Geddy Lee And Alex Lifeson Perform Rush’s ‘YYZ’ With Tool’s Danny Carey

Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson recently performed in the second show of the Taylor Hawkins Tribute concert and shared some exciting moments with Tool drummer Danny Carey.

Previously, Lee and Lifeson made their fans happy by reuniting at the 25th-anniversary celebration of the animated TV show ‘South Park.’ For the pair who sang their 1977 song ‘Closer to the Heart,’ coming together again at rehearsals years later remained a bittersweet memory.

At the beginning of September, the duo performed at the first tribute concert for the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, to which many distinguished musicians contributed. Frontman Dave Grohl replaced Neil Peart, who sadly passed away in 2020, and played with them in pieces ‘2112 Part I: Overture’ and ‘Working Man.’

The previous day, the Rush men took the stage in the second part of the tribute concert and played the same set. Grohl reprised his role on the same song, while Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith joined them for ‘Working Man.’ The show became even more interesting when Tool’s Danny Carey, known for his admiration for Rush and covering the band, joined the pair on stage.

Carey played the 1981 song ‘YYZ’ with Lee and Lifeson filling Peart’s place on drums. The performance was an exciting experience for the drummer as he was able to appear on the same stage with his idols. The fans also were highly content to see these names together.
