While Gibson may be known for guitars, that hasn't stopped them from reaching out into other musical areas. Accordingly, a new section of their website discusses the Top 10 Rock Drummers of All Time where Neil Peart came in at the #2 spot:2. Neal Peart (Rush)Taking the top spot is, not surprisingly, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin which makes Neil the #1 Living Rock drummer of all time.
Drummer and lyricist for Rush, Neal Peart is hailed in many circles as the quintessential rock drummer. He’s known for his ingenious drum parts and intense solos with lead passages that rock hard and prove the drums, indeed, can be a lead instrument. No Rush concert is complete without Peart’s sparking, obligatory drum solo, and his syncopated drumming style certainly has its own distinct sound and aura. You can always tell when it’s Peart playing.
You can check out the entire Top 10 list via this LINK.
