RUSH announced Neil Peart died on 7 Jan
« on: January 10, 2020, 08:57:05 pm »
I am sad tonight, I just read Niel Peart died from brain cancer.  Niel was not only the drummer for RUSH, he wrote most of the lyrics for their band.  His lyrics were many times very deep and thought provoking.  The band and their music have been an inspiration to me throughout life and I can't believe Niel has passed on.  The legacy of his art will live on forever in the hearts of those who appreciate his music.

I just found out about his death yesterday.   :(

It turns out that Alex and Geddy knew he had brain cancer for some time, and it was the main reason why Rush called it quits.  I'm pretty sure that Rush is done for - no reunions, etc., due to Neil being the band's songwriter.
