A damn shame, but now we know why he gave up touring. Very glad I caught their last two tours, and many of the early ones.

perhaps the greatest drummer that ever lived. a creative music writer, and an author.

he will be missed.

my first concert experience, lakeland florida 1976, the 2112 tour

My first Dungeon Master was pretty enamoured by them, and I think it came all together for them with Tom Sawyer; I thought that The Best of Times was by Rush as well, but checking it turns out Styx.

Tom Sawyer is likely their most popular song. Some may be hearted to know that they did 11 more studio albums after Moving Pictures which Tom Sawyer came from.

This was an aspect I found seemingly unique to Rush. Very little band drama, and they produced and toured, almost like clockwork (until the band went on hiatus when Peart lost his family in a pair of tragic events). Their first album was 1974, and their final album (one of their best, IMHO) was 2012.

Few bands have had their productivity and longevity.

Funny, I was thinking of "The Best of Times" by a completely different band.
