Was not expecting to see this today. I knew he retired for health reasons but had no idea it was that serious...impressive that they were able to keep it under wraps for three and a half years.

My favorite band...glad I got to see them on their last tour in 2015.

What are the odds of brain cancer taking Neil Peart and Gord Downie? Feels like Win Butler should get yearly tests or something. Seeing a lot of really heartfelt remembrances on social media which is nice to see. People that loved Rush really loved Rush and I definitely respect that. RIP.

A history of his drum kits:

Though I think the one in degens video up thread is the best (aside from being able to see the Devil's logo.)
