Are you taking the piss of me, Shannon Larkin #231? His playing is great, and when he unleashes his full energy, Joy of playing, potential, and unique style... it's unreal. I bet the half of the voters here didn't even hear Shannon playing what he is capable of and at his best. Definitely deserves to be way higher.AT #231? Shows why 99,99 % of voters here are dissing the list, LoL...But Seriously, His playing is great, as said unreal and Wicked... Definitely deserves to be way higher.
Perhaps one of the most under rated and unkowns of great drumming.

Although he doesn't chop like a metal drummer, he is the best drummer I've heard.
Sonny played with EWF and is as accomplished as any of the drummers on this list. You should watch a few of his performances.. He has won a grammy to boot... Come on...
This is not a popularity contest.. For example, Phil Collins was in one of the great bands, but I would not rate him one of the great drummers... Please!
How can he not be on this list? He is the talented drummer of Breaking Benjamin. And so humble as well! He believes that anyone can play the drums
