Watch Les Claypool and Sean Lennon Play A Beatles Song with Geddy Lee of Rush

The legendary frontman of Rush joined the Claypool Lennon Delirium onstage in Toronto.

On Wednesday night, Rush frontman and bassist Geddy Lee made a surprise appearance onstage with the Claypool Lennon Delirium onstage in Toronto to cover The Beatles’ Tomorrow Never Knows.

Watch the two legendary bassists jam it out while John Lennon’s son, Sean Lennon, nails a spacey guitar solo: 

Primus and Claypool Lennon Delirium frontman Les Claypool posted about the experience on Instagram:

Last night was a pinnacle moment for this Ol’ Colonel’s career. My dear friend and childhood superhero #GeddyLee decided to join The Delirium onstage in Toronto for our rendition of Sean’s Dad’s, Tomorrow Never Knows“. As Geddy slinked out of the shadows with my Pachyderm bass in his mighty grips, the crowd slowly swelled to a frenzy of recognition. 

The energy and excitement was so palatable that it brought a joyful tear to my eye. Like Joe DiMaggio stepping back up to the plate, Geddy proceeded to show us all why he is one of the greatest to ever wield a four string piece of furniture. It was pure magic and I imagine I’ll feel the tingle on the back of my neck for some time. 

Alas, our recording equipment went on the fritz so it will only live in our minds…and on the handful of cellphones that were fortunate enough to capture the glory. Good times. – Les Claypool.”
