    Oh man. That sucks. Great talent. One of my favorite bands growing up..2112 is still one of my favorite albums ever. Very sad, and way too young. Drummers everywhere are heartbroken today, as are millions of kids of the 70s. Rest in peace Mr. Peart. Thanks for the grooves.

    I just heard this two minutes ago! Brain cancer...they all kept it quiet for 3 years they said here on 97 Rock. Wow, I am shocked. RIP Niel...the best drummer ever bar none!

    I'm still shocked. Despite being a guitar player I'm a drummer in my heart... one of my favorites, one of the greatest!

    While I’ve never liked Rush, he was absolutely a great talent. Condolences to his family.

    Not just a drummer, but a true percussionist.

    Neil was an incredible drummer and lyricist. His inspiration will live on. Rest in peace Mr. Peart.

    I never really loved Rush either but in high school all the drummers I knew totally idolized his playing; it's gonna be a sad time for lots of fans.
    Pretty young too.

    RIP.

    A great Canuck musician & lyricist bites the dust.
    Our condolences to friends and family.
    As Neil would tell us....the beat goes on.
