Neil Peart Drummer and Lyricist of Rush Has Died at 67

Neil Peart, who is know as one of the greatest drummers in rock music, has sadly died at the age of 67.

Peart died in Santa Monica, California, on Tuesday after a long battle with brain cancer for several years.

The band confirmed Peart’s death on Twitter on Friday, saying their “friend, soul brother and band mate” had been fighting glioblastoma for three and a half years.

The band suggested anyone wishing to express their condolences should make a donation to a cancer research group or charity in Peart’s name.
