Gibson Guitar Ranks Rush 2nd Best Rock Rhythm Section of All Time
Gibson guitar has posted their Top 10 list of the greatest Drum ’n’ Bass: Rock Rhythm Sections of all time.Bass and drums are often the unsung heroes of rock and roll.

At Gibson.com, we simply can’t get enough of that cascading cannon-style drum sound, and little competes with a flawlessly executed, funky slap-and-pop bassline. It’s the rhythm section’s time to take the spotlight!Canadian power trio Rush gained a following thanks to their virtuoso instrumentals and radio-friendly progressive rock style.

It’s Lee’s attention to bass grooves and vocal melodies and his perfect fit with drummer Neil Peart – who, consequently, is to praise for much of Rush’s songwriter – that makes this ranking a no-brainer.You can check out the entire Top 10 list via this LINK.
