Greatest Drummers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Herman Rarebell

He deserves to be the real heartbeat for The Scorpions, bar none

A great drummer and songwriter.

182 Sam Samus Paulicelli

Most skilled drummer ever to grace music.

183 Kashikura Takashi

Kashikura Takashi of toe is definitely more versed in the ways of percussion than anyone in this list. For the best example of his perception of rhythm, listen to C from their album "the book about my idle plot on a vague anxiety. " I've never heard anyone with such great ambidexterity of all their limbs. His style is different, but he still mops the floor with most of the people on this list.

I lost my words to describe how incrdible he is. Seen him live once with Toe in Indonesia. Mesmerized by his amazing drumming skill, quite exxpressive and soulful, tight fill-in but with smooth breakdown and moves. He's alien! Animal. The best gentleman drummer ever. I love him.

184 Glen Power

I guess the rob bourdon and glen are same in drumming...
Glen is cute enough also...

185 Charlie Adams

Seen in concert twice. I've seen Rush twice. I've seen Van Halen once. Metallic once. Slayer once. Smashing pumpkins twice. All are some serious contenders for being top ten drummers. But to be honest with myself, yes, yanni has the most talented drummer. Take a listen to at least ten dynamic yanni songs and you'll agree most likely. And his solos are just perfect!

If you've ever seen/heard Charlie Adams, you would definitely understand why he's THE BEST! There's NOTHING he cannot play! I agree that with Yanni ( some like & some don't), the music being so diversified, that it takes a special person to be able to perform. All of Yanni's band members have superior musical talent!

Yanni's drummer is certainly amoung the best! Just watch some of his solos on YouTube. Yanni's many different styles of music requires a special technique of drumming with a very diverse beat and speed. Charlie nails it perfectly!

186 Dave Abbruzzese

Truly electrified Pearl Jam's concerts and brought an energy not heard of in the studio versions

187 Larry Darrell

This guy with two first names was the force beat behind all the great music made by Rick James and the Stone City Band. A Drummer King

188 Jon Hiseman

Technically brilliant musically magnificent absolutely awesome

189 Omar Hakim V 1 Comment
190 Mel Gaynor
191 Gilvanni Hildago

This guy is absolutely amazing. His combinations in music boggles the mind at times. - AKPickin

192 Alphonse Mouzon

I saw Mouzon with Larry Coryell and the 11th House. His powerful drumming reminded me a lot of Cobham's. I think with jazz drummers you get much more complex and technical drumming than in rock and I find it so much more interesting and cool. I've seen a lot of the top drummers on this list including Bonham and Keith Moon but I would put Mouzon ahead of them.

193 Brad Wilk Brad Wilk

The bridge section in Killing in the Name of is one my favorite drum parts ever. I also really liked his Audioslave parts. This guy is just awesome.

Really underrated. He can really groove!

194 Shuji Suematsu
195 Shiva Mani

He is best in India and he is one of fast drummer with more instruments

196 Shannon Larkin

Are you taking the piss of me, Shannon Larkin #231? His playing is great, and when he unleashes his full energy, Joy of playing, potential, and unique style... it's unreal. I bet the half of the voters here didn't even hear Shannon playing what he is capable of and at his best. Definitely deserves to be way higher.AT #231? Shows why 99,99 % of voters here are dissing the list, LoL...But Seriously, His playing is great, as said unreal and Wicked... Definitely deserves to be way higher.

197 Ray Luzier
198 Bun E. Carlos

It's a shame he's not higher on the list. One of the best, most underrated drummers in rock and roll, who was asked to play on John Lennon's last album. That my friends should tell you something right there.

Bun E. Is very underrated and a big reason why Cheap Trick was one of the best American bands of all time.

Gimme Bun E. over Neil Peart ANY day of the week!

Cheap Trick wouldn't be Cheap Trick without Bun E.He may not look much in apperence but he makes up for with his skills

199 Scott Columbus
200 Jerry Mercer

Should be on this list
