Im saying that neil peart is a better drummer only because he was a huge groundbreaker for progressive rock, and drumming in general

Before I opened this post I could have guessed every answer given here. To me, its a race to see ho can give the deep insightful answer first sometimes, so Im going to go way off the beaten path with my answer.

First of all im choosing Peart. Let me also say that, with exception of a few songs, I think Rush isn't that good. I mean their good, but their more math than music. And im not discrediting Moon's music or contribution to later generations, but as for who can hold two sitcks and hit them against drums? Its Peart. To go back to Jr.'s post, I'll agree with his fianal analogy, except that Moon didn't use all the crayons.

While it could be said that Moon did amazing designes with red blue and yellow, he never touched green, black, and orange. While I do think its fair to say Moon did what he wanted, I don't think its fair to say he did it all. I don't even know that he could if he wanted to.

Dude im totally disagreeing with your statement on Rush's music not being good...That was one of the dumbest thing ive ever heard about them being more about math than music...Thats just Fcked and also, by the way how can it be more about math than music...you can tell the creativity that went into there music...and every progressive band for that matter,.

Not all creativity is feeling though is it? I think Big3 has said this, along with many others, before. Just because it is progressive and creative doesn't make it fun to listen to. It has to be about the music not how far they can push the complexity of music.

If this was the case then progressive bands would be wiping their arse with bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam for not being as "technically creative".

And that is rubbish. Theres creativity and then theres creativity.

You do realise that Progressive Rock has been around long before Rush, right?

Oh for fuck sake! ^

I have an afternoon off work, so I'm thinking (check out MB).

Why did I bother?

Watching Keith Moon play makes me want to break things
Watching Neil Peart makes me want to take a nap.

Technicality is overrated , you could get a computer to do that these days , I want entertainment.
