Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart has died at age 67.

No more living in the limelight for him....


RIP to a rock icon.

Yeah, Rush seems to be one of those love 'em or hate 'em bands.

I had one friend in the late 80's who was really into them. He played bass in a metal band. Big fan of Geddy Lee.

Had a neighbor across the hall around the same time who couldn't stand them. Said Geddy sounded like a chipmunk. 

I saw Rush in concert back around the early 90's with another friend. Seats were real close to the stage too, but just off to the side, so we got a good view, though from a sharp angle.

Good concert, but they didn't play Limelight, which is the one song I wanted to see them do.

Bastards.

I wasn't a fan, but I once heard a Rush song that sounded like Black Sabbath. In fact, I thought it was, until Lee's vocals started in. Can't stand that voice.

Oh, the song was Working Man, and it was recorded before Peart was in the band.

RIP, Neil.

I love Rush, and Neil Peart OC was such a legendary drummer. He was also a good chap in his private life. He called himself a left-leaning libertarian, and he was also against racism.
R.I.P. Neil Peart!
