Neil Peart makes Gibson's Top 10 Rock Drummers of All Time list

Tue, May 31, 2011@1:37PM | comments removed/disabled posted their list of the The Top 10 Rock Drummers of All Time to their website earlier today. Rush's Neil Peart made the list at #2 second only to legendary Led Zeppelin sticks-man John Bonham. Here's what they had to say:

Drummer and lyricist for Rush, Neal Peart is hailed in many circles as the quintessential rock drummer. He's known for his ingenious drum parts and intense solos with lead passages that rock hard and prove the drums, indeed, can be a lead instrument. No Rush concert is complete without Peart's sparking, obligatory drum solo, and his syncopated drumming style certainly has its own distinct sound and aura. You can always tell when itís Peart playing.

Thanks to Power Windows for the heads up.
