A Tribute To Neil Peart
Duration: One Month From Starting Date


Choose as many tasks as you wish.
Participation Badge for this challenge.

Tasks:
1. Neil Ellwood Peart was born on September 12, 1952 to Glen and Betty Peart and lived his early years on his family's farm in Hagersville, on the outskirts of Hamilton. During adolescence, he floated between regional bands in pursuit of a career as a full-time drummer. After a discouraging stint in England to concentrate on his music, Peart returned home, where he joined Rush, a Toronto band, in mid-1974.
🥁 Read a book published in September OR set in Canada OR with a character that is a drummer.

2. His future bandmates describe his arrival that day as somewhat humorous, as he arrived in shorts, driving a battered old Ford Pinto with his drums stored in trashcans. Peart felt the entire audition was a complete disaster.

Peart officially joined the band on July 29, 1974, two weeks before the group's first US tour. Peart procured a silver Slingerland kit which he played at his first gig with the band, opening for Uriah Heep and Manfred Mann in front of over 11,000 people at the Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on August 14, 1974.
🥁 Read a book with Humor list on the main page OR with a silver item on the cover (show cover) OR where a character tours around a country.

3. Peart soon settled into his new position, also becoming the band's primary lyricist. His first recording with the band, 1975's Fly by Night, was fairly successful, winning the Juno Award for most promising new act, but the follow-up, Caress of Steel, was greeted with hostility by both fans and critics. Peart responded by penning "2112" on their next album of the same name in 1976. The album, despite record company indifference, became their breakthrough and gained a following in the United States.
🥁 Read a new release (within 6 months of your start date) OR a Series #1 OR a title with a number (of any kind) in it.

4. The recording of five studio albums in four years, coupled with as many as 300 gigs a year, convinced the band to take a different approach thereafter. Peart has described his time in the band up to this point as "a dark tunnel".
🥁 Read a book where the rating contains a 0, 3, 4 or 5 (Tell us the rating) OR tagged DARK.

5. In 1992, Peart was invited by Buddy Rich's daughter, Cathy Rich, to play at the Buddy Rich Memorial Scholarship Concert in New York City. Peart accepted and performed for the first time with the Buddy Rich Big Band. On October 18, 2008, Peart once again performed at the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The concert has since been released on DVD.
🥁 Read a book where a character listens to big band music OR contributes to a scholarship fund OR visits New York City.

6. On August 10, 1997, soon after the conclusion of Rush's Test for Echo Tour, Peart's first daughter (and, at the time, his only child) Selena Taylor, 19, was killed in a single-car accident on Highway 401 near the town of Brighton, Ontario. His common-law wife of 23 years, Jacqueline Taylor, succumbed to cancer 10 months later on June 20, 1998. Peart attributes her death to the result of a "broken heart" and called it "a slow suicide by apathy. She just didn't care."
🥁 Read a book where a character dies in a car accident OR a mother passes away from cancer.

7. In his book Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road, Peart writes that he told his bandmates at Selena's funeral, "consider me retired". Peart took a long sabbatical to mourn and reflect, and travelled extensively throughout North and Central America on his motorcycle, covering 88,000 km (55,000 mi). After his journey, Peart decided to return to the band. Peart wrote the book as a chronicle of his geographical and emotional journey.
🥁 Read a book where the MC attends a funeral OR rides a motorcycle or writes a book.

8. Peart was introduced to photographer Carrie Nuttall in Los Angeles by long-time Rush photographer Andrew MacNaughtan. They married on September 9, 2000. In early 2001, Peart announced to his bandmates that he was ready to return to recording and performing. The product of the band's return was the 2002 album Vapor Trails.
🥁 Read a book where an older couple marries OR with a character that is a photographer OR with a cover that is white, black or orange like Vapor Trails.

9. In the June 2009 edition of Peart's website's News, Weather, and Sports, titled "Under the Marine Layer", he announced that he and Nuttall were expecting their first child. Olivia Louise Peart was born later that year. In the mid-2010s, Peart acquired U.S. citizenship.
🥁 Read a book where a baby girl is born OR where a character acquires U.S. citizenship.

10. Peart announced his retirement in an interview in December 2015. Peart had been suffering from chronic tendinitis and shoulder problems. Peart died from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, on January 7, 2020, in Santa Monica, California.
Peart's death was widely lamented by fans and fellow musicians alike, who considered it a substantial loss for the music industry.
🥁 Read a book where a character retires from their job OR passes away OR a book by Neil Peart.

Choose as many tasks as you wish.
Participation Badge for this challenge.

Tasks:
1. Neil Ellwood Peart was born on September 12, 1952 to Glen and Betty Peart and lived his early years on his family's farm in Hagersville, on the outskirts of Hamilton. During adolescence, he floated between regional bands in pursuit of a career as a full-time drummer. After a discouraging stint in England to concentrate on his music, Peart returned home, where he joined Rush, a Toronto band, in mid-1974.
🥁 Read a book published in September

Kiss of Steel, Bec McMaster, 04.02.2020

2. His future bandmates describe his arrival that day as somewhat humorous, as he arrived in shorts, driving a battered old Ford Pinto with his drums stored in trashcans. Peart felt the entire audition was a complete disaster.

Peart officially joined the band on July 29, 1974, two weeks before the group's first US tour. Peart procured a silver Slingerland kit which he played at his first gig with the band, opening for Uriah Heep and Manfred Mann in front of over 11,000 people at the Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on August 14, 1974.
🥁 Read a book with Humor list on the main page OR with a silver item on the cover (show cover) OR where a character tours around a country.

3. Peart soon settled into his new position, also becoming the band's primary lyricist. His first recording with the band, 1975's Fly by Night, was fairly successful, winning the Juno Award for most promising new act, but the follow-up, Caress of Steel, was greeted with hostility by both fans and critics. Peart responded by penning "2112" on their next album of the same name in 1976. The album, despite record company indifference, became their breakthrough and gained a following in the United States.
🥁 Read a new release (within 6 months of your start date) OR a Series #1 OR a title with a number (of any kind) in it.

4. The recording of five studio albums in four years, coupled with as many as 300 gigs a year, convinced the band to take a different approach thereafter. Peart has described his time in the band up to this point as "a dark tunnel".
🥁 Read a book where the rating contains a 0, 3, 4 or 5 (Tell us the rating) OR tagged DARK.

5. In 1992, Peart was invited by Buddy Rich's daughter, Cathy Rich, to play at the Buddy Rich Memorial Scholarship Concert in New York City. Peart accepted and performed for the first time with the Buddy Rich Big Band. On October 18, 2008, Peart once again performed at the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The concert has since been released on DVD.
🥁 Read a book where a character listens to big band music OR contributes to a scholarship fund OR visits New York City.

6. On August 10, 1997, soon after the conclusion of Rush's Test for Echo Tour, Peart's first daughter (and, at the time, his only child) Selena Taylor, 19, was killed in a single-car accident on Highway 401 near the town of Brighton, Ontario. His common-law wife of 23 years, Jacqueline Taylor, succumbed to cancer 10 months later on June 20, 1998. Peart attributes her death to the result of a "broken heart" and called it "a slow suicide by apathy. She just didn't care."
🥁 Read a book where a character dies in a car accident OR a mother passes away from cancer.

7. In his book Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road, Peart writes that he told his bandmates at Selena's funeral, "consider me retired". Peart took a long sabbatical to mourn and reflect, and travelled extensively throughout North and Central America on his motorcycle, covering 88,000 km (55,000 mi). After his journey, Peart decided to return to the band. Peart wrote the book as a chronicle of his geographical and emotional journey.
🥁 Read a book where the MC attends a funeral OR rides a motorcycle or writes a book.

8. Peart was introduced to photographer Carrie Nuttall in Los Angeles by long-time Rush photographer Andrew MacNaughtan. They married on September 9, 2000. In early 2001, Peart announced to his bandmates that he was ready to return to recording and performing. The product of the band's return was the 2002 album Vapor Trails.
🥁 Read a book where an older couple marries OR with a character that is a photographer OR with a cover that is white, black or orange like Vapor Trails.

9. In the June 2009 edition of Peart's website's News, Weather, and Sports, titled "Under the Marine Layer", he announced that he and Nuttall were expecting their first child. Olivia Louise Peart was born later that year. In the mid-2010s, Peart acquired U.S. citizenship.
🥁 Read a book where a baby girl is born OR where a character acquires U.S. citizenship.

10. Peart announced his retirement in an interview in December 2015. Peart had been suffering from chronic tendinitis and shoulder problems. Peart died from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, on January 7, 2020, in Santa Monica, California.
Peart's death was widely lamented by fans and fellow musicians alike, who considered it a substantial loss for the music industry.
🥁 Read a book where a character retires from their job OR passes away OR a book by Neil Peart.

The Lost Challenges
A Tribute To Neil Peart
Duration:
10/1/2020 - 10/31/2020 (One Month From Starting Date)

Progress: 7 out of 7

Choose as many tasks as you wish.
Participation Badge for this challenge.

Tasks:
1. Neil Ellwood Peart was born on September 12, 1952 to Glen and Betty Peart and lived his early years on his family's farm in Hagersville, on the outskirts of Hamilton. During adolescence, he floated between regional bands in pursuit of a career as a full-time drummer. After a discouraging stint in England to concentrate on his music, Peart returned home, where he joined Rush, a Toronto band, in mid-1974.
🥁 Read a book published in September OR set in Canada OR with a character that is a drummer.

2. His future bandmates describe his arrival that day as somewhat humorous, as he arrived in shorts, driving a battered old Ford Pinto with his drums stored in trashcans. Peart felt the entire audition was a complete disaster.

Peart officially joined the band on July 29, 1974, two weeks before the group's first US tour. Peart procured a silver Slingerland kit which he played at his first gig with the band, opening for Uriah Heep and Manfred Mann in front of over 11,000 people at the Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on August 14, 1974.

🥁 Read a book with Humor list on the main page OR with a silver item on the cover (show cover) OR where a character tours around a country:
The Year of the Hare by Arto Paasilinna - *** - 10/14/2020 - 135 Pages - Listed as Humor

3. Peart soon settled into his new position, also becoming the band's primary lyricist. His first recording with the band, 1975's Fly by Night, was fairly successful, winning the Juno Award for most promising new act, but the follow-up, Caress of Steel, was greeted with hostility by both fans and critics. Peart responded by penning "2112" on their next album of the same name in 1976. The album, despite record company indifference, became their breakthrough and gained a following in the United States.
🥁 Read a new release (within 6 months of your start date) OR a Series #1 OR a title with a number (of any kind) in it.
Death of a Red Heroine by Qiu Xiaolong - ***** - 10/13/2020 - 482 Pages - #1 in Series

4. The recording of five studio albums in four years, coupled with as many as 300 gigs a year, convinced the band to take a different approach thereafter. Peart has described his time in the band up to this point as "a dark tunnel".
🥁 Read a book where the rating contains a 0, 3, 4 or 5 (Tell us the rating) OR tagged DARK.
The Language of Good-bye by Maribeth Fischer - **** - 10/9/2020 - 343 Pages - Rating is 3.90

5. In 1992, Peart was invited by Buddy Rich's daughter, Cathy Rich, to play at the Buddy Rich Memorial Scholarship Concert in New York City. Peart accepted and performed for the first time with the Buddy Rich Big Band. On October 18, 2008, Peart once again performed at the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The concert has since been released on DVD.
