By now, many riders are aware that Neil Peart, drummer for the rock band Rush, is an avid motorcyclist. Peart took to two wheels as a form of therapy after he lost both his daughter and wife within the space of one year. From his epic 55,000-mile journey came the book “Ghost Rider.”
After returning from his “retirement” from music, Neil rejoined the band and continues to record and tour to this day. His website is full of fascinating accounts of his travels, comments on life, and reprints of the many articles and interviews written about him.
