Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist of the iconic Canadian prog-rock band Rush, has died at the age of 67, CBC News reports. His cause of death was brain cancer, of which he was battling for the past three years, Elliott Mintz, a spokesperson for the Peart family told the magazine.

Peart was an inspiration to a generation of drummers, including Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, who inducted Rush into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013.

Born in Hamilton, Ont., Peart joined Rush in 1974, after the band's first album, replacing original drummer John Rutsey.

"He was one of the goofiest-looking guys I'd ever seen ..." "As far as I was concerned, he was hired from the minute he started playing".

Pulling in outside influences such as jazz, Peart's style became increasingly more progressive, as did Rush's sound by 1976 when they released the epic 2112, which opened with the 20-minute title track which featured seven movements.

On social media, a number of users offered their condolences to his family.
