The 25 Best Rock Drummers Of All-Time

2. Neil Peart (Rush)

It’s been said nobody other than Peart can play the complex music of prog-rock giants Rush. Though technically sound and amazingly creative, what’s perhaps most impressive about Peart is that he makes it look easy. Not to mention, he’s a great showman who has always been humble about his talent. He’s a perfectionist, who always was – and is – willing to learn. There are obviously many Rush songs that exemplify Peart’s greatness, but “YYZ” and “La Villa Strangiato” are an ideal introduction.
