Greatest Drummers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 11

201 Joe Rickard


202 Jerry Mercer

Should be on this list

203 Alvaro Lopez

I think this guy can compete with anybody, he created his own style.

204 Buddy Miles V 2 Comments
205 Scott Rockenfield
206 Pete de Freitas
207 Hal Blaine

Should be in the top ten. Probably played on most of the songs you attribute to other drummers.

208 Earl Palmer
209 Topper Headon

Yay, Topper Headon, heartbeat for The Clash! He was just right drummer for the said Clash; no other would do, in my view

210 Benny Greb V 4 Comments
211 Dale Crover

So underrated, should be a lot higher

Why is he so low? - Gruunge

212 Sean Kinney

An awesome drummer! He gives Alice In Chains' songs a great pulse.

213 Daniel Platzman

Actually can't believe he's at 302. HE went to Berklee School of Music and Boston and won many awards for musicianship.

214 Anandan Sivamani

Just YouTube about him

215 Earl Young

Drummer for the trammps disco inferno and the drummer behind all of that great music from Philadelphia international the sound of Philadelphia gamble and huff productions

THE best

216 Mickey Hart

Mickey should in the top ten. This guy invented instruments, won awards for new beats, and plays a style that cannot be replicated. He has left his mark on percussion, and is far from done.

Where does this Drummer fit in the list?

217 Bernard Purdie V 1 Comment
218 Dennis Wilson

Dennis attached the drums like few could and still keep a steady beat.

219 Arejay Hale

See him playing live! - BetsyIsARockFan

He is getting better and better, his onstage energy is awesome.
He is much better than many here on this list.
