After Sunday evening’s game between the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens, the man, a member of the Ravens marching band, was captured celebrating by air drumming (to near perfection) the 1981 classic rock tune.
Rush reached out to praise the man for his talents via Twitter saying, “the professor (Peart) would approve!”
Prescot Rossi, a Rochester-based sports reporter and anchor who regularly shoots for the Bills, originally posted the clip.
He responded after all the positive feedback and uproar. “I spotted him rocking during a timeout in the 1st quarter. It was so pure… I’m thrilled that so many people love this dude’s energy too.”
And people did love it, at least on Twitter.
I was wrong……I'm the 2nd best air drummer east of the Mississippi https://t.co/JSa3NH7otB
