Bonham's cool, and all... But I'm sorry, he's not an essential drummer. Neil Pert is pretty mind-blowing, on the other hand.

I've never seen Bonham as anything special, Peart is definitely better, seeing as how he, as you say, "has the biggest drum set and uses every drum." The fact that he uses every drum/percussion instrument on his set and uses them well makes him better.

I prefer Neil Peart. He really goes out of the way to learn his instrument to its fullest. Even how great he is, he's never shied away from learning. Just in 2000-ish, he completely changed over his drumming technique with a drum instructor to more of a jazz based background. That to me is one thing that makes a musician great. They never rest on their lorals, always striving to be better than what they are, even after being named arguably the best drummer of all and putting out over 15 studio albums. (his lyrics are awesome as well).
New Rush album in 2007! Can't wait!

Its really close, but I think that overall, Peart is probably the better drummer.

I would compare this thread to like....Hendrix vs. Yngwie...and frankly, even if Yngwie plays circles around Jimi, Jimi has that trancendant-from god-hits you right in the balls kind of thing going. I appreciate that. Bonham is the Jimi Hendrix of drums. Period. That's this thing>.

Peart, absolutely no doubt. Bonham is an amazing drummer, but I mean he's no Neil. You could maybe compare Buddy Rich to "the professor" but I don't think Bonham could oust him.
