Toured the world with (in their heyday) Peter Frampton, The Eagles, Joe Walsh, Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young... You talk about your rock star life...

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

283 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.

284 Zoltan Csorsz

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

285 Corky Laing

Any list like this is purely subjective but for pure snack-you-in-the-face rock and roll Corky is hard to beat.

286 Brian Blinky Davison

RIP Father of all progressive rock drummers he gave a dynamic approach to rock when he joined the keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson in The Nice in 1967.

287 Robb Reiner Robb Reiner

Normally I would vote for Paul rudd since ac/DC is my fab band but this guy is amazing at drumming lok up white rhino on YouTube the drum solo is epic - Wasdxd

288 Ginger Fish
289 Yuya

Yuuya, from SID, he's very good, he has highly technique for all variety drums

290 Shuji

He can plays with fantastic skills and very fast!

291 Jimmy DeGrasso
292 Paul Ferguson

At least 3 of the drummers in the top ten of this list would cite Paul as their major influence - highly underated and for no other reason than the fact that Killing Joke were the band that the press (still) love to hate - this man went where 99 of the drummers in this list would not dare to go. When others were punk, he was disco, when others were disco, he was tribal and when others were tribal, he was polished and precise - we are not worthy. - unspeakable

293 Jim Keltner
294 Fergal Lawler

My favorite drummer of all time, so good!

295 Jun Ji
296 Jimmy Lin

How can Jimmy Lin not be the best drummer ever? Just listen to the jazz fusions he has played and you will know what I mean. - The most complex and technically skilled drummer ever! - MikePortnoy

297 Shou
298 B.J. Wilson

sigh... just looked through this lame list again and noticed he wasn't on it. another drummer that it should be criminal not to include on such a list, he was the prototype for john bonham, and although I'm not the biggest procol harum fan, this guy was INCREDIBLE. watch any videos of him on youtube and you will understand this guys indescribable style. bombastic, tasteful, and severely underrated, wilson will most likely be forgotten in the annals of time, as this list shows, which is just tragic. - wildaminal

He is one of the top drummers of all time. His unique style was unequaled. Listen to his work on Procol Harum's album 'Broken Barricades'. Amazing!

Listen to his drumming on, for example, Grand Hotel, and then vote.

Top, top drummer, if Jimmy Page wanted him in Led Zep he must have been tasty, one of the top 10 drummers of all time, hugely underrated by Joe public but not by his peers.
