Best Progressive Rock DrummersI have the highest respect for Progressive Rock Drummers, as their songs have overly complex rhythms and odd time signatures!
That's why I decided to make a list about those drumming legends!
The Top Ten
Neil Peart is a drumming legend, who has a overly complex sound a insabe drum kit for it!
Overall Peart is definitely one of the all-time most talented drummers ever! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
Mangini was the replacement of Portnoy in Dream Theater and honestly he was good! Not as technical or complex, but still he managed to remain what was awesome about thr drumming in Dream Theater! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
Mastodon has a interesting mix of sounds, which this master drummer manages to pull off! Basically his drumming shows a lot of technic and energy! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
He started with Genesis and then went solo! He had mqny great drumming qualities and overall extinguished Genesis from the rest of the genre! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
The best drummer in the world. Makes every song he plays in so much better.
Really glad to see him on this list. - IronSabbathPriest
Bill Bruford was the drummer in Yes and King Crimson! Overall his drumming on albums, like Close To The Edge was extremly memorable and complex! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
Check out "April Ethereal" (Opeth) - IronSabbathPriest
An incredible drummer who rightly belongs on this list who demonstrated keen precision and creativity while complementing both Keith Emerson and Greg Lake's music. The solo on Karn Evil 9 live version is still one of the best ever...
I can't believe I almost forgot Bozzio! He played with Fran Zappa, but honestly this guys talent is mostly shown in his great solo career!
Also Bozzio has the biggest drum kit I've ever seen! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
The rhythmic heartbeat of Camel!
