Neil Peart was one of Mike Portnoy's greatest influences, and the two of them were friends for the better part of two decades. In a hilarious Loudwire video, the Sons Of Apollo and former Dream Theater drummer pays homage to his musical hero by playing his favorite Rush songs on a teeny, tiny kid's drum kit. 

 

 

At the end of the video, Mike Portnoy gets serious about the loss of Neil Peart, announcing he'll be auctioning off the drum kit, which he autographed, with proceeds benefiting the American Brain Tumor Association. You can get in on the bidding here

 

Happy Rocking,
