Peart died Tuesday in Santa Monica, California, after battling brain cancer for years.
Rush confirmed Peart's death on Twitter Friday, saying their "friend, soul brother and band mate" had been fighting glioblastoma for three and a half years and suggested anyone wanting to express their condolences make a donation to a cancer research group or charity in Peart's name.
