The Ohio State Marching Band honored late RUSH drummer Neil Peart during its halftime program Saturday (October 9) at Ohio Stadium as part of Ohio States homecoming game against Maryland.
According to Ohio State News, to help recreate Pearts sonic impact, the percussion area was broadened by 20 toms and 20 extra cymbals installed on 4 racks. They were at the front of the development and played by the bands 5 percussion alternates for this week.
The band blistered through a few of RUSHs greatest hits, consisting of “Red Barchetta”, “Fly By Night” and “Tom Sawyer”. Formations duplicated Peart and RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson, and spelled out “2112” and “YYZ”, titles of RUSH tunes.
After the Ohio State Marching Band tweeted out a short clip of the homage, RUSHs main Twitter account responded “Were speechless” and added three “clapping hands” emojis.
Peart died in January 2020 in Santa Monica, California after a three-year battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. He was 67 years old.
RUSHs last program happened at the Forum in Los Angeles on August 1, 2015. Peart suggested at the time that he wished to retire while he was still able to play well, together with a desire to invest more time at home with his young daughter.
Lifeson and bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee have consistently said that RUSH will never do a show unless all three musicians accept participate. They havent carried out as RUSH without Peart because he joined the band in 1974.
