Neil Peart's third consecutive victory as Drummer Of The Year in Enter Music Publishing's Drummies Awards is featured In DRUM! Magazine's August, 2009 issue.


Peart also won the Best Progressive Drummer award. Enter Music Publishing 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.


Peart's Popularity is A Rush of Publicity


Peart's success, in part, results from his innovative, progressive approach to drumming, which is a hit with drummers in all demographics. Emails sent in from the Peart fan population indicate his following online and off.


According to publisher Phil Hood, "Peart's success probably stems from the resurgence of Rush's popularity over the same time period that he has won the Drummies. There's no doubt that Rush's hyperdrive back into mainstream success has propelled Peart to these victories."

Travis Freakin Barker?!?!?!?!?!


He can't polish Neils cymbals.

Oh yeah...........he lived and got burned in the plane crash last year, but,.......................oh yeah, he has tattoos, and is actually kind of fast, but,......................oh yeah, he used to nail Shanna Molaker.


Joey Jorgenson can smoke TB with his left foot alone. Why didn't he make the list????

Demographics- sounds to me like the demographics are skewed towards the 18-26 crowd therefore Travis Barker chalking up 3 wins.
