Countless musicians paid tribute to legendary Rush drummer Neil Peart following the sad, shocking news of his death on Friday, and one of the many bands to do so was a band who are clearly influenced by Rush, Tool. They played a cover of Rush’s “A Passage to Bangkok” (which they’ve been known to incorporate into their own “Cold & Ugly” at shows in the past) at their show at San Diego’s Viejas Arena on Friday night (1/10), and when drummer Danny Carey returned to the stage to begin the encore with the Fear Inoculum instrumental / drum solo “Chocolate Chip Trip,” he projected a picture of himself with Neil Peart on the screen behind him (attendees also referred to his solo as “Rush-tinged”). They also played Rush’s “2112” over the PA after the show ended. You can watch a video of Danny’s tribute below. (Tool mostly don’t allow cell phone use at their shows, so — perhaps not surprisingly — we haven’t seen any video of the “A Passage to Bangkok” cover.)
