Neil Peart, RUSH's director of beat, the patron saint of virtuoso drummers, has died at 67. Saying anything more about one of the greatest drummers of all time would be superfluous. I'm not positive about protocol, but I'm pretty sure I have to put black mourning bands around my own sticks for the next month. The king is dead.
And if there's a rock-and-roll heaven, you know they've got a helluva band.
