This is ‘Chops Sawyer’.
He plays the tin can drums better than 90% of rock bands and 100% of emo-core bands.
Made by clever drummer/puppeteer Ricky Syers.
Watch him nail Rush’s ‘Tom Sawyer’.
If Neil Peart ever goes down… Rush have their replacement all lined up.
Watch the masters deliver the original the right way…
Interesting note: The studio featured in that video is a place in Quebec, Canada called, “Le Studio”. Dubbed ‘Rush’s Abbey Road’, it was featured in numerous videos and hosted many world-famous recording artists (Nazareth, Bee Gees, The Police, Brian Adams, Cat Stevens).
Since 2008, Le Studio has been abandoned and fallen into a state of ruin.
Check out a GoPro tour of the dilapidated studio where some of the finest rock was ever recorded.
“Magic” 1978, starring Anthony Hopkins. I’ve had nightmares my whole life because of this…
