    Default Neil Peart dead of brain cancer at 67

    Rush confirms drummer Neil Peart dead at 67

    Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist for Canadian progressive-rock titans Rush, has died. He was 67.

    Rush announced on Twitter Friday that Peart died from brain cancer on Jan. 7 following a "incredibly brave three and a half year battle" with Glioblastoma, the same disease that killed senators John McCain and Edward Kennedy, and Beau Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

    “It is with broken hearts and the deepest sadness that we must share the terrible news that on Tuesday our friend, soul brother and band mate of over 45 years, Neil, has lost his… battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma)," tweeted the official account for Rush, which was composed of Peart, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

    The rock band added, "Rest in peace brother."

    Glioblastoma is one of several types of tumors known as glioma that start in the glial — or gluey — cells that form the structure of the brain. Glioma is the most common type of primary brain tumor, meaning tumors that begin and generally stay in the brain. Glioblastoma is the highest grade of glioma, and its most malignant form.

    Terrible loss. I am sad to hear this. He was an amazing artist and a model for drummers. He was able to combine the heights of artistic technique and philosophy.
