Rush's Neil Peart Beats Blink-182's Travis Barker For Drummer Of The Year Honor

(Blabbermouth) Rush drummer Neil Peart has garnered his third consecutive victory as "Drummer Of The Year" in this year's Drummies. He was also named "Best Progressive Drummer."

Enter Music Publishing, publishers of hip, drum magazines worldwide, conducts the Drummies every year, with voting open to anyone from February to May. This year, 5,310 votes were cast in 41 drum/percussion categories ranging from "Best Drummer" to "Best Drum Advertisement."

While Peart has successfully demonstrated his popularity in the last three Drummies, his margin of victory was less than in the last two years, according to Phil Hood, publisher and co-founder of DRUM! magazine. Runner-up Travis Barker gave Peart a serious run and had been the most frequent winner (three victories) prior to Peart's popularity. Thus, Barker remains a very influential, popular drummer as well.
