Neil Peart

Neil Peart

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.

Drummers are the most important part of the band. Neil Peart is one of those drummers who are not so famous but have their signature on the many people's heart. He fills his all requirements greatly but still there are still many good drummers which are before him on the list.

Niel can't swing, but... NEW

Niel can't swing and that's why he has that cadence approach. He should NEVER perform Buddy Rich arrangements that swing. because he can't swing. He is a great prog rock drummer.
