I was so sad to see this news. Neil was one of the greatest drummers of all time. Too all those who got to see him live I envy you.

Yeah, this was a bit of a gut punch for me too. He was a beast behind the kit.

I nearly fell off my chair when I heard the news. Greatest drummer of all time, gone. Just like that.

Brutal. Three years battling cancer apparently. Best drummer ever! He'll be missed 100%

If you see "MrBurpler" anywhere on the internet there is a 99% chance that it's me.

Supposedly, the brain cancer was the actual reason behind Rush retiring as a band.


Professional defeater of Hobbzee's RB scores since 1989. :D :P

Saw Rush in 1975 around the time Caress of Steel came out.  I didn't know who they were at the time. I've had the privilege of seeing them 15-20 times over the years up until 2015 and they kept getting better. It is still hard to believe someone so strong could be silenced like this.

That was actually one of my first thoughts as it was around three years ago they decided to stop. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to keep that quiet for so long and hide all that from everyone.
