The only difference is he's in huge band that's been huge for a long time and they're not.
So what if they all blow him away? does that mean peart isnt very good? Drummers such as weckl and wackerman in most peoples eyes are much better than peart, but that doesnt mean they wud be better rock drummers than peart. I consider gadd to be the best in the world, but that does not mean i think he wud do a better job as a rock drummer. he is definitly over rated but not as much as you think.
