Rush play YYZ at the Foo Fighters Toronto show

For all those drummers who have thought about what it would be like to fill Neil Peart's shoes--even for one song--Taylor Hawkins, drummer for the Foo Fighters, got to live that dream.

Alex and Geddy played YYZ with Taylor at the Foo Fighters' concert in Toronto on Saturday, March 22. I must say that Taylor impressed me with his ability to play Neil's parts.
