That may be, but even as an unapologetic Rush fan myself I feel Peart is highly insecure, pretentious and aloof. His writings of late have become more and more cynical to anything apart from the touch/feel reality of his own kitchen table - even more so than his younger days. Perhaps the defiance of mortality has begun to set in, no?
