Rush share Working Man video from Taylor Hawkins Tribute concert

Rush are sharing a snippet of pro-shot video of a performance of “Working Man” from their recent appearance at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert in Los Angeles, CA on September 27.

When the Rush members took the stage following an introduction by Jack Black, Dave Grohl joined them on drums alongside producer/keyboardist Greg Kurstin for the 1976 classic, “2112 Part I: Overture"; Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers stepped in for “Working Man”, with Danny Carey of Tool on board for the classic instrumental “YYZ.”

"For the first time since August 1st, 2015 we returned to the stage at the LA Forum, scene of the very last performance with our lost brother [drummer] Neil [Peart],” shares Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. “This time it was for the second Taylor Hawkins Tribute and sitting behind the throne were 3 wonderful human beings, who also happen to be spectacular drummers.. Dave Grohl, Chad Smith and Danny Carey…. Talk about being spoiled… but the best, yet bittersweet part of this whole deal is that no one would have loved witnessing that more Taylor himself.

“Rest In Peace Hawk, as we keep Alison, Shane, Annabelle and Everleigh Hawkins along with the entire Foos Family in our thoughts."

Lee and Lifeson had previously performed at the London, UK tribute to Hawkins on September 3.
