Neal Peart (above)
Neal seems to be playing Cottontail like a rock song.
he was not as well versed in true jazz feel...the whole Burning For Buddy thing - at least to me - was sort of rough (I am also not a Buddy Rich fan...). I really did not get into the whole thing and I am a huge NP fan...so I will admit that it was weird
but to say that he is a bad drummer who got notoriety for being a good drummer is not right given all he did in the style that he lived in...
even if you don't like him...you have to see what he did do well. For instance, I really don't like John Bonham, or Zeppelin, but I will not deny that they were good at what hey did
