Wednesday’s Toy-Based Prog Rock

August 20th, 2008 at 7:39 am by Preston Taylor Holmes

The Neil Peart drum solo was too short for my tastes, though.

H/t to E.N., which I would have posted yesterday, if I thought he was still a regular. Jackball.

    Best Band, Evar!…

    Yes, it’s absolutely true. Beer and toy musical instruments will definitely lead to awesomeness like this:

    I’ll be on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out which beer company is going to sign these guys for their next marketing campaign. …

    [...] out which beer company is going to sign these guys for their next marketing campaign. (Big h/t to Preston Taylor Holmes@SMB) Oh yeah—For those of you who are amongst what we like to refer to as "The Young," [...]

    I used to have a running argument with a friend: Who was better, Peart or ELP’s Greg Lake? Since I realized years ago arguing music was pointless I won’t tell you that I said Lake.

    :smile: Love this!

  5. Yiddish Steel Says:

    Michael,

    You were trying to compare a drummer/percussionist to a bass player?! That argument was ponderous, man, ponderous! You might have made a better case if you tried to compare Carl Palmer with Neil Peart. Buddy Rich is/was the be all; end all drummer.

  6. Michael Silence Says:

    Yes, I meant Palmer. Having seen them three times you’d think I’d know better. Aging sucks.

    Fantastic Pres. I’m sure it takes more talent than one would think to do that.

    BTW, for pure rock drumming goodness, you can’t do much better than Keith Moon. But Peart is perfection IMHO.

    Here’s my blonde (or is it red? I’ll have to check) review of that kind of rock: It confuses me. I can never understand how they do all that starty stoppy stuff.

  9. Donna Locke Says:

    Second the flamed-out but inspired Keith Moon, who forgot how to drum when he wasn’t drumming and had to practice right before a concert.
