After the death of Neil Peart, a lot of famous persons have shared his photos and written messages about the death of Neil Peart. Lzzy Hale has shared a rare photo of Neil on her own account and made a statement for explaining her emotions after losing Neil Peart.

Here’s the statement of Lzzy Hale:

“Without the immense talent, daring musical direction and sheer innovation of this legendary drummer… Today’s drum heroes would not exist. Lil bro @arejayhale and I went to see Rush at the Hershey Arena during the Vapor Trails tour.

My little brother beside me, air-drumming to every fill and crash… I got to witness him discovering that his dream was possible…if Neil could be up there on an arena stage… then so could he!! Arejay studied Neil and learned every song.

It’s safe to say that our sound would not be what it is without this specific ingredient in Arejay’s stew of influences. Our hearts go out to Neil Peart’s family and to all the people that he brought into his circle that had the honor to call such a great man their friend.

Neil, You may have left us physically, but your legend and beautiful soul will carry on within us, living and breathing through music. Rest In Peace and in Power.”
