For anyone out there that liked the first Rush album the original drummer died today at 55. Too young.Codolances to his family.

AOL had this report up with a picture of Alex Lifeson. When I first glanced at it I thought it was Alex who passed away. Idiots. RIP John

I've heard some DJs through the years talk about how amazing the drumming is on Working Man, not realizing it was Rutsey and not Neal Peart. Impressive drumming on that first Rush album, including Working Man.

Battled diabetes most of his life, and it was weakness from the disease that forced him to leave the band because he just had no energy to tour, and that was at age 20.

Diabetes SUCKS. Not a condition to be taken lightly at all.

I never knew that, Bhawk. Always wondered why he didn't stay in the band, as he did a brilliant job on the Rush debut album.

Wow, depressing. Was it complications from diabetes? That sucks.

It took an entire week before the official Rush website announced anything of this. There is only a brief news item. I suppose that Rutsey's tenure with the band was too short and less important than his replacement.
