When a musician has entered their prime, it's usually fair to say that they are the best that they're going to be in their lifetime. For some, it's a prolific period of innovation and fruitfulness.

I tend to think that it's unfair to rank artists. There is no 'best' when the criteria are subjective and almost entirely imaginary. Attempts to quantify the greatness of one artist will ultimately diminish the efforts of other equally talented individuals. To get metaphysical... In a forest of identical trees, the one closest to you always seems to be the biggest.

Justin Tyson is a very good drummer. I look forward to hearing his work over the next decade or two. It's great that he inspires you.

If it's unfair for the other drummers to say that JT is the most talented, we can say he's the most original, skilled and creative.
