Part of any college football game is the halftime show featuring each university’s marching band. Ohio State University has long been known for the excellent performances. This past Saturday they paid tribute to Hall Of Fame rockers Rush. The University said in a statement, “To honor the early 2020 passing of one of the greatest drummers in history, Rush’s Neil Peart, the Ohio State Marching Band added a little more percussion to the mix for the halftime show Saturday,”...“To help recreate Peart’s sonic impact, the percussion section was expanded by 20 toms and 20 extra cymbals mounted on four racks. They were at the front of the formation and played by the band’s five percussion alternates for this week.”
Rush responded to this outstanding tribute.
