Very sad news. This guy was such an immense talent, and by all accounts a wonderful human being.

Aw ####, that sucks.

Weird that he died on January 7th and it took this long for the news to get out.

RIP. What an icon in Canadian culture and in the world of music.

This video is the essence of Rush. A glimpse into how these three guys were together. I love Neil's laugh.

Staggering loss, feeling very lucky to have seen him play live. Watched the Time Stand Still documentary over the holidays, and his commitment to his craft was incredible. RIP.
