Love his cymbal legato and brush work.V 1 Comment
Just listen to now you've got something to die for or ruin. His drumming is fast yet unique. Probably one of the best metal bands out there right now. Won best metal drummer. I don't know why he is this low?
How? How? 59?!?! He is undoubtedly the best... Nobody can question his sheer brilliance. How many other drummers in his genre actually play without triggers? He is the reason I started playing the drums.
Number 90, seriously? Chris is hands down the best drummer ever. Just listen to the final 20 seconds of Straight for the Sun. He should defiantly be in the top 10.
Listen to descending. Chris is so underratedV 6 Comments
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
Thanks Dub and Had A that inspired me to take up the drums.
His high hat progression and use of the bass drum convinced me to buy a drum set and jam along to Sublime's tunes.
Can't deny it, the man is an underrated genius.
Sublime is awesome. I would put bud in the top 10 if it were up to me. He is awesome he made me want to playV 1 Comment
Mike is as good or better than any one on this list.
Listen to Barracuda and you will agree.
Tetsu Kikuchi is one of the best (If not the best) drummers out there. I hope everyone votes for him. D'erlanger is one of the best bands, his fills and rhythm are just incredible. Long life to Tetsu Kikuchi! The best drummer of the world!
One of the best and fastest rock drummers in Japan from the band D'ERLANGER. He was the drummer of SAVER TIGER and ZI:KILL. He and CIPHER created CRAZE after D'ERLANGER disbanded and in 2007 his main band reunited again. - ronluna
This guy is an absolute beast real shame he is not on top. Listen to This House is a Circus or Pretty Visitors and tell me he doesn't deserve to be sitting in the top 10. When I wrote this comment his name was not even on the list.
Listen to Brianstorm by Arctic Monkeys and your mind will be blown, the drums in it are incredible
Beastly drummer. Listen to brianstorm and tell me he shouldn't be number 1
The View from the Afternoon? This guy is amazing and should be way further up the list!V 3 Comments
Nah, even that adler was to drug to play on the use your illusions albums. adler wrote the drum "licks to you could be mine". I do agree that sorum is underrated espically have someone lame lick aaron spears and travis baker on the list
most underrated drummer. should be way ahead of steven adler. - DylanBr00ks
Responsible for a totally new style of drumming. - AKPickin
Watch Soul Sacrifice and marvel at how this kid could do what he did. Could it be that he was a great drummer?
Watch Santana at Woodstock. You cannot take your eyes off of Mike Shrieve.
Shrieve was only 17 when playing at WoodstockV 2 Comments
I can't believe nobody commented anything about him before! He is definitely unbelievable and must be the first, better than anyone above...
Not the best, but damned near close...V 1 Comment
Fastest double bass listen to fallen world, the game, and reasons to live, just any song from DragonForce and you will see,(or hear) how fast his double bass is listen to them play live for the songs I said earlier then you'll know then all vote for him not only double bass but everything he plays
Best Double and Alternate Bass ever created... just astonishing
Fastest double bass drummer in the world no arguing with that
His drumming is INSANE - wrestsV 2 Comments
Hello people, this man was maybe the greatest jazz drummer of all time, Buddy Rich was a banging hack compared to this man. If Buddy Rich is number 4, then then Max is number 3.V 1 Comment
GRAND FUNK RAILROAD JUST SEARCH YOU TUBE FOR INSIDE LOOKING OUT JUST LISTEN TO THE WHOLE SONG MAYBE THE GREATEST LIVE ROCK PERFORMANCE EVER, PERIOD. 1969, JUST 3 GUYS, NO TRICKS, JUST LIVE, RAW, POWERFUL. IT DONT GET MUCH BETTER THEN THIS
Just saw Don play with Bob Seger in Pittsburgh. At 63, he is a better drummer now than he was 40 years ago. No frills, just straight ahead, power drumming, without the theatrics of being part of the "New" GFR.
American Band is the holy grail of rock tunes... and Brewer is right there as the locomotive... Super solid, always driving the band... He is one of rock's greatest drummers...
Plays one of the top 5 drum solos of all time. He should be in the top 10 easily not only for his stick skills but vocal ability also.V 1 Comment
