Re: Neil Peart
You bring up interesting points and I enjoyed reading your post. Why do you think Carl Palmer was the Peart of his era? I am not that familiar with Carl's playing other than radio hits. I ask this because I could sort of hear similarities in both players too.
I think the Burning for Buddy was more "money talks" because Modern Drummer wrote something like "only Peart had the financial ability to pull of such a project" out of any other drummer. Must be cool to be so rich from playing drums you could hire many of the best out there to play on your project. What do any of you think?
Give me a liter of cola.
