just listen at "good times bad times".
enough said ;)
Seriously! I would understand the almighty Bonzo (who is most certainly the best) being #7 behind Neil Peart (the only actual good drummer up ahead), Keith Moon, Carl Palmer, Ginger Baker, Bill Bruford, & Buddy Rich, but LARS ULRICH & that overrated joey guy from that overrated band that all these hipster teenagers who call themselves metalheads (I personally dislike metal) seem to adore, & what's with all these Japanese guys that nobody's ever heard of winning polls? I just died a little inside when I saw this.
I just love the fact that he played with four drum sticks. When you watch him play, you can see the sweat coming off of his body; drumming was a complete workout for him.
He is the best drummer of all time. Peart is better than him in some ways, but no other drummer can beat him in any single aspect... Even if you compare him to Neil Peart, he definitely plays harder than him, and he seems to be doing a million things at once: and his drum solos are complete in themselves, unlike any other drummer's... This is in fact the first list I've seen where this drummer of the biggest band of the 70s is ranked below #2
I haven't heard of many of these greatest Drummers of all time! John Henry Bonham at #7 was this poll taken at a primary school drumming is about swing feel groove not how fast you can play Bonzo passed away at the age of 32 younger than most of the people on this sorry list but he still did 10 times more than these people will ever dream of doing 3 words ACHILLES LAST STAND
John Bonham was without the greatest drummer. He was hugely influential and a tremendously powerful drummer. Bonham made a huge contribution to the unique sound of Led Zeppelin. He possessed a huge talent, small wonder he frequently performed solo's on numerous Led Zep tracks, most notably, his awesome solo on, 'Whole Lotta Love. ' He has influenced a plethora of top class drummers, which speaks volumes.
John Bonham needs to be number one! He influenced rock drumming and even inspired Neil Peart to pick up the stick! He had explosive energy and drumming power at concerts and made the bass drum to incredibly quick with only one pedal! His unbelievable beats, fills and solos combined create the greatest drummer ever!
There's nothing anyone past present or future, did, done, or gonna do on the drum's that this guy couldn't have done or even beat. Timing flowed from this guy like it unravels from order to chaos yet still stayed in time, I don't know how, He was obviously a God, Too create such time signatures.
If you think otherwise, all you need to put this guy at at #3 or above (Peart and Rich could be above or below him) is watch his 1970 live performance of Moby Dick. Just go watch that and compare it to the greatest performances by the others on this list, then go ahead and form your opinions.
BONHAM #1, Moby Dick was amazing. Zeppelin wouldn't have been with another drummer. Too good to even be the 2nd all time. Bonham is clearly the best and unfortunately these people didn't get the memo, all other lists on the internet even have him at 1...
Truest drummer for the music. Best soul expressed in musical content of variation in musical sound being of latin origin or middle eastern. Fantastic feel whether dark sounds or very up lifting. He's not just a drummer, but a men with vision R>I>P>
Without a doubt, Bonzo deserves to hold the top spot. He was the total package that any self-respecting drummer should aspire to be like. Those that disagree really need to go listen to 'Moby Dick' from "The Song Remains The Same"
John Bonham at #7? This list just lost ALL credibility. Bonzo remains the greatest rock drummer that ever lived... Go check every major drumming publication in the world... As well as virtually every fan poll of the last 40 years.
Bonzo is the best endurance drummer of all time! the man was like thunder and lighting when he played, he even played non stop in concerts, and they last 2 hours, including a 20 minute drum solo!
What a shame that most of the voters never heard a real drummer. Bonzo is the best. Period. I doubt that this poll is representative at all, but after all it's a matter of personal taste, too.
This guy does 20 minute drum solos while the rest of the band go have a beer out the back. no doubt he is the best
John Bonham is an EPIC drummer. Just go to Youtube and watch his live perfomance of "Moby Dick". He plays during more than 10 minutes with an outstanding energy.
Wait, wait Bonham at 5? He is the best drummer ever! No one has that good of a sense of rhythm that Bonzo had. Plus who on earth is Shannon Leto? Peart is good but not better than Bonham!
This drummer was probably the best rock drummer of all time if not the best in any genre. Just listen to a live version of Moby Dick and be blown away by his drum solo.
John bonham the best and the greatest drummer I'm never seen because he have a great skill than the other drummer. He is the greatest one in his own style.
watch moby dick dude, and you will realize who is the best drummer in the world! the greatest drummer of all time...
John, at five. Under two names I've never even heard of, and a metal drummer who is good, but isn't nearly as good as the number four drummer of all time.
Who are the others in this list? Barring a few, I've never heard of them! It is clear to see that Bonham should be number one; the man was a drumming god.
Listen to Misty Mountain Hop. Then you listen to Kashmir. Then you know you why he is the best drummer of all time.
The drummer of the best band of all times... His death was the cause of the separation of Led zeppelin... No one was able to replace it...
