The YouTube video was published through Drumio, a music school based in Abbotsford, where Toes is a content project manager and a coach. As of Thursday, January 13, the video had over 198,000 views.

Toez said the response has been incredible.

“It’s great to see this video connect with so many Rush fans around the world and I certainly didn’t expect it to gain so much traction,” he added. “It really shows how big an impact Neil had on the drumming community around the world. It was an absolute honor and a privilege to put this project together as a tribute to Neil.”
