Best Rock Drummers

The Contenders: Page 14

261 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.

262 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

263 Longineu Parsons III

This is the former drummer for Yellowcard. This guy is an absolute beast in the studio, and live. His timing is impeccable and his technical skill could crush so many of the other drummers on this list. He can play everything from ballads to the fastest punk you've ever heard, all with unique style and fills.

At least a top 5 drummer, for one of the greatest bands ever.

264 Spencer Smith

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

Best Drum player in the history.

270 Bill Eyden
271 Derek Bloom
272 Liberty Devitto

One of the greatest drummers I've ever seen live

273 Chuck Biscuits

chuck is by far the best drummer of all time, style wise and sound wise, look up "bodies" by danzig on you tube and watch how he drums, then listen to losers club by D. O. A. and picture him drumming.

274 Ron Welty

Def. tied with Eddie VH for the best ever

Brilliant drummer. I have seen him with Kiss and Alice Cooper.

275 Jim Keltner
276 Chad Wackerman

excellent jazz fusion drummer who is a touring and studio legend. played with innovative greats such as frank zappa, and allan holdsworth. - wildaminal

277 Josh Eppard

has no one seen the dvd on the making of the first part of good apollo? that man was pounding away at his drums for so long and so hard that he actually developed his hand muscles even further than before. not to mention the fact that next to neil pert, john dolmayan, joey jordison, and gustav schafer, his drumset is also a barricade. I honestly don't understand why he wasn't on this list. (if I happened to just miss his name, someone please tell me. my glasses are starting to fail me :p) - ronijohnson

When josh left coheed & cambria, no one could fill his shoes and play like he did. Now he's back and coheed sounds better then ever. Maybe cause he was playing straight rock for 2 years, or playing all his own beats on his solo hiphop record: Weerd Science "sick kids". Sickest drummer ever, fastest single peddle

Definitely belongs in top 10, wether baricaded or 4 pc kit, he's amazing, not just rock but any genre, he finds the groove in all and has the fastest single foot around, he's the talent in coheed and back to fill his own shoes, bigger and even better then before

278 Nathan Followill

I love this man! Not only a great drummer but an awesome singer! His backing vocals are perfect!

Effortlessly cool and my ears only hear the drums & bass on KOL tracks

His drumming style and volume along with his vocals takes KOL to another level of greatness
