    That stinks. What he could do with the drums was almost criminal.

    His never-ending quest for privacy was evident here. He actually died on Jan. 7.

    Selfishly, I retroactively feel like a terrible person for always wanting one more go around from this man who, in addition to the passing of his wife and daughter, suffered more than any of us knew.

    He owed us nothing and he gave us everything.

    Every album, every show - everything.

    Crushed is the right word.

    Fortunate to have seen Rush live three times, and his solos were something to behold. A fucking clinic. RIP. Dammit.
