241Barry Frosty Smith

When he played with Lee Michaels he was doing things with the drums that still to this day has not been surpassed for the time. Many have emulated him and many have learned from him even if they didn't know of him through others that did.

One of the most respected artists in the industry, the one that other drummers will go to see if he's in their area. He's played on over 60 albums.

Barriemore Barlow is the most underrated drummer, he could be easiily in the top ten.

Eaniel's drumming is sublime and the drums which bring the guitars back in after the breakdown in Nemesis is the best 10 seconds of music ever.

247Ben Johnston

Biffy Clyro's drummer, Ben is able of incredible and amazing things. He's part of the success and the art of one of the best live band in the world.

The most precise and tight drummer I have ever heard. Amazing.

256Abe Cunningham

My favorite drummer. He puts hip-hop grooves into metal and makes it work. He has a very unique style and my favorite Deftones drum songs are One Weak, Birthmark, My Own Summer (Shove It), Digital Bath, Passenger, Needles And Pins, Hole In The Earth, and You've Seen The Butcher

amazing drummer... I challenge anyone to listen to rx queen or feiticeira and tell me different

Very solid. His drumming is an underrated aspect of the band. You can tell he puts his hand into it.

He's one of the best rock/glam drummer of his era. he supposed to be the #2 because he plays jazz and slow rock

Jacob armen is the young Buddy rich and by far the most talented drummer i've heard since then. He's a prodigy, check em out on Youtube, and you'll see what I mean

I think you missed this one pall...
Best one I've ever seen, I don't know bout you guys think... But this man had everything what drummer supposed to be... Skill, rythmic, Speed, Harmonics, Dynamics, what else... You Know What...? This guy should be at least on Top Three position...
