UPDATE - 9/12@4:43PM: Cycle World posted this great piece on Neil Peart in celebration of his birthday, focusing mostly on his motorcycling exploits.

On this day back in 1952, our favorite drummer - Neil Ellwood Peart - was born in Hamilton, Ontario. Neil is the old man of Rush and turns 66 today. Geddy and Alex are a year younger than Pratt; both having recently hit retirement age with Geddy celebrating his 65th birthday back in July, and Alex last month. Speaking of Geddy, Dirk jumped the gun a bit and wished his rhythm section buddy a happy birthday one day early via this Instagram post yesterday:

This past Sunday, September 9th was also Neil and his wife Carrie Nuttall's 18th wedding anniversary. They were married back in 2000. Happy birthday Pratt, and happy anniversary Neil and Carrie!
