RIP Neil Peart

Rush drummer extraordinaire, for those unfamiliar. A gentle soul and massive talent. No idea he was ill.

Don’t believe everything you think.

I am hitting the age where the musicians making music when I was a kid getting driven around by my mom are dying now. I swear it makes me feel older than birthdays do.

Yeah, it sucks. He'd been sick for a while now. The band had called it quits a few years ago as Neil could no longer play to his satisfaction. Rush is one of the bands I listen to pretty much every day.

Unbelievable drummer. Socially awkward. Great lyricist.
