Re: Neil Peart
I have to say, that was a treat to read. Thanks for the references to check out too. I know radio hits are really never indicative of a drummer's true ability. They play the original cut of "Closer to the Heart" every day on this "rock" station and it drives me nuts.
I will check out Palmer's material. I usually suggest Neil's songs: Tai shan, Territories, Vital signs, Cygnus X-1, Hemispheres, Time Stand Still, The Weapon, The Enemy Within and Scars to really get a sense of Neil's rhythms that he is capable of putting to music and play live in front of thousands.
Give me a liter of cola.
