How does Neil pronounce the name that he's been going by for over sixty years? How does his father pronounce it?

The 'English' pronunciation is Pee-art

#16-"One day I fly through a CRACK in the sky" pretty much sums it up......;)

Yawn Yet just crossed my mind...

Neil "Pert" is right up there with "Ann" Rand. I can understand if people think is sounds a little too precious to pronounce these names correctly after years of hearing it wrong. It is a bit like pronouncing Iraq and Iran properly after hearing news reports about "I rack" and "I ran".

I have a little "confession" to make. I consider myself a pretty big fan of Rush...and I've known the correct way to pronounce Peart for a long time, but I still pronounce it like "Pert". Don't ask me why. I just do. I think maybe it's because for the first few years, after I got into Rush (around 1984-1986) I just got used to hearing it as "Pert" and pronouncing it that way and I just stuck with it.
So, needless to say , it doesn't really get me upset when I hear others pronounce it "wrong". At the same time, it does impress me when I hear someone in the media pronounce it "Peert". I think Letterman did, when Neil was on his show.

Love it. "Pee-irrt" (especially nice in German, btw) strikes me as the best "foreign-language pronunciation guide" writing. :)

some say bftb has a legit. mental condition, I say he is a phoney.He's just trying to seem weird and mysterious but I think he needs to quit wasting time and space in this blog. Whatever. I just read a review in the Toronto Sun of our girl Joan Jett playing at Casino Rama. Almost sold out ,from what I could see tickets are about $40 and up. One venue she's playing soon says the tickets are $65 to $415 but here's the kicker....she plays for 1 hour and ten minutes.15 songs then a 3 song encore!(there may have been a warm-up band also).This just makes me appreciate the show Rush puts on even more.So for those who are whining about the ticket prices of a Rush show and that they don't really play a 3 hour show it's actually ONLY 2:50 mins. pull your head out of your arse!

#15 - Posted 3/2/13 @10:14PM by digitalfries [contact]

Sadly enough he says it "pert" not "peert".
