Richard commented on the passing of legendary rock drummer Neil Peart of Rush. “This is a guy,” said CTV Pop Life host Richard Crouse, “who started off with allusions to being like a Keith Moon or John Bonham, from the Who and Led Zepplin, then introduced elements of big band drummers like Buddy Guy and Gene Krupa to (create a) sound unlike anybody else. He was the youngest person ever inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1983,” Crouse added, “simply because no one else sounded like that.”
It’s been a fun ride and I’d like to thank Jack David, David Caron, Jen Hale, Crissy Calhoun, Jen Knoch, Sarah Dunn, Jenna Illies, Athmika Punja, Erin Creasey and everyone at ECW. Here’s hoping we’re still making books 40 years from now!
