Not stirring or trolling, just what I heard from a close source, hopefully it's not true, time will tell I guess!

A source close to you or to NEP?

Hope Neil is well and the industry rumours going round are not true! That's all I have to say!

OK, spill it! What industry rumors? Are you in the industry?  ;)
I was shocked when I heard but I suppose I thought it would all work out alright in the end!  :sigh:

Just curious how widespread these rumors were at the time? Did you hear that he specifically had terminal brain cancer? Or just that he was in declining health? This still is so awful. RIP Neil.

Also, Mike Portnoy said yesterday while calling into a Neil tribute show on 93.3 WMMR Philadelphia that he was let in on Neil’s cancer “two years ago”, so I’m guessing maybe in early 2018 Neil started telling close acquaintances outside of his very inner circle, which may be how some of the “industry rumors” got out.  He also said that when he was told, Neil’s family thought he was nearing the end of his fight, but he ended up holding on 2 more years.

It’s all so very sad, in hindsight. But it is also just...life. Dying is as much a part of living as anything else.

But we have the body of work that has been left behind, for all time- all of the prose, lyrics, and music.

I had just read a couple of people that were close to Neil say that they knew as far back as 2016. One was the guy that he wrote Clockwork Angels with. The other someone Ive never hear of, and it was on his IG page. So, Im guessing it wasnt "public" but many people knew. There was a pic of Neil sitting with his daughter, she holding his hand, and him reading to her. My daughter is the same age. Broke my heart.
