There are no words to express my sadness. Neil Peart was not just one of the greatest drummers to have ever graced a stage with his art, but he was a consummate professional, artist and made an entire generation think as never before with his lyrics which were - and made us feel as human beings - closer to the heart.
I am heart broken and in absolute shock. His quiet battle speaks volumes of his love for fans and for his own space and peace. If there was ever a musician who integrated being gentle, zealous for music, deeply original, provocative, loved family and friends, and above all else - the pursuit of truth - it is and was Neil Peart.
He is now part of the mystic rhythms on the other side... and we are the poorer for it.
