Re: Neil Peart
Yes he is a machine, but like someone else said, that detracts from his playing. He's a great drummer, perhaps too great? hehe
Also, Live in Rio, man it was hard to watch him play...He looks like a 90 year old man fighting through arthritis.
I also don't share the same 'verve' Neil does for drum electronics. I heard him say something like electronics are the best thing ever, because you have every sound available....that's a slippery slope, because the next step is Pro Tools and a drum machine. How much would that suck to see Peart diminished to a Pro Tools engineer and drum machine sequencer?
