Default Re: Neil Peart

I dont understand the obsession with polyrhythms and stickings and blah blah blah.
In the real world if you are hired to play a session or audition for a band, I got news for you,
other musicians could give a flying F^%$$ about that stuff. Our job as a drummer is to keep time and add flavor to the music. I don't think playing 5 over 4 will go over well in most music settings. unless you want to get fired. Dave Weckl played on a song called like a virgin from madonna, Dave is one of the best drummers out there, but he played what was called for.
