    R.I.P. Neil Peart

    I was never the world's biggest Rush fan but there's no denying their talent or their influence.

    The CBC is reporting that he passed away on January 7th from brain cancer.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    RIP. I remember as a kid that my uncle would play 2112 incessantly. Maybe the reason I didn't care much for them either but I appreciated the lyrics.

    If it weren't for Geddys voice, I'd probably love them. In any case, shame to lose such a talent so young.

    I was a huge fan in high school, still have every album through Moving Pictures on vinyl. I kinda lost interest after that...getting into punk and heavier metal...but those early albums had a major impact on me. Never really minded Geddy's vocals, I think the absolutely set for kill musicianship distracted me from that. Still spin cuts from 2112, MP, Permanent Waves and Fly By Night on occasion.

    Dammit.

    They were the first band I ever saw perform live and it was during their Fly By Night tour. They opened for Ted Nugent.

    Peart wrote some heavy, thought provoking lyrics. RIP "new guy".
