Top Ten Most Overrated Rock Drummers


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sib Hashian (Boston)
42 Roger Meddows - Taylor (Queen)

The only reason why guys like Rog, Bonzo, and Peart are on this list is because meth head heavy metal dopes are mad that their favorite bands drummer is not on the top 10 list.

Rrrroger Taylor! Anyone dissing him knows not what they speak of. One of the great drummers who played on some of the most complex progressive rock music of the 70's and he could sing his ass off too.

Bo roger not overrated

One of the worst drummers ever. His tendency to accent and open hih-hat on 3rd is simply annoying. Half of his beats is simply kick on the 1st and snare on the 3rd - that's no drumming. His sense of tempo was also nothing compared to the one of Freddie Mercury, so instead of leading the group rythmically he followed the others. Many Queen songs are unlistenable simply because the drum beat is so stupid that it offense your intelligence and taste.

43 Buddy Rich Buddy Rich

Buddy Rich is the greatest jazz drummer ever

As a drummer, it's insulting to hear so many people call this guy the "greatest drummer of all time". It's like people calling Slash the "greatest guitarist of all time". There are metal bands with kids not even in there twenties yet that smoke this dude. I wonder if we will ever live in a world where mediocrity isn't worshipped.

That's like calling ZZ Top overrated. Buddy was a drummer ahead of his time. Kid might "smoke" him now, but back then no one, not even Gene Krupa, could do what he did. He has amazing balance and doesn't even move his torso when he slams the drums. And to mention, he never had practiced when he was young. - naFrovivuS

Rock or jazz? - zxm

44 Tico Torres (Jon Bovi)

He is the worst drummer ever! He is bull, a metronome makes a better job than him

The band's name is Bon Jovi, not Jon Bovi

Worst drummer ever? You must have never seen Lars play.

Isn't it Toco Tirres of Jon Bovi?

45 Mark Zonder

The work Mark Zonder did with Fates Warning tops anybody you can name. He is a badass drummer who puts all others to shame.

46 David Silveria (Korn)

David actually is a pretty good drummer. He is also a very weird drummer. He is very creative with his beats and fills (some of the weirdest ones I've heard) and they definitely fit with Korn's music. (Listen to "Lies" and "Freak On A Leash".) Honestly I feel like every famous drummer in the world is on this list lol
