The first rock legend of the decade bites the dust after a battle with brain cancer. :(


Neil Peart, the drummer of iconic Canadian band Rush, has died at age 67.

The influential musician and lyricist died Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif., after having been diagnosed with brain cancer, according to a statement issued Friday by family spokesperson Elliot Mintz.

His death was confirmed by Meg Symsyk, a media spokesperson for the progressive rock trio comprising Peart, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

Along with penning impressive lyrics, Peart was renowned for his proficiency on drums and expertly weaving together techniques from different musical genres, blending jazz and big band with hard rock.

Our press says that he was battling the Big C for years.

I know from my own experience it is a tough time for all.

Thoughts are with his family and friends.

Thanks for the music NP

I just finished watching the full CBC interview.

What an intelligent and articulate man.

Truly a great loss for our culture. :(
