Rush legend Neil Peart dies aged 67
Legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart has died after a heroic three-and-a-half year battle with brain cancer.

Family spokesperson Elliot Mintz has confirmed the influential drummer had been quietly battling the disease and sadly passed away in Santa Monica, California on Tuesday (7th January 2020).

Rush have also released a statement on Twitter under the headline 'Neil Peart September 12, 1952 - January 7, 2020', which reads as follows:

"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 incredibly brave battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma)."

"We ask that friends, fans, and media alike understandably respect the family's need for privacy and peace at this extremely difficult time. Those wishing to express their condolences can choose a cancer research group or charity of their choice and make a donation in Neil's name."

"Rest in peace brother."
