At least, not compared to Ringo, or Vinnie, or Tim Alexander (3 of my faves)

his double bass stuff is pretty boring, too

but i guess i'm biased because i hate rush and their over the top cheese flavoured sound... i prefer the cheese you can eat, not the stuff you can listen to, like rush.

I really hate that song The Trees, i hate the metaphor... they take themselves way too seriously, especially in that song (a song like that shouldn't be serious)

And Bravado is another one that rates highly on the suckiness scale to my ears


and they have such a crap, CRAP name!! "Rush" ..?!??!?!!
not that it matters, but still

oh and btw... that's all IMO, so don't call me "wrong"

I wouldn't say that you're wrong, just somewhat limited in your ability to express your thoughts. It's a rare post in this forum that needs to use the word "hate" seven times while discussing a single subject. Oh, plus three uses each of "crap" and "cheese," and one reference to your "suckiness scale." Wow. You're really exposed me to a new way of looking at Neil Peart.
