 Carmine Appice was asked about the recent passing of Neil Peart of Rush,” Neil was an inspirational part of the drumming community. He came after I did by maybe 10 years. I watched him grow and he became a huge influence on young drummers. For me I loved that track Tom Sawyer, he does a tremendous job on that doing a 7/8 timing. “ Appice continued,” Neil was the nicest guy, I met him a few times, we hung out a few times, he was always really nice.
