Best rock drummer dead at 67 from brain tumor.

He was a great one, no doubt. You will hear people say that all the best rock drummers are jazz drummers, and that’s a horse race. There was a guy named Richie Hayward who played a long time in what many people thought was a rock band, but Hayward was much more than just a rock drummer. We lost him too soon, too. I’ve seen and heard some great rock drumming from Steve Ferrone and from Danny Cummings, too, and a few others. I think it’s Peart’s precision that puts him up there at the pinnacle with folks who call him the greatest. The people who idolize Bonham or Moon will fight you tooth and nail.
