Neil Peart, Drummer and Lyricist for Rush, Dies at 67

Neil Peart, the pyrotechnical drummer and high-concept lyricist for the Canadian progressive-rock
trio Rush, died on Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif. He was 67.

The cause was brain cancer, according to a statement by the band’s spokesman, Elliot Mintz.

Rush was formed in 1968 but found its long-term identity — as the trio of Geddy Lee on vocals,
keyboards and bass, Alex Lifeson on guitars and Mr. Peart on drums — after Mr. Peart replaced
the band’s founding drummer, John Rutsey, in 1974.

I was never a huge Rush fan - came across via a friend and bought 'A Farewell To Kings' and 'Hemispheres' - the latter I particularly liked. Later I bought 'Permanent Wave' but felt they'd lost something and we parted ways.
