Didn't see this posted, John Rutsey, the original drummer for Rush (played on their first, eponymous album) recently passed away from a heart attack, possibly related to complications from diabetes (the reason he left the band). Kind of a footnote in Canadian music history, but Rush was a fun, rockin' album.

That's too bad. When I lived in Richmond Hill me and my friends were obsessed with Rush. Someone pointed out the house where John Rutsey lived - we would take a slight detour on our walk home from school hoping to catch a glimpse of him. We never got up the nerve to just knock on the door.
