241 Karen Carpenter Karen Carpenter Karen Anne Carpenter was an American singer and drummer. She and her brother, Richard Carpenter, formed the 1970s duo Carpenters.

Karen Carpenter not only was a wonderful vocalist, she had mad drumming skills.

Not only was she an amazing vocalist but she had amazing drumming skills.

Although she was a fantastic singer she still was an awesome drummer!

242 Tim Austin

Tim Austim was the heart and soul of The Wreckin Crew in the early 80's. He Kept a strong funky beat for The Wreckin Crew For Eight Years. He Now holds a tight beat for the legendary Buddy Guy.

243 Richard Christy

Not even in the top 20?

244 Matthew Helders
245 Tomoya Kanki

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.

246 Jay Weinberg Jay Weinberg Jay Weinberg is an American drummer and the son of drummer Max Weinberg. He has played with the punk band the Reveling and toured in 2009 as a drummer with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, substituting for his father.

He is in slipknot

247 Brain Downey

In my opinion the greatest drummer of them all with the greatest rock band of them all thin lizzy

248 Barry Frosty Smith

When he played with Lee Michaels he was doing things with the drums that still to this day has not been surpassed for the time. Many have emulated him and many have learned from him even if they didn't know of him through others that did.

One of the most respected artists in the industry, the one that other drummers will go to see if he's in their area. He's played on over 60 albums.

249 Brandon Sallers
250 Daniel Erlandsson

Eaniel's drumming is sublime and the drums which bring the guitars back in after the breakdown in Nemesis is the best 10 seconds of music ever.

251 Brian Chippendale

face melting awesomeness. check out the power of salad and milkshakes and tell me im wrong.


252 Christian Grahn

This guy is the best Drummer Ever. AwesomE! - mmtennis07

253 Zoltan Csorsz

Just see the "Meet The Flower King" DVD concert and vote It's an Hungarian prodigy

254 Ginger Fish
255 Erik Sandin

Come on, he is so good. NOFX's songs are often very fast and Sandin plays drum fast as hell and I saw them live and he was really precise. If you listen to everything in moderation, I am going to hell for this one,... you will understand what I'm talking about - pageg

better drummer with Chris Tsagakis ( rx bandits ) he is a pure clock and in a NOFX shows (i've seen them 2 times), the most precise drummer I've seen ever.

I hope I can see one day Chris Tsagakis live.

Come on, how? Smelly is amazing, and he puts in so much effort into his incredible beats, and he plays fast as I have never seen before. 301 is bullcrap. It's disrespect. This guy is possibly NOFX's heart.

He rules. Come on, 225? He should definitely be in the top 10. Listen to the speed he pulls off in decom-posuer or that kickass breakdown in the decline, and you will think the same.

256 Barry Kerch

His drum playing is onw of the best I have ever heard next to Jen Ledger he is the best right now period of the best drummers I've heard (you think iam dumb) he at least in top 20

257 Spencer Smith

I agree I'm at 159 and outraged he wasn't higher even though as of April 2nd he left panic!. cries

258 Danny Seraphine

There's absolutely no reason that Danny Seraphine is buried under all this metal garbage. As the drummer in Chicago, he was, in my opinion, unsurpassed in his time or since.

Great at jazz and rock drumming as well.
