I was blown away by the very sad news that Neil Peart, the drummer of Rush passed away on January 7 at the age of 67. He succumbed to brain cancer or more specifically glioblastoma which also took Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip. I had no idea Neil was that ill. Apparently he fought for about 3 years or so. What a tremendous loss. Neil was arguably one of the best percussionists out there.
