OK..Neil Peart is a great rock drummer, although he doesn't have that 360 degree influence such as, Steve Smith or Bill Bruford.
He truly has "ROCK ONLY" chops, and many of these underrated drummers can make his hair stand on end, especially when executing odd time signatures on a higher level.
Neil Peart is like a time clock and has "on the beat" direct feel, almost like a marching cadence effect.
Although he fills this requirement great, yet I still don't think he's as good than many of these guys on this list.
