495 Meg White Meg White Megan Martha "Meg" White is an American drummer known for her work with Jack White in the Detroit rock duo The White Stripes.

461st! Okay, this is probably where she should be...

She really could bring it. Badass.

Nobody plays like meg.

It's true that he is not the best drummer ever but she should be on the top ten

496 Jack White Jack White
497 Eddie Van Halen Eddie Van Halen Edward Lodewijk "Eddie" Van Halen is a Dutch-American musician, songwriter and producer. He is best known as the lead guitarist, occasional keyboardist and co-founder of the hard rock band Van Halen.

There's a song Van Halen did called "Crossing Over. " It was a B-side of a single in the US, and a bonus track in Japan. On it, he sings and plays ALL the instruments on one channel (can't remember if it's the left or right), and the rest of the band does their thing on the other channel. So, if you pan your speakers to the correct side, you can hear him playing.

Eddie Van Halen plays guitar and piano. Albeit, it's a little known fact that the piano is a percussion instrument, not a string instrument (I play piano) it doesn't make Edward a drummer. It's his brother Alex that is the drummer in the family.

498 Shinya

This guy is phenomenal and versatile drummer who makes whole use of his massive drumset. Just check out Dir en grey's song 'VINUSHKA' and you'll know.

Shinya is by far the best drummer in the world. His idol used to be or still is Yoshiki, but it's obvious that Shinya has surpassed even Yoshiki's level of skill. Just seeing Shinya drum, one can immediately tell that he is gifted beyond his years. And just look at how huge & expansive his drum set is! Shinya knows how to use all his equipment to its fullest capacity. ^_^ Shinya is God.

Yeah shinya is very cool and awesome. I am Mongolian. We love you shinya! Gambette!

Shinya is not on the top of this list where he belongs just because the most of the voters simply never heard him drumming! What he does is not just drumming, it is real art beyond any ratings.

500 Lee Kerslake

Has to be one of the best Rock drummers of all time He would stay on stage 20 minutes doing solo's leaving audiences in awe of what he can do with a set of drums, even as a guitarist, He amazed me at what he could do with them.

Lee Kerslake has to be one of the all time greatest. Heavy hitting, musical...shoot he did "CRAZY TRAIN' for Ozzie. The whole group is one of the tightest like Santana a tight group even better live. They've been playing for almost 50 years even through the ups and downs. They are a band's band. Ask Rush, Kiss anyone in the business.
You have to listen to his works to really appreciate what he can do. He should rank a lot higher but as they didn't get as much fame in the states as abroad. Still a huge loyal fan base.
