A drummer!

Anyway, Spiral Architect's drummer is really good. I would say the battle for the next Peart is between Portnoy and Spiral Architect's

mm yes you can...he is amazing of course i agree to that, but you cant reely compare him to some other drummers in terms of who is better than who. for me peart is one of the best in his style...for ex. chris pennie of DEP play much more ferociously but at the same time just as technical, peart could probably never do some of the stuff he does, and vise versa for someone like john theodore

But Chris Pennie of DEP has no melody, I saw DEP and the band as a whole totally, totally SUCKED!

To say that Neil Peart lacks "an overwhelming amount of technique" is,at best,ridiculous and at worst,an embarrassing thing for you to write.
You hardly know the band,yet sit in judgement like an expert. Check out the band's bio and MP3s before spouting this tripe.

or at least add a "" or a ""

Another good reason to nominate Portnoy is because like Peart, he has great songwriting ability. We should be evaluating candidates on not only drumming technique (which is still very important), but also other musical abilities such as songwriting, composing, singing, or whatever. Which reminds me, Portnoy isn't to shabby at backup vocals.

Yea, I agree there. Some of his musical creations like SFAM and SDOIT are some of the finest I've ever heard or seen in Progressive music history!

unfortunately, Billy Cobham, Philly, Carl Palmer and Aierto Moreira are all older than Neil Peart.

besides wasn't Aierto mostly just a percussionist with Weather Report and Miles Davis?

Their actual drummers did stomp some ass.

The next Peart? Hmm...

Zoltan Czarz from The Flower Kings (sort of)

Danny Carey from Tool

Tim Alexander from Primus

Mike Portnoy from DT

I like Nick D'Virgillo (sp?) from Spock's Beard on the Albums before Feel Euphoria

Pat Mastelotto (just kidding)

Mark Zonder is Fates Warning's drummer, or at least was.

I hope that's sarcasm

I am not a drummer either- you have to watch him to see what all the hype is about. Amazing

Rush overated - ergo Peart overated.

What's all this about YYZ? Is he only famous for one track on an overated album?

what?!?! have you ever listened to his work with a CRITIC EAR? Peart is a GREAT drummer, he ALWAYS astonishes me, in every single song I hear. He's so passionate and so precise at the same time, he has one of the best drum sounds I've ever heard, so clean and so powerful, technical but with warmth. He may not be the BEST drummer in the world but he IS among the greatest.

Rush overrated? don't see how...
