Neil Peart, Rush Drummer Who Set a New Standard for Rock Virtuosity, Dead at 67

rose

Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist for Rush, died Tuesday, January 7th, in Santa Monica, California at age 67. The cause was brain cancer, which he had been quietly battling for three years, according to Elliott Mintz, a spokesperson for the Peart family. A representative for the band confirmed the news to Rolling Stone.

Rush, which formed in Toronto in the 1970s, attracted a loyal, worldwide fanbase, sold millions of records and influenced a multitude of rock musicians with its complex, literary music.

The trio was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994, joining the U.S. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.........

I was sad to hear this news. Neil was one of the best drummers anywhere and he had a tough life outside of the band. Lost his wife and daughter years ago that sent him into a deep depression and battled brain cancer. I've had the pleasure of seeing Rush a few times over the years and Geddy Lee is still a big part of the Toronto scene. They made some amazing music over the past several decades. Neil will be missed in the music world and beyond.
