Just listen to the album "The Sound Of Perseverance"... songs like "Scavenger of human Sorrow" "Bite The Pain"...R.I. P Chuck...
How is Richard Christy #144 he is a drum god. Listen to the sound of perseverance by the originators of death metal death. Or any song by charred walls of the damned (a very underrated band) ghost town and manifestations are both amazing songs with christys freakish drumming leadin the way. He diserves to be in the top 5 at least behind only maybe kieth moon, Mitch Mitchell, and cozy Powell these at the kings of the drumset
Not a legend yet, People are yet to discover him and witness his talent. But this guy is far superior than anybody on this list when it comes to skills
One of the best! Has played with many great musicians.
Highly underrated! A great sessions drummer, has played in the band Big Country for years. Also has played with Pete Townsend, Roger Daltry, the Cult.

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.
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 playV1 Comment
Just listen to now you've got something to die for or ruin. His drumming is fast yet unique. Probably one of the best metal bands out there right now. Won best metal drummer. I don't know why he is this low?
How? How? 59?!?! He is undoubtedly the best... Nobody can question his sheer brilliance. How many other drummers in his genre actually play without triggers? He is the reason I started playing the drums.
Number 90, seriously? Chris is hands down the best drummer ever. Just listen to the final 20 seconds of Straight for the Sun. He should defiantly be in the top 10.
Listen to Black Label and then vote for him. You will want to after that song - heavymetalrocker777V4 Comments
Love his cymbal legato and brush work.V1 Comment
Mike is as good or better than any one on this list.
Listen to Barracuda and you will agree.
He puts all of his soul and energy into his drumming and really has a passion for what he does.
Josh is an energetic drummer and has a fervent passion for drumming
Just watch some videos, it will be worth it
He should be the firstV5 Comments
Tetsu Kikuchi is one of the best (If not the best) drummers out there. I hope everyone votes for him. D'erlanger is one of the best bands, his fills and rhythm are just incredible. Long life to Tetsu Kikuchi! The best drummer of the world!
One of the best and fastest rock drummers in Japan from the band D'ERLANGER. He was the drummer of SAVER TIGER and ZI:KILL. He and CIPHER created CRAZE after D'ERLANGER disbanded and in 2007 his main band reunited again. - ronluna
Nah, even that adler was to drug to play on the use your illusions albums. adler wrote the drum "licks to you could be mine". I do agree that sorum is underrated espically have someone lame lick aaron spears and travis baker on the list
most underrated drummer. should be way ahead of steven adler. - DylanBr00ks
This guy is an absolute beast real shame he is not on top. Listen to This House is a Circus or Pretty Visitors and tell me he doesn't deserve to be sitting in the top 10. When I wrote this comment his name was not even on the list.
Listen to Brianstorm by Arctic Monkeys and your mind will be blown, the drums in it are incredible
Beastly drummer. Listen to brianstorm and tell me he shouldn't be number 1
The View from the Afternoon? This guy is amazing and should be way further up the list!V3 Comments
