TOOL paid tribute to Neil peart during the band’s concert Friday night (Jan. 10) at Viejas Arena in San Diego, Calif. While Danny carey‘s RUSH– tinted drum solo, a photo of Danny and the iconic RUSH drummer was projected onto a giant screen behind the stage. TOOL also played a partial cover of RUSH‘s “A passage in Bangkok” in tribute to Pear, whose death was announced earlier today and who was a great inspiration to Carey. In addition, the “exit” music played after the concert was RUSH‘s “2112”.
Five years ago, Carey and Pear joined the old one THE POLICE drummer Stewart copeland for one of the Stewart‘s “Super Grove” jam sessions. Copeland then shared a video from the summit, a four-minute clip titled “A little more noise”, via his Youtube channel.
Pear died Tuesday, Jan. 7 in Santa Monica, Calif., after a three-year battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. He was 67 years old.
Pear joined RUSH in 1974. He was considered one of the greatest rock drummers of all time, alongside John bonham of ZEPPELIN LED; Keith Moon of WHO; and Ginger bakery of CREAM. Pear was also RUSHlead lyricist, drawing inspiration from everything from sci-fi to Ayn rand.
Tool paid tribute to him last night. Passage to Bangkok snippet before Jambi. The onscreen photo of Neil and Danny before Danny played a rush-tinged drum solo and turned on the output music was 2112. Exit the stage to the left for this morning stroll. So disappointed. Truly one of the greats.

Danny Carey presents us with an absolute display just like the rest of @Tool. Nice tribute to Neil Peart. Unbelievable.

Some nice tributes to Neil Peart last night at the Tool show by @adamjones_tv and Neil’s heir to the throne of the greatest drummer on earth, Danny Carey. This clip has nothing to do with it, however, just my favorite guitar solo from… https://t.co/gqmxhAM1gB
