One of the greatest drummers out there. Great lyricist. Great Canadian. And by all reports, a great human being. Died of brain cancer earlier this week.
No. Awww man. That hurts.
Neil is my all time favorite.
Just saw this one on CNN
RUSH was a cool band! Sorry to hear this news.
May he Rest In Peace. Prayers for his family.
RIP, Neil. You were one of the best.
Blasting Rush on Pandora now. Peart was a singular talent.
I had “Hemispheres” playing in the vehicle a few days ago. What a ridiculously good album.
I saw them in San Antonio for “Hold your fire” and again a few years later for “Test for Echo”
They played for hours, neither tour had an opening band… absolutely brilliant…
a great drummer and an even better poet
Like @BlackWolf, I’ve been listening through some Rush songs and up came “Witch Hunt”. That was always a favorite of mine to play, so when I get home later tonight, I’ll be applying a copius amount of volume to the guitar amplifier and will have a go. The drums are fantastic on the track, and I like how they’re panned in the mix.
I can’t pretend I like Rush but he was a great drummer and talented guy.
Rest in Peace
We all live on borrowed time. Rest in peace, brother. You impacted all our lives in a positive manner.
