Greatest Drummers of All TimeAKPickin
The Contenders: Page 6
A fun and easy drummer to listen to. This guy will eternally overlooked because he's only associated with a couple of albums... But what a couple of albums they are; Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman.
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.V 1 Comment
Just the fact that he can do double base, fast drum rolls, and always has a natural rhythm set up in every System of a Down song puts him at #1 in my book. Listen to Soil. That's him at his best.
The fact that he is currently at #97 while Tre Cool at #37 is just sad. Such complex drumming shouldn't be ignored. Most of these people voting are really just voting for their favorite bands instead of focusing on the drummer. Bull!
Never misses a beat both live and at the recording studio. Fast, hard, and unforgiving.
He has his own way to play... And he is one of the bests! It's not his position!V 1 Comment
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"
Herb considers both Peart & Bonham as his main influences. one can clearly hears that. Bonham should be number one; Peart number two & Alexander number three.
the only bassist alive that can keep up with les claypool's inhuman bass playing
This guy is way too far down this list.
He puts all of his soul and energy into his drumming and really has a passion for what he does.
Josh is an energetic drummer and has a fervent passion for drumming
Just watch some videos, it will be worth it
WHAT? You're trying to tell me Josh is 132!? Whoever made this list is BLIND! Who else can support half a famous band without anyone thinking they needed more?
Have you seen how fast his hands move in some songs? He should at least be in the top 30! Josh is so insperational, Because of him I want to learn how to play the drums!
Unique sound and creativity, absolutely recognizable!
Black Veil Brides! CC is a amazing drummer, his solos are cool. He's very talented! BVB!
He is absolutely legendary. The reason he is not in a good position of this list is because he is not in a band but his drum solos are incredible. He is my inspiration as a drummer.V 1 Comment
How is scott not at least in the top 50? Seriously?
If you haven't heard Will play, you NEED to! He's a drummer that will turn your head because you'll want to see, not just hear how great he is! Glad to see him in Rival City band!
Will is a Beast And has been in and a part of some great bands/music.V 4 Comments
One of the best! Has played with many great musicians.
Highly underrated! A great sessions drummer, has played in the band Big Country for years. Also has played with Pete Townsend, Roger Daltry, the Cult.
