    Neil is widely considered one of the greatest rock drummers ever to have lived, and many people would say the best, period.
    Here he is in action on one of their signature songs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrhnhXHVSQg
    Another affectionate nickname I've heard people use for him was the "human metronome."
    You really ought to broaden your horizons to include Rush's music, now that they're retired.

    Thanks. I didn't click on the link. I'm sure you don't mind; nobody tells me who or what to listen to.

    Ha ha I'm sure he was just trying to be helpful, you did ask after all. Had no idea who he was myself but I have heard of the band though and he is clearly a skilled and respected musician, sometimes recommends from folks on here can be a pleasant surprise I have found.
    Take it easy mate.

    Given the obvious contraianism, I suppose I should have suggested not listening to them.
    We all just know that taking in a five-minute clip to better understand something is just too much of a heavy lift.

    WTF is with you, man? This is just a straight up rude comment to make when someone is trying to help you after you specifically asked a question regarding this man.
