    Bonking ... not feelin' well A really sad day

    One of my favorite musicians, Neal Peart of Rush, has passed of brain cancer today.

    I've spent the better part of 40 years playing bass along to his beats and he's been a huge musical influence on me.

    I guess it's remarkable that a bunch of us posted the news at the same time.

    I've read quite a few of his books too. He had quite an impact on my life.

    I should tip a glass of Macallan when I get home tonight.

    It was his favorite.

    A legend indeed. His lyrics were in inspiration to me in my younger years.

    Their 2015 tour documentary is really worth a watch. The man put absolutely everything he had into every concert. I think I remember him saying he would lose over five pounds during a concert.

    Battled brain cancer for 3.5 years.

    Awful. Just awful.
