Greatest Drummers of All TimeAKPickin
The Contenders: Page 7
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.
Not a legend yet, People are yet to discover him and witness his talent. But this guy is far superior than anybody on this list when it comes to skills
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.
He is so underrated, he would be my 3rd favourite drummer after Dave Grohl and Roger Taylor!
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
He should be in the top 10. the pumpkins are my favorite bands if the listen to gish and all of mellon collie and infinite sadness or Siamese dreams. Oceania was a descent album it was still missing something... then you would all understand why he should be in the top 10
Had to throw him up on the list. Any Smashing Pumpkins fans out there? I'm not a huge fan by any means, but always thought this guy made the band. Next time you listen to the Pumpkins, pay attention to the drums and you will bump this guy. - Kidkoffee
Yeah pumpkins! After jimmy cleaned himself up, he only got better, becoming the amazing drummer he is today.
Just listen to the Smashing pumpkins. He speaks for himself.V 2 Comments
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
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
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
