      Some of you will be missed, some of you won't. Either way, you're dead and may you rest in peace.

      FWIW - The first page of the 2019 thread listed Douglas (103), Eastwood (89) and Connery (89) and they all made it...

      My best friend died at age 55 the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I had known him 40+ years, was best man at his wedding, visited him in VA 2-3x a yr. He had a wife, 2 grown daughters and was about to retire in a year.
      He was a drummer since age 10, guess who was his favorite drummer, and he could play all of it...

      I am gutted...

      Have seen Rush maybe 20 times, 15+ times with my buddy Tony!

      RIP

      One of my first shows was Rush for the Permanent Waves tour....loved that band so much - a big part of my Jr High and HS upbringing.
