Best Rock Drummers

This man is incredible. He's 100% self taught yet he destroys in all drum tracks he's laid down for story of the year. He's beyond incredible, especially live, and you can just see the passion as he plays. He doesn't get enough credit in my opinion
Janet Weiss is one of the best drummers have you heard "Bury our Friends or Oxygen"(Sleater Kinney) she rocks when it come to drumming
I always felt he was an excellent drummer. Amazing and infectious drum fills. Because of Styx's style, he played a dynamic style, sometimes thunderous and Moon-eqsue and other times soft and tasteful. He brought a sense of charm to so many songs. RIP John.
Has a strange way of playing but at the same time is very dinamic. He just beats the hell out everything he has around him, he and singer Sully Erna have greatest drum battle ever seen check out the DVD Changes you won't be disappointed.
The most creative drummer I have ever seen & heard is timing is always spot on. His drums always sound great live & in the studio. Not to many can play 13 minute songs live for 10 months. One of the greatest ever.

I wish that people wouldn't factor in history when voting or submitting favorites. The best means the best. Past and present. If somebody sets a record and the record is broken, the current record holder gets the title. Sure, Neil was absolutely incredible in the 70s and 80s. As was Bonham, and weckl, and Buddy rich before them. It's all about breaking barriers. Clearly no research was done, otherwise this absolute master, Matt Garstka, would be in the top 5. I doubt even polyrythm titans like Portnoy could hold a torch to matt. Every facet of drumming technique and skill has been mounted and mastered by Matt Garstka. The Albert Einstein of drumming if you will. Please folks, do some research. It's a wonder all three Matt's don't hold top 10 spots: greiner, happen, and garstka. If you don't care to learn whose setting the bar, then drums is not the instrument for you to take up. Never stop learning.
Matt is only 441 spots far from his earned position. Matt is easily right now one of the 10 best drummers of the world. Amazing creativity, accuracy, versatility...Please give AAL a listen and focus on Matt Garstka. He blew my mind and I've been a drummer for a long time.
The drummer of Animals as Leaders. I can't believe my ears when I hear him play. He has the most outstanding accuracy and style I've ever heard. Give him a listen.
