    R.I.P. to the rock drummer who embodied precision.

    Fighting brain cancer for three years. Now we know why Rush quit touring.

    I had not heard of the cancer. But it does explain the rumors of Rush performing with another drummer. Regardless, a loss of a uniquely talented musician.

    I predict a Neal Pert tribute concert featuring Rush with Dave Grohl. And I say that because it will be sad to see if it happens. Dave is a good drummer, but Pert was in a league of his own. Maybe if they could get Stewart Copeland...

    When I was a kid and teen all I wanted to be was a drummer and by the early '80's Neil was THE drummer I wanted to be. I didn't have many heroes when I was growing up and almost none as a teen. Neil was the exception. As I got older and began to learn more about him as a person my hero worship and admiration actually grew stronger. He was an amazing musician and an idol to many, but from all accounts, he was also a very good man.

    Neil, may you Rest In Peace and be re-united with your daughter and other loved ones.

    I was introduced to Rush during the 9th Grade. The Drummer for the school band, ( a damn good one) introduced me to Rush and old ELP (when they were Emerson Lake and Palmer, not Powell) albums when a few of us went to his house for an afternoon jam session. When i discovered that Neil Peart passed away, I immediately went to Chris's posts on Facebook, and he was obviously devastated.

    RIP to the Professor
