Greatest Drummers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 11

201 Jerry Mercer

Should be on this list

202 Alvaro Lopez

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

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

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

207 Earl Palmer
208 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

209 Benny Greb V 4 Comments
210 Dale Crover

So underrated, should be a lot higher

Why is he so low? - Gruunge

211 Sean Kinney

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

212 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.

213 Anandan Sivamani

Just YouTube about him

214 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

215 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?

216 Bernard Purdie V 1 Comment
217 Dennis Wilson

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

218 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.

219 Eric Moore
220 Brandon Saller
