Really underrated pretty good on the double kick really creative he incorporates Brazilian percussion into a lot of stuff

245 Karen Carpenter Karen Carpenter Karen Anne Carpenter was an American singer and drummer. She and her brother, Richard Carpenter, formed the 1970s duo Carpenters.

I had no idea she also drummed, well, I must say that is one talent she had and should get more votes; why she was kicked off her drumkit, that was dirty pool. RIP, Ms. Karen

Amazing performer

255 Art Blakey

Probably the mentor of all great drummers to-day.. Brian Blakey Davison as he would have liked to have been known as.. Instead of Brian "Blinky Davison" of The Nice, refugee, etc. Not on this list.. An artist in the art of rhythm drumming. Art Blakey was his inspiration

Probably the most complete drummer to pick up sticks. Though jazz was his focus, he could play many different genres of music. - AKPickin

84th is ridiculous for Blakey. Top 20 all day and you could easily argue top 10. - Kidkoffee

Blakey's "Niagara Falls" drum roll.

totally amazing if you see 311 eleven live he also will impress you with a inhuman drum solo and he does this unique drum style thing in "applied science"

Chad is the best drummer of all time, yet he never gets any credit. Do yourself a favor and go check out a 311 show and you will be amazed by his drumming.

The fact that travis barker was ranked way ahead of this guy is absolutely insane and ridiculous. Chads the man.

Chad Sexton has reached a Neal Peart type level. His skill level is top notch.

My beloved Yoshiki?... He's the best! No one like him! That way of playing drums doesn't have comparation with anyone in this planet! His passion, his dedication... His madness when he's playing! He puts his soul in each note he plays on drums, and you can feel it! I can't explain it, you have to see it for understand it. He's a devil monster on drums and makes my heart explose! He's not only the best drummer in this planet, it's the best pianist, rocker, and human in this universe! I love him!

One of the best in the world and definitely the best in the top ten. X-Japan rock.

Yoshiki has the feel and the power when he plays yoru music!. He is the best!

He makes me crazy
