IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CREDITING NEIL PEART ON YOUR MUSIC PROJECTS: You must credit the use of Neil Peart's grooves in your music in a way that conveys it is from a Sonic Reality sample library and not as if he played drums on your song. An example that would be okay is "Featuring Neil Peart Drums by Sonic Reality" An example that would not be okay is "Drums by Neil Peart". You can alternatively not credit the drums at all. But if you want to use Neil Peart's name it must be "Neil Peart Drums by Sonic Reality". If you have any questions you can contact support (at) sonicreality (dot) com.
Alan White - Not many drummers can span everything from the accessible, solid, pop sounds of John Lennon to the mixed time signatures, frenetic tempo variations and dynamic overtures of Yes.

He played with Lennon on his successful "Imagine" album, with George Harrison on "All Things Must Pass," and has been the driving heartbeat of Yes since 1972. Great grooves in 7/4, 7/8, 5/4 and 9/4.
