    We come into the world and take our chances
    Fate is just the weight of circumstances
    That's the way that lady luck dances
    Roll the bones

    Rush was such a fundamental part of my formative years--feels almost like a death in the family.

    The older I get, the more I appreciate the precision and creativity of Neil's approach to drumming. Not just the complexity, but how "orchestral" everything was--it shaped the music as much as it drove it.

    I remember was I was about 16 I thought I was hot shit because I'd learned a bunch of Zeppelin tunes. My guitar teacher recommended that I started trying to learn some Rush songs, and I was suitably humbled thereafter.

    For me, "Freewill" and "Limelight" are the two quintessential Rush songs, and a big part of what I admire about them is how Neil was able to make all the time changes flow smoothly. They sound like singular pieces of groove, even though there's seemingly a time change every other measure. None of it sounds forced, like a lot of tech metal inspired by Rush does. Heck, have there ever been any more rhythmically complex songs that were played on the radio a zillion times a month?
