    (1953-May 11, 2008)
    Born in Canada
    Original drummer for Rush
    Left after recording their eponymous debut album (1974)
    Replaced by Neil Peart
    According to Alex Lifeson, Rutsey wrote lyrics for the songs on the debut album but never submitted them, 'so Geddy had to quickly put some lyrics together.'
    He quit only a month before the start of Rush's first tour.
    He quit music altogether after a failed attempt to start a new band.
    His brother came up with the band's name.
    He left the band because his diabetes made it difficult to go on extended tours.
    He became a bodybuilder and competed at the amateur level.
