Readers of Prog magazine name Neil Peart as the best-ever prog musician.
The magazine had a shortlist of just under 250 figures from the prog world, from which fans were encouraged to vote in an online poll – and it was Peart who came out on top.
“Obviously it’s very fitting that Neil Peart’s been voted the Greatest Prog Musician ever by the readers of Prog Magazine, given that he sadly passed away this year,” says Prog magazine Editor Jerry Ewing. “But he’s long been seen as a master of his profession for five decades now, and as the tributes from his peers in the new issue show, this is a more than deserving accolade.
“The poll attracted our biggest ever vote – over 80,000 votes – so people take this stuff very seriously. The poll throws up more than its fair share of surprises but I think it’s good to see it’s not just the original old guard taking the prime positions. The influx of younger artists across more recent generations shows a healthy and broad range of age groups attracted by the music.”
