He had 2 -18s pre Rush . JR Flood eraNo he didn't.
He started out with two 22", then switched to dual 24" in 1977, then back to a single 22" in 91, then a single 23" in 2006, then double 23" in 2015
He had an 18" on the rear-facing electronic kit, but never on his main "rock" drums
Tim Alexander (Primus) did use dual 18s for "Sailing the Seas of Cheese", before switching to 20" for "Pork Soda"
I agree with Houndog in that something like a 22/13/16 (or the 24 bass) would be more of my choice for a heavier rock type of thing (if one had that choice available), but you could still make the smaller drums work. 22” is plenty to rock though…think Keith Moon, Phil Rudd…Of course any sizes will work , but in my opinion and I believe that at least 75% of Hard Rock - Blues was played on 22/13/16 or a 24” bass drum .
But any sizes will work , they all kinda sound like drums , and if you are playing miced up most of the time do whatever .
But the essence of the music is 22/13/16 and also a vintage style or vintage kit …
