Sad music news as we have learned that Neil Peart, the drummer for Rush has passed away.  The classic hits artist was diagnosed with brain cancer three years ago and has finally lost the battle.

The Canadian musician hit the scene when he joined the already establish Rush in 1974.  He played drums until his retirement in 2015.  He had kept news of his cancer private and it was only announced after he passed.  R.I.P. Neil Peart.
