Best Rock Drummers

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Clem Burke

He's cool! He got the drums under his control, but treats them not like slaves, but like a beautiful punk lady. In my mind he's simply the best drummer the world has ever seen.

Thank you Mr. Burke for so many magic musical moments!

The greatest 3 minutes drum kit ever, Blondie's Dreaming.. Debbie Harry vocals combined with Clem's madman 3 minutes rant is pure legendary. I totally challenge anyone to top his performance.

I just can't see how Clem is so far down on the list but am happy to see that at least he is recognized for the amazing drummer that he is!

Amazing...only problem is he knows it!

142 Tim Alexander

wow this guy should have been so much higher. listen to "defy the laws of tradition" and "john the fisherman" and you will know what I am talking about.

Alexander's favorite drummers are Bonham & Peart. He's a perfect mix between the two. He's number 3 in my book.

Sure he isn't the #1 drummer, but listen to songs like "Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers" and "DMV," and you'll hear how amazing he is. Plus, he does crazy fast bass drum beats while his other foot is still on the hi hat pedal.

143 Steve Gadd

"Just because I can, doesn't mean I will and just because I won't, doesn't mean I can't"

Just look up some of his drum solos, or try to get your head around some of his licks! He is absolutely amazing! His technique is better than every other drummer out there and certainly better than Dave Grohl... Wow you can play some loud single strokes on a snare drum lets give you number 6 on this list. Gadd is an absolute legend and has played with the best of the best. Just a shame not many people know him

How is he not on this list! He is amazing should be in the top 10. - Rubes114

How is he 144? He should be at least in the top ten. It is impossible for Steve to be this low!

I can't Believe I had to add this guy on this list. He plays the MOST wide variety of genres and plays it better than most guys who speciailise in one place. -10 faith in Drumming Humanity

144 Alan Reni Wren

Alan wren was one of the best drummers of his generation a key example of this was his ability to create such a wide range with a limited 3 piece kit if people had more of a chance to see his awesome ability he would surly be much further up this list

He is one of the most important drummers in existence! He's insanely talented and just an all around amazing drummer. He has a 3 piece kit and he still sounds better and has a greater range then half of the drummers on the list.

He keeps the beat steady but as you listen to it closer, there is some amazing fill work going on. Wish he would return somewhere for us to enjoy.

The best by far... Underrated

145 Kenny Aronoff

When John fogerty states that Kenny is THE best rock and roll drummer in the world, that's good enough for me

Aronoff should be in the top 20 of all time. If you are a drummer you would agree.

Kenny is rock solid, John Fogerty would have nothing else

The long list of artists who have use Kenny's talents in the studio says it all. He's my favorite because he's all about slammin' that solid groove & not showing off.

146 Will Hunt

Will Hunt is the perfect balance between having a lot of energy and passion when he plays, and also not completely drowning out the rest of the band. This is a quality often underrated in good drummers.

Tommy Lee thought Will was good enough to take his place as drummer for the last leg of a Motley Crue tour he had to miss. He is currently in Evenessence where he continues to KICK ASS!

147 Marco Minneman

He should be in the top ten at least with his unique style and incredible ability to play all types of styles, from jazz to technical death metal.

He is better than mike mangini. So. Of course. He is the best drummer.

Just listen to the aristocrats.

148 Harry Judd

The batterist of Mcfly, the best, the most amazing drummer I ever seen, he puts all his energy in the drums, and he does very good.

149 Mick Tucker (Sweet)

Should be higher up on this list. In my opinion only second to the great john bonham.

The man with the golden arm: the best drum-solo ever

150 Daniel Platzman

Amazing if you have ever seen Imagine Dragons live you will understand his talent

He is the drummer for imagine dragons... Great work

151 Jon Hiseman

Really surprised to see Hiseman right down here at 178. Perhaps he's never been in the public eye enough to have the hight profile he'd need to get right up the rankings. Just listen to him with Colosseum playing Lost Angeles in the live recording (live at the Fillmore I think it was).

152 Pete Sandoval
153 Mike Terrana

The best in my book

154 Scott Rockenfield

Very underrated drummer, not top 10 but certainly much higher than this rating

Saw him live when Tate was at his peak too. Brilliant drummer

155 Levon Helm Levon Helm Mark Lavon "Levon" Helm was an American rock 'n' roller, Americana musician, and actor who achieved fame as the drummer and regular lead vocalist for The Band.
156 Mike Fuentes

Mike Fuentes is the drummer for Post Hardcore band Pierce the Veil his older brother Vic is the lead singer.

Mike also raps and is my moms favourite member I think? I also just have to say that it's nice to know that Valentino Arteaga is above Mike.

157 Mattew Nicholls
158 Martin Chambers

Woah. How isn't he on the top 5. He is one of the beat drummers of all time. Watch vh1 decades of rock performance. He is the best drummer of all time with the pretenders and can put on a real good show.

I have seen hundreds of shows and Martin Chambers was by far the best performance I had seen for drummers.

159 Dean Butterworth

I accidentally clicked on him. I do not consider him to be in the top million drummers of all time.

Good charlottes current drummer and they are the best band ever!

Drummer of good charlotte is absolutly amazing he is so hot.

160 Rocky Gray

Very underrated drummer. Listen to Evanescence's first two albums, brilliant

This list is stupid, Rocky Gray is definitely in top 10, he is amazingly talented.

He's a professional drummer. Maybe underrated, sure. But top ten? Stop it.

He's good, but how is he ahead of Karen Carpenter?
