Heavy rock veterans Fu Manchu paid tribute to late Rush drummer Neil Peart by releasing a cover version of the Canadian band’s classic “Working Man” on September 12.
The Californian band wrote on Facebook that they recorded the version in January and added all sale proceeds from the track will be donated to brain tumor research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Peart’s memory.
“Members of our band and our manager were in the audience on August 1, 2015 when this was the final song played by Neil, Geddy [Lee] and Alex [Lifeson]. We are forever grateful for all of the music and memories,” Fu Manchu said in a statement.
“Thanks to Carl Saff for donating his mastering services and to David Medel for donating his art services. Thank s to Jim Monroe for the studio time, engineering & mixing hook up. Thanks to Meg and everyone in the RUSH family. Thanks to John Raso for going the extra mile to help us get this out. This is a digital release only… for now.”
Peart passed away in January at age 67 following a battle with brain cancer.
