Metal Allegiance supergroup covers Rush's Tom Sawyer on Motorhead's Motorboat cruise

I'd mentioned in a Friday Rush updates post a couple of weeks ago that a heavy metal all-star band called Metal Allegiance featuring members of Pantera, Megadeth, Anthrax and Testament played a set of classic metal songs including Rush's Tom Sawyer during Motorhead's Motorboat cruise last month. Tom Sawyer was performed by Joey Belladona (Anthrax) on vocals, Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Chris Broderick (Megadeth) on guitars, Frank Bello (Anthrax) on bass, and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Winery Dogs) on drums. Since I first reported it, a bootleg video of the performance has appeared online and can be seen below or on YouTube (thanks Bob B). You can check out the full Metal Allegiance set list from the cruise here.
