Re: Neil Peart
Has anyone purchased the new Rush Replay X3 DVD?
Three concerts from long ago.
Neil is a great, great drummer. Being a somewhat new drummer, I didn't really pay attention to him in the past.
I really believe that back in the 80s and early 90s he played fantastic. Noticably better than now. He also showed more emotion behind the kit back then.
Portnoy is the new Peart. However, I believe that he lacks some of the technical skills that Peart has. Peart is neater and cleaner. However, I feel Portnoy has a bit more feel or groove. And I am not bashing Portnoy. I really enjoy his playing as well.
Either way, I highly recommend the new DVD set. Great stuff.
