Saw Jesse Malin's StrummerJam tribute to Joe Strummer last night at the Bowery Ballroom in NY. Kilerr show. Tommy Stinson kicked the tribute portion w a great "Hateful". HR did an excellent job on "Police & Thieves". So...listening to lots of Joe Strummer & the Clash.
Neil Peart is a great drummer and I like his lyrics as well. I don't want to go in a debate, but I prefer the drumming of Neil and I think he's very 'musical'. Neil's drumming always fits and accentuates the lyrics as well.
That is your opinion. I have heard people say that about Rush before. I get it. But that's not my opinion.
I am a musician, and I think they are very 'musical'. Rush is not for everyone, but if you get it it is really good. It's not like "de do do do, de da da da", or like "coo coo cachoo", but it is good. They do their own thing, they always have done.
Rush, you hate them or you love them. A bit like Bukowski.
