Neil Peart got 50% of the entire vote. In other news 50% of the voters don’t know the names of any other drummers.

Spare me. All these GOAT proclamations….

I wish they’d just call them FOAT (Favorite Of All Time).

Regardless there is one thing in that piece that really makes me agree that Mr. Peart is OOG (One Of the Greats).

It comes under the heading He Never Stopped Learning.

To have that level of talent and heightened success, yet still strive to get better, that’s really something.

Love Neil but even if you reduce the pool to drummers who had huge sets he is trounced by Billy Cobham, for one.
I’ve not seen a pic of Billy with a bigger kit , got a pic ?

Or do you mean trounced skill wise ?

He’s probably my favorite drummer of all time but there are about a million others I enjoy listening to/watching over him. Too many bad ass drummers out there in the world.

Why is that so hard to understand. Many people out there know Neil because of the great drum sets he has put together over the years. It is not the only reason, but it is a big one.
