Cool story.. I meet a guy and his son at church recently who both know the band Rush personally. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a huge Rush fan.
Neil Peart sent a set of sticks to these guys and guess what? They were kind of enough to give me one of them. I have attached a couple of photos below. This is a Pro-Mark signature Neal Peart stick that Neal actually played with live during last year's tour in CT.
I am really not big on memorabilia from anyone. Not sure why really. I am going to keep this stick forever though. Not because it is a drumstick that Neal Peart played, but it was something of great value to a father and son who gave it to me after meeting me just once. Now that is the real story.
