When I hear of a musician passing away, I am usually a little saddened. But as others have said, given that I have no personal connection to them, it's not usually profound sadness or anything like that.

However, I must say that Neil Peart's recent passing has definitely hit me harder than any other musician's passing. I"m not entirely sure why this is, but I suspect it has a lot to do with the fact that Rush were a really big part of my early years of exploring hard rock music. I became a massive fan and have remained that way all of my life. From a purely selfish point of view, it saddens me that this legendary act will no longer be making new music. It also took me completely by surprise. I had no idea that Neil was sick, so there's the shock element as well.

I've been listening to far more Rush than any other act for the past few weeks....and enjoying the heck out of it!
