There may be no band more important to Tool than Rush and no drummer more important than Neil Peart.

The drummer of the legendary canadian band Rush Neil Peart died Tuesday from brain cancer at the age of 67 in Santa Monica, California.

"It is with broken hearts and the deepest sadness, that we must share the awful news that on Tuesday, our friend, soul brother and bandmate of over 45 years, Neil, has lost his incredibly courageous battle with brain cancer, glioblastoma", they said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Drummers the world over have been flooding social media with tributes to one of the greatest to sit behind a kit.

Neil Ellwood Peart was born September 15, 1952 in Hamilton, Ontario and joined the band Rush in 1974.

Carey's intricate style of drumming is a direct result of Peart's and over the course of his solo, he artfully utilizes several of Peart's phrases, including a signature snare pattern from Rush's "YYZ" at about 2 minutes in, which drew a roar of approval from the San Diego audience. In an interview with Drumhead Magazine, he stated, "It does not pain me to realise that, like all athletes, there comes a time to... take yourself out of the game". He was rated 4th in Rolling Stone Magazines Greatest Drummers of All Time.

The greeting to the concert for Peart, who had secretly fought cancer for three years, came as more tributes were received from people like Foo fighters, Slash, MetallicaY Dream theater, who kept a moment of silence for the battery icon during their Saturday night concert in Amsterdam, Holland.
