Official music video for Cyril Neville's cover of Rush's Working Man now online
9:35AM EST | comments (25) |

Cyril Neville is the youngest member of the Neville Brothers - the legendary first family of New Orleans R&B - and back on September 10th he released a solo album titled Magic Honey that includes a bluesey cover version of Rush's Working Man. Earlier this week he released an official video for the song which you can check out below or on YouTube here. Neville's son turned him on to the song and he's been closing out his live shows with it as he describes here:

... "My son Omari turned me on to that song," says Neville. "It wound up on my CD Magic Honey, and now we do it in the Royal Southern Brotherhood, closing out the show every night. We've been rocking houses from one end of Europe to the other with it." ...

You can order your copy of Magic Honey here. It's also available on iTunes as well, and you can purchase the Working Man track individually for download here. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.

I like it!
Great rendition by Cyril Neville, he really made it his own and kept the essences of the song intact.

I just sampled most of the album on Amazon. If you like that kind of music it's really good.

I love it!

Honorable mention goes to Steel Assassin for their take on Red Sector A. That one was one of the better Rush adaptations also.

Brilliant cover by Neville - i think it is probably the best cover of a Rush Song I've heard because it retains the essence of that song but doing it his own way. Have just purchased it!

Hey RR,

Thanks for the shout out. This is one of the finest covers of Rush I have ever seen. Hope all is well for all of you out there. Happy Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas or whatever you practice or don't to all.

Cheers

So, the poor dude has a heart attack at the end and the kid picks up the tool and continues the work...cool concept and nice video, great cover!

Watch out Lance the Shred, this dude is giving you a run for your money in the air guitar world!

Peace...
