    I had beers tonight with a buddy of mine who's a huge Rush fan and raised an interesting discussion.

    If Rush wasn't done, and ignoring the fact that NP was the primary songwriter/lyricist as well - what other drummers could possibly step into this gig? Who else is really even close to being on the level that Peart was? Portnoy and Mangini come to mind obviously, but who else? Marco Minnemann, maybe? Virgil Donati? Gavin Harrison?

    I had this come across my Youtube feed tonight. Supposedly Portnoy has said this is the only guy he can't match

    Also a die hard Rush fan.
    We've lost one of the best thee ever was.
    Rest in Peace, Neil, you'll be so missed and never forgotten.

    I've been contemplating taking up drums. The day I can play his stuff will be a day of days

    I feel like Gavin would be the guy for that. The others are monster players, but they'd want to turn it into a pure chops demonstration, which wasn't Neil's thing. He flashed his chops in the right places but mostly focus on shaping the songs.
