Best Drummers Ever

Recommended Posts

Bonham helped create a great sound with Zeppelin, no denying that, but he would've gone nowhere if it weren't for Keith Moon's influence.

Neil Peart is very fast, and very technically flawless, but I just end up bored by him most times..

I prefer Manu Katche, who drums for Peter Gabriel, and Ian Mosely of Marillion when I want to listen to good percussion. I'm not a big fan of just fast and tight, I'd rather listen to a darn good beat with a good amount of flair and ghosted notes...

An honorable mention for Buddy Rich.

No doubt! He is the greatest jazz drummer in history!!

When I first saw him on the Tonight Show (circa 1979)

I sat there with my jaw hangin' wide open!! :drummer:

Was wondering if you or anyone has seen Burning for Buddy? A collaboration by some of the greatest drummers as a tribute for Rich. It was organized by Neil Peart, probably one of Rich's biggest fans.

DALE CROVER of the Melvins. He's amazing for being able to stay in sync with Buzz Osbourne's off-beat rythyms.

*Also if you live anywhere near Baltimore, MD, check out the drummer for The Medications. I don't know his name, but he's an amazing preformer with tons of energy.*

your crazy, bonham will never be remembered as a drummmer. he complements but doesnt explore. danny carey is the most influential and complementary drummer that explores to an infinite expense. listen to tool and it will all come together.

I've begun to really like Don Alias. Joey Castillo (QOTSA) and Rick McMurray (Ash) are worth a mention too. I'm really happy someone else mentioned The Mars Volta's drummer- he is brilliant on occasions.

What about Mick Fleetwood?
