This one stung. Rush is the band that I've seen live more times than any other in my life. Why? Neil Peart. Power, finesse, and a time-keeping machine with a musicality that is instantly identifiable... and he wrote most of the band's lyrics to boot.
Rush is one of those iconic bands that can never be the same without any one of their members as they are all equal ingredients to their sound and success, so this is not only the end of a drum legend, but of a legendary band. RIP, Neil. You, and Rush will be missed.
