Neil Peart Retiring?

According to Digital Trends, Neil Peart told Drumhead Magazine that he’s now a “retired drummer” – but is that the truth? However, Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee insists that nothing has been decided about the band’s next move, and Peart is just taking a break.  Multiple sources, however, claim that Peart will in fact be retiring, or at least no longer touring.

Billboard notes that Peart, held by many as the greatest rock drummer of all time, told Drumhead Magazine that he’s now a “retired drummer.” It’s unclear if this means that he’s only retiring from performing shows or if he’s entirely done with recording and performing with the band. It’s known that Peart has suffered from chronic tendonitis.
