Neil Peart News, Weather, and Sports Update - March 2016 - BubbaGram™#5

Neil Peart News, Weather, and Sports Update - March 2016 - BubbaGram™#5
The latest update from Neil Peart (See: BubbaGram™#5, has just been posted to the News, Weather, and Sports section of his website. In this 5th installment of the ongoing BubbaGram series, Neil talks about a harrowing motorcycle accident he suffered back in 2010 during the band's Time Machine tour.

From the entry:
It was September 15, 2010, cool with mixed sun and clouds, a day off after a show in Boston on our Time Machine tour. Dave had dropped us in New York State near Albany, and in the morning Michael and I worked our way over to the Delaware River and started west across the backroads of northeastern Pennsylvania. We were riding in the general direction of the next show, in Pittsburgh, planning an overnight stop somewhere along the way.

The narrow paved two-lane wound along creeks and low ridges, through farmland and leafy woods, with many blind hills and corners. So our speed was “careful.” I came around a right turn to see a sharp left ahead, so was aligning the bike for that next corner entry, when suddenly the whole machine started shimmying below me. It oscillated side to side a few times, then went down. In a snap I was off and sliding across the pavement on my left side. What a universe of fear and helplessness opens inside you during split seconds like that. And no wonder time seems to slow, because it is so full—of raw, existential terror.
Neil continues to explain what happened, and the aftermath of the accident, in the entry. Click HERE to read the rest of the story. Also, below is a video of Neil's drum solo which he performed after getting into his little 'spill'.

  1. Crazy story, lucky he was not seriously injured... I guess the small back road might have been part of the problem but also lucky there was no other traffic... Looks like it was near Elk Mountain Ski resort along highway 374... They really did take the back roads, but so scenic, has to be lot better if you have the time then taking the interstate highways...

  2. As the remaining players in the draw battle for a spot in the last, we review and foresee three must-see coordinates in the desert. Rafael Nadal versus Kei Nishikori [Quarterfinals] As with numerous matchups highlighting Nadal nowadays, this one will pit late memory versus ancient history.
