Neil Peart

All i have to say is watch the R30 drum solo by
Neil Peart and then try to say there is a better drummer than him.

I have never seen any other drummer in the world do what he does. And he doesnt just use a standard kit, he uses tons and tons of different things to create a ton of different sounds. His set is made up to acoustic drums as well as electric drums to create an endless amount of sounds.

Peart is way better than any other drummer ever and he continues to get better. Every tour Rush goes on includes something new into his solos. He just continues to expand his drumming abilities as he goes on and on.

And just a side note, Peart is 58 years old, and he is still playing tour after tour and Rush is coming out with a new album again, their 19th.

Neil Peart is quite possibly the best drummer ever, along with the best band ever being Rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watching the solo on your recomendation NEW

Good drumming but nothing I'm seeing is enough to solidify him as the number 1 drummer ever. For an amazing solo which blows this away - check our Barriemore Barlow of Jethro Tull solo on Conundrum- not even on this list but Britain's best drummer according to Bonzo.
