Best Rock Drummers
The Contenders: Page 25
There's a song Van Halen did called "Crossing Over. " It was a B-side of a single in the US, and a bonus track in Japan. On it, he sings and plays ALL the instruments on one channel (can't remember if it's the left or right), and the rest of the band does their thing on the other channel. So, if you pan your speakers to the correct side, you can hear him playing.
Eddie Van Halen plays guitar and piano. Albeit, it's a little known fact that the piano is a percussion instrument, not a string instrument (I play piano) it doesn't make Edward a drummer. It's his brother Alex that is the drummer in the family.

This guy is phenomenal and versatile drummer who makes whole use of his massive drumset. Just check out Dir en grey's song 'VINUSHKA' and you'll know.
Shinya is by far the best drummer in the world. His idol used to be or still is Yoshiki, but it's obvious that Shinya has surpassed even Yoshiki's level of skill. Just seeing Shinya drum, one can immediately tell that he is gifted beyond his years. And just look at how huge & expansive his drum set is! Shinya knows how to use all his equipment to its fullest capacity. ^_^ Shinya is God.
Yeah shinya is very cool and awesome. I am Mongolian. We love you shinya! Gambette!
Shinya is not on the top of this list where he belongs just because the most of the voters simply never heard him drumming! What he does is not just drumming, it is real art beyond any ratings.V 39 Comments
One of the best drummers ever heard in my my life... Tell nico I said hi!
He needs to be up in the top three. He has the fastest hands, the best voice, and the most impressive history of all of the drummers on this list.
Not only a great drummer but also a great singer! He has them all! You rock Deen. - qwin27
He is a awesome and Amazing Drummer he should be on the top of the listV 6 Comments
Has to be one of the best Rock drummers of all time He would stay on stage 20 minutes doing solo's leaving audiences in awe of what he can do with a set of drums, even as a guitarist, He amazed me at what he could do with them.
Lee Kerslake has to be one of the all time greatest. Heavy hitting, musical...shoot he did "CRAZY TRAIN' for Ozzie. The whole group is one of the tightest like Santana a tight group even better live. They've been playing for almost 50 years even through the ups and downs. They are a band's band. Ask Rush, Kiss anyone in the business.
You have to listen to his works to really appreciate what he can do. He should rank a lot higher but as they didn't get as much fame in the states as abroad. Still a huge loyal fan base.
Great rock jazz fusion drummer with the best feel kiss had in the 70s he's solos were simple but effective and had a powerful energy just listen to alive one and two and watch the old 76 Cobal Hall footage he was very good in his day and had a one of a kind style to his playing very underrated drummer!
Peter Criss should not even bee in the top 500. Never a great drummer, but he was good and threw away and wasted most of his talent, He is someone you do not want to be around he is a true bad person who only thinks of himself
Come on! This is PETER CRISS we are talking about!
Drummer of the legendary rock band KISS! The most bad ass drummer ever!
And his jazzy influence only makes him better!
He should be a helluva a lot higher than some of these rejects over here!
He's awesome! #1 if it were up to me
Seriously, this dude was the backbone of the best band of mid to late 70s.V 9 Comments
He plays really cool beat with his drums, he can do an amazing drum solo, also some free solo with his drum with losing his momentum and tone. I didn't know that his from Philippines.
Without a doubt currently the best drummer in the Philippines. Bring back Bamboo!
Buy brand new eyes and listen to Careful and Ignorance. He's amazing sucks that he left
The best drummer ever. He has an amazing amount of energy live and was a huge loss to Paramore when he left
He is just a beast, I've never seen anyone with more energy on stage than him!
Warch him with the Who, better than Moon, sorry, apostacy, but true.
