Greatest Drummers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 14

261 Bob Bryar Bob Bryar

Most underrated drummer of all time in my opinion

262 Tico Torres

Even Gene Krupa rated Buddy as the greatest and that says it all. Not only was he fast, he also had a delicacy and variety of touch that placed him on a higher plane than both contemporary and younger drummers. Added to this he had a dry sense of humour which often came through during his playing. See him on the Muppet Show on YouTube.

Simply. Number 1. Greatest Drummer from the greatest ever band. No Band has ever performed live as well as Jovi. No band ever will do. Quite simply music perfection.

This is the only solid rock band that has made it this far without falling into the Hollywood lifestyle. Great music, Great concerts! Definitely the best drummer of all time!

No one plays the drums like tico

263 Meg White Meg White Megan Martha "Meg" White is an American drummer known for her work with Jack White in the Detroit rock duo The White Stripes.

If there's such a thing as the feminine Dave Grohl, Meg White is it

She's the best female drummer ever.

She is half of the white stripes, that should at least get her into the top 5! - TheOnlyFish

She is worse than lars ulrich - emilk

Hottest drummer ever! Rob bourden should be in first place you inspired me to play the drum's I'm 14 years old and I've been playing since 2002!

Best drummer ever! He plays in my favourite band, and he's the best drummer I know! He should be at first place! VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE GO SOLDIERS!

Alright I gotta admit leaving Meteora and MTM aside he didn't actually did any awesome drumming till The Hunting Party. That album shows his flair, fast yet smooth transitions. A Line in the Sand and other songs are pretty good example. His Given Up solo should also not be forgotten. He may not deserve to be in the Top 5 but he clearly is a Top 10 material now!

The best drummer ever please listen final masquerade

what makes a drummer the best? it is not only their technical performance, but also charisma and feeling. yukkie has all that

Yukihiro is simply amazing! Despite his skinny appearance, his tempo, beats and speed are unbelievable! He'll always be the best for me

266 Dominic Howard Dominic Howard Dominic James Howard is an English musician, best known as the drummer, percussionist and co-producer for the alternative rock band Muse. He also contributes to the synthesized and electronic-based elements found in their music.

He is amazing drummer can play a lot of drum. He can play a lot of song that was so hard to play it. He can play fast as he can. He also can play very long time without exhausted and looking tired when play at the concert. He is the best player drum I had saw at the wembley stadium before.

Dom Howard, in my opinion, is one of the best drummers EVER! He should be in the top ten.
All of the members of Muse should at least be in the top ten of all their "fields". So, Matt should be in the top ten guitarists, Chris the top ten bassists and Dom in the top ten drummers. Because, in my opinion, they are ALL amazing. X

Knights of cydonia. Resistance. Dom howard is the best. We love you dom! Keep up the good work

66?!? Have you guys even heard New Born or Assassin's drums?

267 Craig MacIntyre

Craig can really get the blood to going! Love to watch him play. Drummers fascinate me. I can multi-task online but drumming takes something else my brain just can't compute. Thanks Craig for giving out tips to those that occasionally sit in a song! - anetnut

This guy rocks!

Craig you deserve recognition for all the wonderful work you do. - Jerusha

Famous does equal the best.

Craig is a fantastic drummer and fun to watch. Drummers have always fascinated me. Talk about multi-tasking... Amazing! Before joining Josh Groban's band, Craig performed with Jackopierce, Toni Lynn Washington, Jess Klein, Johnny A, and the Swinging Steaks, among others. Thanks for sharing your drumkit with you know who Craig. - anetnut

268 Shannon Leto Shannon Leto Shannon Leto is an American musician and songwriter best known as the drummer of rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars.

When Shannon drums, my heartbeat literally changes into what he's playing. When he starts playing you can tell it's so full of passion and energy. Wait. Scratch that. He does not PLAY the drums, he lets his passion take over and it basically becomes his life. He's seriously been doing this all of his life and he'll never stop. If you ever listen and watch him drum, you'll understand. It's basically heaven.

I love his sounds *_*. He's the best drummer on the world and he is just Shanimal! My favourite drummer is Shanimal *_*

I can say anything, but it's better if you listen the This Is War. It'll tell you everything

Very talented and original! Love HIM!

270 Eric Singer Eric Singer Eric Singer is an American hard rock and heavy metal drummer, best known as a member of Kiss, portraying The Catman originally played by Peter Criss.

What an earth he is doing over here? He is number one in my opinion. Rock the Nation DVD is great, because he is in the drums.

Not the best ever but he is amazing and reaally creative! Definitely deserves a much higher rank than this one... Just listen to Kiss - God Gave Rock N' Roll To You II

273 Mikkey Dee Mikkey Dee

Mikkey is insane! Rocked with Motorhead, Helloween, King Diamond and Dokken, thats a pretty impressive list. Listen to Hell Was Made In Heaven and tell me he doesn't belong in the top 10 -

Mikkey is the beast with motorhead. Like lemmy sad. "the best drummer he had ever played with"

274 Randy Castillo
275 Rikki Rockett

His name fits as he can pound the skins for Poison to a tee

276 Darren Cesca
277 Lech

This guy's blast beats are so fast that sometimes you have to wonder if it's a drum machine put on 500 bpm. He manages to keep a perfect beat and play the fastest solid double bass I've ever heard. Some people can't even keep up with him with a triple bass. I don't see how this guy isn't number 1.
