Rush drummer Neil Peart.  I am shocked.

So sad. Battling brain cancer for 3 years and kept it quiet. 

This really hurts. Selfishly I’m glad I finally saw him perform live on their final tour. After what he had previously gone through (losing his wife and daughter in the same year) I was hoping he would enjoy a long retirement with his new family, Definitely raising a glass to him tonight.

Was a big fan as well. RIP

Never a huge Rush fan but always appreciated the musicianship and interplay.   I tell you what tho, I listened to a replay of Jim Ladd’s interview with Neil from 2015 on deep tracks, and wow, what a force.  Highly intelligent, thoughtful, articulate, well read,  meaningful stuff to say.  Little did I know he was an author of 6 books.  I played some greatest hits when I got home afterwards and lamented I never got to see them live.  Hella drummer.
