Metallica have shared a live version of Rush‘s ‘Tom Sawyer. That’s to pay tribute to the band’s drummer Neil Peart, who passed away earlier this week.

Peart died on Tuesday January 7th after enduring brain cancer for the past three years.

The metallers took to social media to share footage of them performing a cover of Rush’s 1981 song ‘Tom Sawyer’. The track is lifted from their ‘Moving Pictures’ record.

The video’s caption read.“Rest In Peace, Neil…”

Meanwhile Lars Ulrich said in honour of Peart, “Thank you for what you did for drummers all over the world…”
