101 Tim Herb Alexander

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.

102 John Dolmayan John Dolmayan John Dolmayan is a Lebanese-born Armenian–American songwriter and drummer. He is best known as the drummer of System of a Down.

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.

The fact that ringo star who suitded the beatles but lacked talent is 7 and this god on the drums who is one of the best is at 100 is ridiculous

103 Josh Dun Josh Dun Joshua William "Josh" Dun is an American musician. He is currently the drummer for the band Twenty One Pilots.

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

Where to begin?
Way too crazy on the drums, even though the band is supposed to be relaxing and catchy.
Can't sit still, and looks like Lars Ulrich on steroids.
Plays really average point fills that Dave Grohl could do twice as fast.
Overrated by fans just because he's self taught and has anxiety. News flash: Being self taught isn't a rare thing.
He's nowhere close to a great drummer. At least Ringo knows what genre he plays. - naFrovivuS

104 Christian "CC" Coma

Black Veil Brides! CC is a amazing drummer, his solos are cool. He's very talented! BVB!

105 Brann Dailor Brann Dailor Brann Timothy Dailor is an American drummer/singer best known as a member of the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, in which he is the drummer, backing vocalist, lead vocalist and primary lyricist.

Unique sound and creativity, absolutely recognizable!

106 Butch Trucks Butch Trucks Claude Hudson "Butch" Trucks is an American drummer who is one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band. One of Trucks' first bands was local Jacksonville band The Vikings, who made one 7-inch record in 1964.
107 Arin Ilejay
108 Jared Falk

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.

110 Scott Phillips Scott Phillips Thomas Scott "Flip" Phillips is an American musician and songwriter. He is the drummer and co-founder of the bands Creed, Alter Bridge, and Projected.

How is scott not at least in the top 50? Seriously?

111 Richard Christy

Great drummer

Just listen to the album "The Sound Of Perseverance"... songs like "Scavenger of human Sorrow" "Bite The Pain"...R.I. P Chuck...

How is Richard Christy #144 he is a drum god. Listen to the sound of perseverance by the originators of death metal death. Or any song by charred walls of the damned (a very underrated band) ghost town and manifestations are both amazing songs with christys freakish drumming leadin the way. He diserves to be in the top 5 at least behind only maybe kieth moon, Mitch Mitchell, and cozy Powell these at the kings of the drumset

112 Gilang Ramadhan
113 Mark Brzezicki

Some amazing Megadeth solos. Also check out his work with Alice on YouTube.

117 Gusti Hendy
118 Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo
119 Brandon Scott
120 Peter Erskine

One random sample to hear him is on Maynard Ferguson's New Vintage. I never tire of his playing. Should be in top 10- most drummers know that.
