Watch Mike Portnoy cover Rush classic YYZ for charity

From Loudersound.

Mike Portnoy recently got together with bassist Stu Hamm, guitarist Paulei Z and keyboardist Walter Ino to play a lockdown cover of the Rush classic YYZ.

The four musicians hooked up to help raise money for the David Z Foundation, which provides aspiring musicians with the tools they need to make their mark on the music industry.

The foundation is named after musician David Zablidowsky who died in 2017 in an automobile accident.

In the video, Portnoy can be seen sporting a Neil Peart basketball top, with all four musicians delivering a fabulous rendition of the track that originally appeared on Rush’s landmark 1981 album Moving Pictures.

Rush drummer Peart died in January following a three and a half year battle with brain cancer, with Portnoy later raising money for brain cancer research by playing a selection of his favourite Rush tracks on a tiny drum kit that was then auctioned for charity.
