Best Rock Drummers
The Contenders: Page 24
I wish that people wouldn't factor in history when voting or submitting favorites. The best means the best. Past and present. If somebody sets a record and the record is broken, the current record holder gets the title. Sure, Neil was absolutely incredible in the 70s and 80s. As was Bonham, and weckl, and Buddy rich before them. It's all about breaking barriers. Clearly no research was done, otherwise this absolute master, Matt Garstka, would be in the top 5. I doubt even polyrythm titans like Portnoy could hold a torch to matt. Every facet of drumming technique and skill has been mounted and mastered by Matt Garstka. The Albert Einstein of drumming if you will. Please folks, do some research. It's a wonder all three Matt's don't hold top 10 spots: greiner, happen, and garstka. If you don't care to learn whose setting the bar, then drums is not the instrument for you to take up. Never stop learning.
Matt is only 441 spots far from his earned position. Matt is easily right now one of the 10 best drummers of the world. Amazing creativity, accuracy, versatility...Please give AAL a listen and focus on Matt Garstka. He blew my mind and I've been a drummer for a long time.
The drummer of Animals as Leaders. I can't believe my ears when I hear him play. He has the most outstanding accuracy and style I've ever heard. Give him a listen.

Great at jazz and rock drumming as well.
Ambidextrous thrash and speed metal drummer (Annihilator, Primal Fear, Duskmachine). He's very fast and technical.The King of fills. One of my favorite drummers he needs more attention because he's really great.
Annihilator - Ultra Motion Primal Fear - Riding The Eagle. - Metal_Treasure
He's a sick drummer for sure (technical death metal). - Metal_Treasure
According to Rob Halford, Bobby Jarzombek is the best metal drummer he knows.
Bobby worked for Halford solo, Riot, Demons & Wizards, Sebastian Bach, and several more. - Metal_Treasure
Drummer for Edguy, Avantasia. He plays as if he wants to destroy the drum kit and he plays with pleasure. - Metal_Treasure
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.
Hands down the fastest stick beating, can smashing drummer!
