Some fan-filmed video performances of Rush members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson during the second and last tribute concert for the late Taylor Hawkins are circulating online.
The tribute concert concluded last September 27 in Los Angeles, CA. The Rush members took the stage once as they did on the first part of the tribute show.
Jack Black introduced Lee and Lifeson and Dave Grohl joined them on drums alongside producer and keyboardist Greg Kurstin for the 1976 classic, “2112 Part 1: Overture.” Later in the performance, Chad Smith took the drums and played along for “Working Man,” while Danny Carey of Tool also joined them for the classic instrumental “YYZ.” Lee and Lifeson shared:
“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 Neil [Peart].
“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.”
