Neil Peart

This summer (15) the Canadian band embarked on their R40 Live 40th Anniversary Tour, which was designed to commemorate Peart's addition to the group, even though that actually happened in 1974.

Peart's bandmate Alex Lifeson previously said the trek would likely be their last major tour, due to his psoriatic arthritis and Peart’s chronic tendinitis, and after wrapping the final R40 show in August (15), Peart is now suggesting he's finished with his career as a rocker altogether.

Peart: 'I Can't Write Without My Writing Hat'


Rush Neil Peart

Rush drummer Neil Peart refuses to write songs unless he is wearing his special composing hat. The Canadian rocker was given the cowboy hat by a devoted fan, and believes wearing it gives his efforts a certain gravitas. He says, "It was given to me by a fan in Dallas and I always think it helps keep my versifying down-to-earth."

Rock legends Rush are seeking damages for "tens of millions of dollars" for loss of earnings in the wake of guitarist Alex Lifeson's arrest after a New Year's Eve scuffle with police two years ago (31DEC03).

Lifeson, along with bassist/vocalist GEDDY LEE and drummer Neil Peart are suing Florida police for reduced touring performances and recordings after the scandal.
