Neil Peart, Rush Drummer Who Set a New Standard for Rock Virtuosity, Dead at 67
Very sad news indeed.
Wow, talk about a guy who is at the top of his genre.
He was pretty amazing.
Sad news, R.I.P.
Sad news, RIP.
no no dear lord, Neil was as good as it got, RIP Neil
Damn. Damn. Damn.
Wow, was it publicly known that he had brain cancer? This is a huge shock. The man deserved a nice long retirement. RIP
I saw one article just now about it, thought it was a hoax but more and more Twitter posts and articles are coming out
This is shocking, one of the best and a man to be looked up to as a human being let alone for amazing musicianship
OMG. How terribly sad. He only got two years of peaceful retirement before the struggle with cancer began. There are no words.
Rest in peace, Mr. Peart. Prayers and best wishes to his surviving wife and daughter. They must be devastated.
damn-that sucks. I just ordered some Rush vinyl yesterday and was playing a lot of Rush today on the computer. very sad.. Miss you Neil
Two great Neils in so little time
I don't doubt he kept quiet about it. The last thing he wanted was media attention.
I'm really shocked by this I had no idea he was sick. RIP
The key, the end, the answer
Stripped of their disguise
Still it's all confusion
And tears spring to my eyes
Though I've reached a signpost
It's really not the end
Like Old Sol behind the mountain
I'll be coming up again
A God amongst drummers. He must have inspired a huge number of drummers to push themselves further than the standard 4/4. One of the best there'll ever be.
