an insensitive and ill-conceived remark we made the other morning regarding the Rutgers women’s basketball team, which lost to Tennessee in the NCAA championship game on Tuesday,” he said. “It was completely inappropriate and we can understand why people were offended. Our characterization was thoughtless and stupid, and we are sorry.”

"I was wrong" is a powerful statement, and I think he (and his audience) learned from his comments.  Imagine how much less we'd have to talk about these days if people in positions of power would apologize for obvious mistakes in character / judgement?
 
Was aware of his passing the day after but chose not to bring it up or discuss him until someone else did, knowing this place.

I do not know the answer to the bolded.  I do know that some have forgiven him.  I do know that he worked hard towards the end to try and redeem himself at some level.  I do not know if he ever learned to accept forgiveness.

Being in Cleveland as long as I have and being a fan of radio since the Beatles arrived on our shores, I have listened to some form of talk radio in the wee hours all that time as well as music radio.  Imus broke out of Cleveland for the Big apple shortly after I arrived here.  I listened to a lot of NY AM radio when I lived in Philly before getting to Cleveland.  We were proud to have him move up and onward to the big markets as some have before him and many after him.  We took him back in when he came back in 1978.  Lost track of him from then on when he went back to NYC until the Rutgers thing.  He stayed on my radar and I finally watched the last two or three years of his simulcast on FBN.  I only watched the show on FBN at first out of curiosity of how a working radio broadcast of this format actually went down, that and the business news part spared me of a lot of other partisan bs found on other morning shows.  There I saw a dying man making his push to the end with all the fight in him that he could muster while on oxygen.  I also saw a man who knew he was an asshole who made many mistakes along the way.  I in no way condone all the terrible things he did in his life.  But that is all he will be remembered for, if he is even remembered at all despite his positive accomplishments later in life.

Pete Rose will get in the HOF before Imus is ever forgiven, because that is how people roll these days.
