Wagtherush posted: “I would say all of the ’80s! I’m no drummer but to me, that’s the most complex and exciting time for the band, due to all the new tech and toys they all got. I mean, no eighties, no double kit!!! Lol.”
Jdgaidin12 responded: “He hit a point of perfection by Power Windows and into Presto. So there’s one, I would say. But even he though he was too rehearsed, too robotic. Enter Freddy Gruber. Changed his style and his sound. For post-Gruber prime, I have to say S&A. The studio setup, the production, and the technicality with a groove. Peak, to me. But I’m no drummer, just an admirer.”
Neil Peart dropped this Rush tour bombshell recently. Watchdogforkittens simply said: “I would say from the fertilization of the egg in his mother’s womb right up until about this morning…and beyond.”
