The Top TenXW
My number one. Ticks And Leeches is great, but La Villa Strangiato is a true masterpiece. The use of the hi-hat is genius and the mini-drum solos are spectacular. It is Neil Peart, the greatest drummer ever, at his best so it has to be number one and where the heck is 21st Century Schizoid Man by King Crimson! - Crazydudewithabeard
Rush is awesome. And Peart's skills showed in this masterpiece are amazing.
Peart has refined drumming to an art, and if people paid for a drum solo like they did a painting, Van Gohs would be obsolete because of this piece.
Danny Carey is pretty insane to take this on, but he does it perfectly! - moose4life19
the solo in the beginning is amazing an very difficult throughout the siong - Okami
danny hits the toms over 1000 times in this song and thats a fact. - evilchimpmunk
John Bonham is best drum ever. I can't imagine he is 8th in the list.V1 Comment
This is a great example of Keith Moon's extraordinary stle of play and exemplifies the energy and style that emulates rock. It is simply unreproducable!V1 Comment
The best drum intro ever probably - the way Travis plays it throughout the 6-minute song with such intensity, also the double-kicking is impressive! - petrucci75hammet
The best drum performance ever very few people can play this song especially the intro
2112 is a masterpiece! All instrument are awesome in this song, I mean Rush is awesome!
This should probably be the standard "10" to which other drumming performances could be compared.
Most insane drum solo ever. An all around amazing song period
very fast and complex beat of drums, the true metal sound - ronluna
... And many more, including all dead and white feathers (15 L'anniversary)
