If anything, he's the opposite of influential. He looks so creepy and plays so repetitively that he makes you want to avoid the drums. - RalphSaad
Just saw Carl Palmer last night in Atlanta with Asia anniversary tour. He needs to be much higher on this list, definitely within the top 7. If all the lists have Neil Peart as Number 1 then Carl needs to be very close I said within the top 5 at least. He is a complete machine on the drums!

Yeah? Check the basic dude doing "say the word love" when the rest of the were in diapers. They just never showed ringo and when they get to a few parts he goes crazy like moon but didn't repeat it. He I'd on the cymbal what moon did on the floor Tom but in this 1964 song, Ringo does a fill, just like moon and I'm sure had there been an Abby road 2 (no let it be was recorded first- kills me how. Many don't know that. Ringo influenced many. Do a YouTube search ringo underrated? Song say the word love and that was a decade before all the singers that couldn't play anything, swung the mic around. Zep, who, Beatles wrote stones firstv2 records. Beatles let it be stones let it bleed. Sgt pepper. Stones have something identical. The Beatles changed not only music but politic, the world, governments. Anyone else do that? Paul
Makes about $24, 000 for a 3 minute trip to the toilet.
RIngo is the father of modern rock drummer and, in one way or another, has influenced every rock drummer since the early 60's. Should be at the top of this list.
Why is Ringo below anybody else? Dave Grohl once said that he is one of his inspirations in playing the drums! What a joke!
Nothing special - he is known just because he was a drummer of a popular band. Same for Dave Grohl. - Metal_TreasureV1 Comment
His drum style was the epitome of punk rock and it became legendary.
Longest serving drummer for The Ramones at 15 years. Also a living legend.
The only Ramones drummer to be the sole composer and writer of Ramones songs.
While he was kind of a cocky jerk, he still was an incredible drummer. And anyway, this is about INFLUENCE, not how good the person is. Seriously, without Buddy Rich, Bonzo, Neil Pearl, and Keith Moon would have been COMPLETELY different players.
So fast and also creative and he plays for slipknot
I'm usually playing this guy's songs...
This drummer I would recognize from the very fast hit...V1 Comment
This one is most dominant in his band...
