Personal Quote:

Anytime I have an idea, I'll make sure that I put it down so that when we do sit down to write an album, I don't have to dream it all out of thin air. I don't have to be creative on the spur of the moment, or spontaneously artistic. I just take advantage of whenever creativity strikes. See more »

Trivia:

Until the mid-90s, when he took lessons from Freddie Gruber, Neil played the drums with the "butt" ends of the sticks. This was out of force of habit from his youth when the tips of his sticks would break off and he couldn't afford to replace them. See more »
