Pete Frates, the former college baseball captain whose battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease helped spark a global fundraising movement to find a cure for the fatal neurological disorder, died Dec. 9 at his home in Massachusetts. He was 34.

Frates was celebrated around the world for popularizing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised more than $200 million for efforts to fight the disease. The viral challenge involved people posting videos of themselves dumping buckets of ice water on their heads and making a donation to charity.

“Pete was an inspiration to so many people around the world who drew strength from his courage and resiliency,” Frates’s family said in a statement.

Crap, one of my favorite bands ever. Thank you Neil for all the great moments. Seen em live three times.

The guy was a monster on the drums and his solos were memorable. RIP
Didn't know he was the principal lyricist for Rush. Damn, what a talent.

Explain why that's so funny?

Dude creates new and interesting beats all the time. He's fast as hell. He's versatile. He's a better drummer than what the haters think cause it's an easy go to to hate on him.


Sigh.
Why? Because it’s hilarious. Travis Barker is a very good drummer.

He’s not remotely close however to being considered by any serious music person the greatest drummer of all-time.

He's listed as Rolling Stone's top 100 drummer, noob.

It's hilarious how ignorant people are to Barker's talent.

Rickey Henderson is one of the greatest baseball players ever.

No one would say he is the greatest baseball player ever...as you’ve said Barker is as a drummer.

It’s hilarious how this is tough for you to comprehend.
