Between The Ghost Rider and the Ghost Writer

From the 1981 Rush song “Limelight,” the lines reference a passage from the William Shakespeare play As You Like It, and are just one example of drummer and lyricist Neil Peart’s thoughtful, literary writing. Peart died of brain cancer on Jan. 7, 2020, at the age of 67. He was widely considered the greatest drummer in rock history.
