He was such a huge part of my musical development. Rush taught me how to play odd time signatures and Neil himself, the concept of compositional drum parts.

From the Rolling Stone obit:
At one point, he got in trouble for pounding out beats on his desk during class. His teacher’s idea of punishment was to insist that he bang on his desk nonstop for an hour’s worth of detention, time he happily spent re-creating Keith Moon’s parts from Tommy.

is it too early to say F*** 2020? I hope it's not one of those years...
