One of the best dudes to ever hit things with sticks is calling it quits, at least from his band. Neil Peart is readying himself for retirement citing some very important reasons.

First and foremost, Peart "can't stand" being away from his now five-year-old daughter, Olivia, because it's "impossible for her to understand" why he's always having to be gone with his band of over 40 years.

Peart said in a recent interview with Drumhead magazine that sometimes you just have to "take yourself out of the game" and that's what it looks like Peart is planning to do. Cheers to Neil, and hopefully retirement treats him well.
