Re: Neil Peart
IMO I see that Neil has IMPROVED as he's gotten older and probably wiser. His "groove quotient" has improved and his chops have gotten more precise and clean.
It used to bug me when they would go from one section of a tune to the next it would change tempo, speed AND feel.
I like the smoother way they've matured at the segues and changes by grabbing both ends and pulling them to straighten them out a bit. (if you know what I mean)
