    Peart is undeniably one of the most astounding rock drummers around and for a trio, they create an amazing sound. Only have a handful of albums to go by (Farewell To Kings, Presto, Hold Your Fire, and mp3s from 2112). The R30 DVD is one of the best live performances I've seen in a long time (apart from seeing - and meeting - Yes in Melbourne in 03 of course!).

    I can understand Lee's voice grating on some. It does take a bit of getting used to. He reminds me of David Surkamp (Pavlov's Dog) but Lee's voice definitely has more definition.

    This YouTube link came up on another forum recently

    Lee's voice is an acquired taste. He's a stylist, for sure. Peart makes that band. Heard their first album? They sounded more like Zeppelin than what they became the instant Peart joined. Being a drummer, the instant I heard him, I stopped dead in my tracks. He remains one of my favorites and really, the reason I hate doing drum solos. I mean, really, he does such a good one the world is not poorer because I usually don't do them!

    I must say, I like Lee's voice better now that it's a bit lower!

    i think rush is one of the greatest rock bands ever . Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater played in a Rush tribute band ... surely this influenced his drumming in DT.

    Yes, playing Rush can't hurt your chops. Whenever a drummer plays a lot of notes, there's a need for articulation otherwise it's just a mash of sound. I'm glad I'm in a Genesis tribute and not a Rush tribute - so much to remember!! Phil didn't play the parts the same every night (lucky me!)
