Neil Peart Net Worth
Neil Peart Net Worth: Neil Peart is a Canadian musician and author who has a net worth of $42 million. Neil Peart earned his net worth by being the drummer for the rock band Rush. Born in Ontario, Canada, in 1952, Neil Peart took various music lessons throughout his childhood and began bouncing from band to band while he traveled the globe at the age of 18. He eventually gave up on a professional music career and moved back home to sell tractor parts in the family business. He continued to drum on the side and later landed an audition with Rush. He joined the band in 1974 and hit the road for the group's U.S. tour two weeks later. Peart replaced Rush's original guitarist John Rutsey who had health issues that would not have enabled him to tour with the group. Peart was part of several albums before he was forced to deal with personal tragedy that shaped his career. His daughter, Selena Taylor, was killed in a car accident in 1997 and his 22-year marriage ended months later when his wife died of cancer. He split from the group and spent months traveling the world on his motorcycle before deciding to return to Rush in 2001. Peart is a five-time author of nonfiction works, including "Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road", which discusses his journey following the deaths of his family members. He has been married to wife Carrie Nuttall since 2000. He is considered one of, if not the, best drummer on the planet by many fellow drummers.
