Neil Peart, the legendary drummer for Canadian rock band Rush, has died at age 67.

A spokesperson for the Peart family, Elliott Mintz, confirmed that Peart died of brain cancer in Santa Monica, Calif., on Jan. 7.

Rush paid tribute to their “friend, soul brother and bandmate of over 45 years” in a statement.

According to the band, Peart had been battling glioblastoma for three and a half years before his death — the same type of brain cancer that claimed the life of Gord Downie.

“We ask that friends, fans, and media alike understandably respect the family’s need for privacy and peace at this extremely painful and difficult time,” Rush said.
