  • Good for him. Probably the 4th or 5th best rock drummer of all time.

  • This was a hoax back in December. Couldn't find a date on the link posted. I hope he's not done. Easily one of my top 5 most influential drummers.

  • Nothing really new here actually. He described himself as "a retired rock drummer" several months ago. Sad indeed but if you ever had really close seats to one of their shows (I had front row at a Time Machine Tour show in 2011) you know how physical he was on the kit(s) and he's 64 years old.

    Don't be surprised if the band does another album but with no live shows ever again. Also don't be surprised if Ged and Al do an album by themselves and tour with other musicians on stage and do some Rush material and whatever new material they create. I know Ged for sure doesn't want to retire. I don't believe Neil will tour ever again.

    Your opinion seemingly presented as absolute fact. Not the first time either.

    And btw not sure I consider him best ever either though I'd rank him higher than you, top 3 for sure. But again, my opinion.

    Ah, I guess "probably" = "factually". Sorry I wasn't clear there.

    He and Danny Carey are 1a and 1b in my book. I know you're partial to the guys who Zappa played with, but Peart and Carey are the modern day prototypes in my opinion.

    Have to agree here. There are many others that I like that play with some great guitarists. Marco Minneman is one.

  • Rock is losing an ICON, who else could make the last 30+ years of Rush music tolerable :P Maybe try and spell his name right next time.

    Ha! I was just baiting. Peart is up there. I'd say him, Carey, Vinnie Collaiuta, Terry Bozzio and Bonham are probably the top 5. Bonham gets unfairly slated, but go back and listen to albums like Physical Graffiti and Presence. He was a monster, and tight as hell. That change in "The Ocean" from Houses of the Holy is mind-blowing, and it was tight as hell when they did it live.

    Now, before any smart arse comes in with a list of jazz drummers like Buddy Rich or Boogaloo Joe Jones or Art Blakey, we're talking about rock drummers here.

    Bonham kicked ass. Bonham, Moon and Peart are my top 3. Carey is really good too. Saw Tool a couple of years ago and he was top notch. Also like Dave Lombardo ex of Slayer. A YOUNG Bill Ward was good as well but that only lasted a few years.



    For non-rock drummers, Gene Krupa for me.

  • Stanton Moore is a badass, not sure if he is a rock drummer, he did play on the Corrosion of Conformity album "In The Arms of God" which was fantastic.

  • Peart has-been the best rock drummer for decades. Many come and go and many are good. The Rev was pretty good as well and none of you wankers even mentioned him.

  • Seen Rush 4 times a long time ago and have stayed with the band as the go to listen when looking through the play lists in the years since. In the rock world of who is the best bassist, guitarist or drummer is very subjective. But Peart is probably the closest to being the definitive "best".
    He has also had many highs and lows in his life. I wish him the "best for the rest" of his time. Thanks Neil!!

    Man, I can't agree with either of these. I've never been able to get into Deep Purple, and I always thought Mitch Mitchell was more of a JAG drummer for the Experience. I'd say Ginger Baker from that era was a generational talent. He was a jazz drummer who converted to rock, and was excellent.

  • Paice and Mitchell were huge influences for me as a drummer gaining chops, both are awesome.

    Well will agree with you on Ginger. Hadn't thought of him. L80 and I will agree to disagree on the other two.
