A lot of people would not have heard Meshuggah's music and are able to digest the shear undeniable inventory of rhythm this man has created... A complete, totally unique and ground braking drummer of epic proportion... Tomas Haake has taken a simple 4/4 beat and created the most mathematical equations to blow your brain into separating peices... I think he is a genius and should be recognised for taking rhythm to a place we have never seen before... When talking about greatest drummers of ALL TIME, this man has re-created time and should be recognised as one of the most significant influences of the next many generations... It will be years before people actually realise the depth of this man's raw talent...
tomas haake is the best drummer of all time but few of them know about him his simply born as a drummer and after him is george kollias
why is this guy after lars ulrich? metallica are great but when it comes to talent meshuggah rape
The most innovative drummer of them all - and his technique is unparalleled!

he isn't the best but his work with rainbow was great
Never misses a beat both live and at the recording studio. Fast, hard, and unforgiving.
Just the fact that he can do double base, fast drum rolls, and always has a natural rhythm set up in every System of a Down song puts him at #1 in my book. Listen to Soil. That's him at his best.
That man made me wanna play drums!
Sublime is awesome. I would put bud in the top 10 if it were up to me. He is awesome he made me want to play
Thanks Dub and Had A that inspired me to take up the drums.
His high hat progression and use of the bass drum convinced me to buy a drum set and jam along to Sublime's tunes.
Can't deny it, the man is an underrated genius.
Listen to Barracuda and you will agree.
Mike is as good or better than any one on this list.
