    I was just showing my wife one of his drum solos last night that I’ve seen a million times and I was still blown away by it just like the first time I saw it. He’ll definitely go down as one of the best drummers and also one of the most inspirational musicians in history.

    A visionary an elite musician a rock god is gone but we had the luck to see him at his best. I was lucky to see a number of Rush album tours!

    Thanks from all of us for being able to benefit from his work and his love!

    Great idea. Two hours hence (here).

    A bright light has been extinguished in Canada. May the memory of your ability, grace, and majesty live on in our hearts.

    Yeah, my wife lost one of her brothers to a gliobastoma in August. It sucked to see him waste away over 12 months. I’m crushed.

    (Forgive the philosophy, but this is what my Dad went through almost 25 years in the past...)

    Sometimes the light gets brighter before it goes out. Folks wonder if their search for real understanding in life is only what they hold in their own hands, and heart. And I've noticed that when the light eventually flickers, the light often puts itself in God's hands, and lets Him handle what needs doing...
