Your not the biggest fan of Alex or Neil Peart. Two of my top three favorite drummers and biggest influences. My favorite ( not the BEST in the world, thats a huge statment ) drummer has always been Gregg Bissonette. To say " The Top" what do you mean? In your oppinion or drummers that are more "Technical". Most people know how versitle Gregg is and that he is a great all around player. But there are still drummers that can do what he cant in some styles. Does not mean I would like him any less.
Just curious what "The Top" means to you.
