The Contenders: Page 12

221 Byron McMackin

dude this guy is sweet
and fast he and mike portnoy are the best.

222 Matt Nicholls

As great as some of the drummers up there!

Quick as hell!

Don't know if this is Matthew from Bring Me The Horizon, but gosh he is just great. Saw bmth live once so far and Matthew has blown me away with his drumming. He is literally 1 of many awesome drummers.

223 Ryan Seaman

One of the best and most inspirational Drummers of he has such a wide range of style can play anything and Everything :) NOT RECOGNIZED enough for what he is capable of.

Dave mcClain's not even in the top 100!? That is complete BS! He is one of the best drummers alive and this is just another case of him being way underrated. Listen to imperium, Locust, Asthetics of Hate, Halo... I could go on forever! Please people, get some brains. He is better than the majority of people in the top 10. Just because you're in a famous band doesn't classify you as being one the best drummers. It's the quality, not popularity.

He's one of the best drummers alive, just listen to some Songs of him (like Imperium) and you will see what I mean

If you have ever seen machine head live, you know why he should be in the top 10

His performance at Knebworth during Halo was awesome.

My favorite drummer of all time, so good!

226 Matt Sorum

HE PLAYS LIKE A MACHINE! Yes, Steven Adler is better, but he plays better than a lot of these drummers! He is my favorite solo drummer.

227 Boris Williams
228 Choi Siwon Choi Siwon

Alright, some would say he is in a Kpop band and doesn't count as a rock drummer, but he's amazing.

229 Bev Bevan

Bev being the progressive rock artist that he is absolutely shone with Electric Light Orchestra. Their live concerts were not to be missed. If you never got to see their shows, get their DVD Out Of The Blue. Lt's to die for.

Influenced Sean Page to play drums. Overdub master!

230 Arejay Hale

Halestorm's drummer. He is amazing, I saw them live, and he would throw the sticks in the air, kick a symbol and catch the sticks no problem! Listen to the Halestorm songs:
Love Bites (Won a 2012 Grammy Award)
I Miss the Misery (Was in a Bud Light commercial)
Freak Like Me (Hit number one on two US charts)
I Get Off

Really good live drummer, entertaining drum solo

How is Rocky Gray Ahead of Arejay Hale?

231 Rob Hirst

Brilliant drummer, watch the video for Power And The Passion and you'll see why

Should be in the top 20. Pete Townsend rated him 2nd after Keith Moon.

Underrated should be a lot higher

Rated highly amongst drummers

This is the cutest and talented and amazing and greatest drummer at all... I love the way you enjoying the beat of the music, Tomo-chan.

233 Larry Mullen Jr.

He is the drummer of u2 so vote him to move him to number 1 godammit

234 Roy Mayorga

listen to him, when he was in Soulfly! especially in "Umambarauma". absolutely great

235 Dave Raun
236 Jordan Burns

For those of you who have never heard Strung Out, I strongly encourage you to hear 1 of their 13 records from start to finish. Then truthfully you will see why Jordan Burns is the epitome of progressive metal punk rock. Honestly he should at least be in the top 20. See for yourself.

How is this guy 124th on the list? Way better than most of the top ten (Toby Keith, Neil Peart, and The Rev excluded)

237 Adrian Young

Its not fair, how someone talented like him is that low rated.
He really deserves like Top 5!

absolutely under valued, tight-precise rhythm. in the top 15!

238 Jordan Rat Beard Hastings
239 Jim Gordon Jim Gordon

Great solid drummer, should be higher up. Played with some awesome people and bands.

240 Pat Torpey

He's one of the best rock/glam drummer of his era. he supposed to be the #2 because he plays jazz and slow rock

Yoda: "top ten he is! "
