Not by me. It seems to be true though. I think guys that may not be in to or influenced by him discover guys that do the most extreme independence/speed/time changes and say, This drummer is better then Neil. He's over rated. But take a guy like Jeff Porcaro. He is known for having incredible feel and his shuffle. I don't think Jeff could have played what Virgil can or play like Vinnie can. BUT Jeff gets recognition for the drummer HE was, NOT the drummer that A, B or C is. Its just not that way w/Neil for some reason. People want to rip him up for what he has not done that others have. Just don't get it.
