I don't particularly dislike Gavin Harrison - that's my exception.

Really? You don't like Geddy Lee's bass playing? Say what you will about about Neil's drumming or lyrics; Geddy's voice, or his and Alex's songwriting (as I often do myself), but strictly as a bass player, Geddy's one of my all-time faves.

Gavin's not too shabby, either!

He's a good player but he really doesn't do it for me.

Just saw Rush last year and for as much people love or hate Rush, anyone can easily tell Geddy is one of the best out there. Alex is my all-time favorite guitarist. Man is he just wow, awesome. Actually, Peart is probably the weak link in the band at this point. He look old and tired (forgive me Neil...you do). Out of shape.

Absolutely! For as much as I partook in the idolatry of NP back in the early '80s, I feel the same way about the band now: only flashes of cool in the songwriting, but Alex's guitar playing and Geddy's bass playing have at last won me over to where they're far and away my favorite elements in that band, and some of my favorite players around too boot... while Neil seems to be coasting through the last half of his career despite the Gruber / Erskine lessons.

(30 years ago how the drums would flow with passion and precision / But now his mind is dark and dulled by stiffness and indecision).

Come on guys, when Sticks sees this he's going to have an aneurysm when he writes his reply.
S4D knows I'll always be a dyed-in-the-wool NP fan. There's nothing he can possibly do now to ever undo what I consider to be great and brilliant drumming during his first 10 years with Rush.

Doesn't mean his statue in my backyard will still get a fresh gold plating every year, though.

Its all good. I am slowly learning that everyone is allowed their own opinion on here. I figured I should grow up some time. Mike has given me some tough love to help me along. I am 47 after all. I am running out of time. :)

I always loved Ray with Bass pedal and keyboards, how could he do that the same time, quite talented!

Ray - Bass Pedal.Keyboards, vocals
Keith Moon- Drums, vocals
Buddy Guy- Guitar Vocals

(If Buddy and Ray could afford Moon's unpredicatble playing, may not last but give it a try :))

Hmm.. This is harder than expected, there are so many great players.
I won't necessarily call this ultimate, too many choices, but here is something I would love to hear:

Carmine Appice drums
Billy Sheehan bass
Jan Akkerman guitar
Dave Grohl vox & guitar
