Video: Mike Portnoy Pays Tribute to Rush’s Neil Peart on a Teeny-Tiny Drum Kit


More than four years ago, a Loudwire video of Mike Portnoy playing songs by Iron Maiden, Slayer, and Megadeth (among others) on a Hello Kitty drum kit became a viral sensation.

Now there’s a sequel of sorts. The good news is, it’s not a Hello Kitty kit. The bad news is, it is still tiny kit. The best news is, it’s all a tribute to the late, great Neil Peart from Rush, who died from brain cancer this year at the age of 67. So all the songs are Rush songs. There’s also a pretty great moment where Portnoy plays so hard he literally destroys the kit and falls out of his seat. Good times.
