Today, I am grateful for the music of Rush; eloquently driven lyrically and rhythmically by one Neil Peart. A sonic genius on skins; a clash master on metal.

He wove masterful lyrics to help teach, of course aided by the remaining two members of the dynamic trio.

I am grateful to know the music of Rush; and the rhythms of poetry by Mr. Peart.

It is with broken hearts and the deepest sadness that we must share the terrible news that on Tuesday our friend, soul brother and band mate of over 45 years, Neil, has lost his incredibly brave three and a half year battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma). We ask that friends, fans, and media alike understandably respect the family’s need for privacy and peace at this extremely painful and difficult time. Those wishing to express their condolences can choose a cancer research group or charity of their choice and make a donation in Neil Peart’s name. Rest in peace brother. Neil Peart September 12, 1952 – January 7, 2020
