Bruford. Just for being in that 1972-1974 era of King Crimson.

Bill Bruford, possibly my favourite drummer of all time. Peart was good but Bill was great.

Bruford - so much more delicacy and grace. Not even close. But then again, I've liked the Bruford era of most of the bands he's been in - never been much of a Rush fan.

I way way way prefer the music that Bruford has made but I like the sound and technique of Peart much more.

Peart was great at what he did, but he was no Bruford.

Neither of them have ever done anything I'd cross the street to spit on if it were smouldering, but Peart likes Ayn Rand, so fuck him.

Peart by the thinnest of margins, because i have loved Rush since i was 12. Bruford's playing on songs like Larks Tongues In Aspic Pt.1 is unreal though.

Neil Peart's drumming at its most complex is hard to replicate. Bill Bruford's drumming at its most complex is virtually impossible to even conceive.

But even beyond the degree of difficulty, Bruford is a lot more fun, more playful, constantly surprising. Peart plays these complex, detailed orchestral percussion parts note for note every night, no surprises allowed. He's like a machine, and it IS impressive.

Bruford is constantly improvising, playing hopscotch around these insane charts with shifting time signatures. That's the fun of King Crimson live tapes - Bruford and Fripp going off script, even when the script is AWFULLY specific.

Peart is wonderful drummer but he's not one of my favorites. it's sort of like Joe Satriani on guitar - of course he's good but it doesn't really move me.
something about Bruford's playing has always appealed to me. Chris Cutler is my favorite but Bruford is near the top. Like Cutler it has a melodic quality to it. Even when Fripp would make him play electric pads with one hand tied behind his back it sounds like music made by humans for humans

Bruford -prefer his technique, style and just his all around ideas. Also Bruford was in two great bands that we love along with numerous side projects and solo stuff all excellent. Peart is complex and has extremely good technique but not much a fan of his ideas and sounds.

As the token Canadian BCBer, even I vote for Bruford. His style is way more organic than Peart's robo drumming. I like Peart, but this is no contest.

I'm an enormous Rush fan (in much the same way as people who like Alice Cooper/Aerosmith/Cheap Trick/Van Halen/KISS tend to be describing a HIGHLY specific era of the group's work), and Peart's playing is an enormous part of that (the strutting breakbeat at the very top of "Tom Sawyer" is the type of idea most rock drummers would kill for...and, yeah, I like the lyrical nature of the fills...especially when orchestrated in unison with the bass and/or guitar)

BUT

there is something deeply nimble and unorthodox about Bruford (and his always sufficiently heavy "lightness of touch") that I can't bring myself to vote against.
