Geddy Lee and Neil Peart of Rush have been voted as the greatest rhythm section according to MusicRadar.

The music journalist is currently holding voting for the greatest rockstars at each position and to no surprise two thirds of Rush is already there. While slots for guitar, vocals, and keyboard are still open, whatever imaginary supergroup this might form is certainly going to be an interesting one.

According to MusicRadar the voting for drummers went like this: Second place John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Buddy Rich in third, Ginger Baker fourth and Keith Moon rounding out the top 5.

The bass voting yielded similarly worthy names: Jaco Pastorius came in second, with The Who‘s John Entwistle in third, then Victor Wooten, and finally Paul McCartney in fifth.

Do you think Peart and Geddy deserve this spot at number one?

 

Win!
