ha ha! i wasn't bashing Peart's drumming abilities. I paraphrase myself: "Mullen is so very self-effacing (meaning he verbalizes his belief that he is not that good) and therefore puts Peart to shame. (Peart also is self-effacing and has continually put himself under the likes of Stewart Copeland). What I meant is that Mullen is so much more self-effacing that he puts Peart's self-effacing to shame. it's sort of a joke. I've seen Rush every tour since 1988 and I'm well aware of how good Peart is. i wasn't commenting on technique or innovation or reputation or ability . . . i was merely pointing out that Mullen is SUPER humble. thanks though.
