Best Rock Drummers « see full list

Ian Paice


He can be top ten drummer. One of my favourite one. Watch his drum solo "Live in California". He ever played drum solo with London Philharmonic Ochestra in early 80s. But one think funny is that when look at "animal"who play drum in the "muppet show" has the same syle as Ian Paice.
Ian Paice has it all. Technique, speed, agility, swing and such confidence in his playing. The way he works a snare and single bass drum technique is fantastic. He should definitely be at or near the top of the list.
Best rock and roll drummer ever. IN 1978 HE WAS 20 YEAR A HEAD of his time. He play from the heart.
Ian is extremely talented as a drummer. He is able to perform a single handed drum roll which he in fact made famous/invented. Able to make brilliant drum solos even back in the day it surprises me on how talented he is. He is a major part to the success of Deep Purple.
When you start looking at lists like this it gets annoying because there are only 5 top 5 spots and theres so many people who should be filling one of those, Ian is definitely the man for one of those positions.
Ian should be near the top. He is amazing! Of course, there are a lot of good drummers, but listen to DP live and how he is pushing and interacting during the solo's from Blackmore and Lord.
Listen to his solo intro to "Fireball"... if that were the only shining example of his talent it would be enough... but he is the core reason why Deep Purple rocked so hard on every song.
Fantastic drummer gives a lot above it a challenge not all cause lets face it some above are flawless. The style and skill of Paice should be noted and he shouldn't be 23 more like 12 at least.
What, the best drummer of all time is ranked #53. Come on people bring it up. He should be at least in top 5. COME ON!
i dont think anyone recognizes what ian is capable of..i think he not only should be top 10 but also no. 1
Should be in top ten. Hear Speed King, Women from Tokyo and Space Trucking. Then jugde 4 yourself...
Deep Purple began in 1968 and Ian Paice is the only drummer they ever needed. Enough said.
Can't believe he is out of the best 10!
Highly underrated drummer, versatile and, at times, almost lyrical.
The driving force behind one of the greatest hard rock band.
The beating heart of one of the greatest rock bands ever, wonderful interplay with Lord and Böackmore. Definitely in the top 10.
Yes! Ian is sooooooo good! He is a heavy drummer.
Ian Paice is the best rock drummer of the world!
The best drummer of the history of the Rock!
Very good and steady in decades
Best rock drummer of all time
