Puppet Drummer Nails Rush's Tom Sawyer In New Video

(Classic Rock) A puppeteer has released a video of his creation Chops performing Rush classic Tom Sawyer on a model drumkit - and the result is astonishingly accurate.

Ricky Syers - best-known for inventing a machine that allows him to play guitar and drums at the same time - built the model version of Neil Peart complete with working arms and legs, and nodding head.

He also constructed a miniature drumkit from tin cans and metal discs, including operational bass pedal, cymbals and hi-hat control. Syers says: "A little puppet and props I made - and I didn't expect them to actually work! But here's Chops trying to get through Rush's Tom Sawyer."
