Greatest Drummers of All TimeAKPickin
The Contenders: Page 11
I think this guy can compete with anybody, he created his own style.
Should be in the top ten. Probably played on most of the songs you attribute to other drummers.
Yay, Topper Headon, heartbeat for The Clash! He was just right drummer for the said Clash; no other would do, in my view
So underrated, should be a lot higher
Why is he so low? - Gruunge
An awesome drummer! He gives Alice In Chains' songs a great pulse.
Actually can't believe he's at 302. HE went to Berklee School of Music and Boston and won many awards for musicianship.V 3 Comments
Just YouTube about him
Dennis attached the drums like few could and still keep a steady beat.
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.
I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that Jim Gordon should easily be in the top 10 best drummers of all time, taking all aspects of drumming into consideration. I would group him with Ringo, Levon, Bonzo and Keith, as the masters of groove, feel and musically creative drumming... Just think of Layla, Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot, Rikki Don't Lose That Number by Steely Dan, and Carly Simon's Your So Vain, just to name a few. He was one of the main contributors of rock and pop music of the late '60's and '70's music that defined an era when music was great! This man was a genius, and it is a shame that our industry has lost him to mental illness forever. He should be honored with his rightful place amongst the top drummers of all time.
He is a mastermind and that it's unjust he fell victim to his unexpected fate. He did so well for Derek & The Dominos
Certainly one of the best. He played on so many great albums.
This guy is very awesome one. His doing can beat my ears and my heart feel the dumb
Shadow falls - even if you don't care for that type of music - He can crank it up, check out you tube
