Donna Halper is a broadcaster and historian who introduced Rush to America, but not only that, she helped to get Rush into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Today Donna and I remember the great Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist for Rush. In addition to his 40 year career with the band, Donna and I also discuss how Neil was also a gifted writer, thinker and philosopher. Read Donna’s tribute to Neil in the Quincy Patriot Ledger.
