Heck no, Neil is the best ever. That's a fact, jack.
Just kidding...well not really, but yea Im kidding. I love Neil's playing and he seems like a great guy.
The rest of your post was good and made great points.
I like Neil because he has always been committed to his band. Many other 'elite drummers' are nothing more than hired hands, basically glorified session players. Neil has always been about his band.
