Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson lost their bandmate in 2020. The pair recently remembered their friend through social media posts on his death anniversary.
“Apropos for this day – Neil and I strutting down the red carpet at the ‘I Love You Man’ premiere in Los Angeles,” said Geddy Lee in the caption of his Instagram post. “Remembering the good times like this one today.” The musician shared a photo of him and Neil Peart, paying homage to his late bandmate on the day he passed away.
On January 7, 2020, Neil Peart died after fighting an aggressive form of brain cancer. The drummer had been diagnosed with the disease three and a half years earlier, but he didn’t make it public until his passing. Peart’s family announced the news three days later, and the remaining Rush members shared a statement on their website, saying their final goodbyes to their bandmate.
