Best Drummer's All Time, Past, Present: Let the Beat's Begin!
I am probably a little older than many on the board but I have been going to Rush concerts since 1976 ("Fly By Night Tour") and have seen them 28 times. Loved Neil as a rock drummer. But over the past 10-15 years I have ventured into contemporary jazz. Generally speaking these guys are far better musicians. Take a rock musician and put him in a jazz setting and they are pretty uncomfortable but take a jazz musician and put them in a rock setting and they are very comfortable (because that's probably where they started).
It's all debatable but I would say Antonio Sanchez is the best drummer on the planet at the moment. Look him up and you will see why. Dave Weckl comes to mind as well. I read an interview with Neil Peart a few years back where he fully acknowledged that jazz drummers were on a whole nother level.
If drum solos bore you at least speed up toabout the 4:20 mark. Fricken' incredible.....
