Greatest Drummers of All TimeAKPickin

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
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
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
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
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
The idea that he could keep up with the intellectual energy is amazing. The fact that he put a beat, rhythm and tempo to it is profound. Check him out on any of the classic quartet's pieces. - AKPickinV 1 Comment
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
Allen White is by far the best drummer ever.
The drummer from Oasis. He is one of the best!V 1 Comment
When Vanilla Fudge hit the scene there was no American drummer who could drive an audience to a frenzy like he does in "You keep me hanging on". Probably not rated higher because good as they were, Vanilla Fudge was known more as a copy band.
Are you kidding john Bonham received some pointers from this guy!
Yay, Carmine Appice! From Vanilla Fudge to Blue murder, Appice rocks!
Sick Sad Little World, all I gotta say.
101? Are you kidding! Who came up with this list Ringo Starr? Tommy goes all the way back to Black Oak Arkansaw! He is a master of the double bass, along with spinning his sticks, when Tommy Lee was in Diapers! He should be in the top 10!
Pat Travers, Ozzy Osborne this guy can destroy a set of drums
Move him up! He's a hell of a drummer!
He is in one of the BEST bands ever, and I feel like he is underrated because he's supposedly not as hot as Brendon Urie or Ryan Ross. That's not cool because when it comes to the music, the band would be nothing without him. What is a song without the beat of the drums? Their first album"A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" would be nothing without the drums. Spencer Smith deserves more recognition than he gets, and I'm going to let him have it.
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
What, Eric Carr is one of the greatest drummers I have ever seen. Saw him live in 84, and have also seen Neil Peart live too, and I gotta tell ya, Eric Carr impressed me much more. Neil Peart is just boring quite frankly, he uses all this equipment to make a range of different sound sure, but nothing beats Eric Carr's heavy rock n roll drumming. Simple but powerful. R.I.P my friend
How Can the fox is not in the list. He is one of the best drummer in the world. RIP... Eric Carr!
Eric is my all times favorite drummer and I think KISS would have been a lot better with him at the drumset today.R.I.P. eric Carr, The Fox of the drums!V 1 Comment
He is So cool he has such a unique drumming style
Kai from the Gazette is the best drummer I've ever seen! just check him out.
