Top 10 Best Singing Drummers
Roger Taylor, the amazing drummer of the awesome band Queen. A great drummer, singer, and good songwriter. He has such a nice voice range and apparently a 4 octave one. Definitely somewhat underrated especially for his voice. I also love the songs he wrote, and I'm In Love With My Car has to be one of my favorites. Dunno why but it just makes me laugh and it's actually a nice song
One of the best singing drummers. Lead Vocals on Queen songs: I'm in love with my car, Tenement Funster, Modern times rock and roll, The loser in the end, Fight from the inside, Fun it ( Sharing vocals with Freddie Mercury) More of that Jazz, Rock it (Prime Jive)
Not sure, but somewhere I read he has four octaves vocal range. Freddie Mercury has also got 4 octaves. So, they both have similar range (close). He is definitely one of the greatest singing drummers.
Roger is a fabulous drummer and I ADORE him for writing the fantastic Radio Ga Ga but his voice is too high and scratchy for me. I prefer Brian May's voice but the absolute BEST is Freddie's voice.
I've always liked old Phil. Boy can that man drum! And he's a Londoner and that's always a bonus!
As much as I adore Roger Taylor, Phil Collins has a much better voice.
The best... Now I mean the best singing drummer of all time!
The man had a huge solo career as a singer.
I was around 10 when I started listening to Avenged Sevenfold. At first, I see M. Shadows and Gates and the rest you know. But then, there he was, The Rev. He stuck out, both physically and vocally tall.. What I mean is, yes he was quite tall, but his vocal range. Seriously, have you heard A Little Piece Of Heaven? He also just doesn't sound like any other vocalist, ever. He has his own sound, and he owns it.
Rev should be number one, his drumming, his singing, his talent and his creativeness always was, is and most probably always will be unmatched! I miss you Jimmy.
Watch him live. He's precise while he's singing. All drumming does to his singing voice is lose a bit of the distortion. Does it just like the record. He wasn't just a performer, but an amazing writer. Some of Avenged's best songs are written by Jimmy.
ZThe Rev is the greatest vocal/Drummer I've had the pleasure of seeing. Look up some of his live stuff the unique voice he had he could do low devilish growls to high wine glass breaking yow'l, top drummer vocalist in my opinion.
The man is a legend in the world of drumming. All of me and my buddies listened to this mans drumming style when we were growing up and he has been the biggest inspiration to me in my drumming career.
Micky is a widely talented drummer with an amazing vocal range his voice defines the word pop rock, and The Monkees had a unique sound because of his drumming.
Micky was an amazingly talented drummer with an almost equally talented voice and not many people could drum and sing at the same time with keeping the beat on the drums as Micky could no one can even come close to competing with him!
She is blessed with many talents! Who learns to play drums in four years and gets to play for one of the world's hottest touring bands? Check her out in her debut concert tour, 'Comatose Comes Alive' at just 18 years old!
Jen Ledger has a voice that's possibly even better than her brilliant drumming. Listen to her huge contributions on Skillet's 2013 album Rise: it's pretty much Jen's album.
Jen ledger is by far the best drummer/singer. She's only in her early twenties besides the point. She has true talent and she shows it every time she sits down at that drum set
She IS the best current singing drummer, since none of the others in the top 10 seems to be active, like she is for the Christian band Skillet, where she both drums and sings! :-)
There is no singing drummer that is even close to Henley, also easily one of the greatest, and most poetic songwriters of any music genre...a true genius. Glen Frey said it best when he said "Don Henley can sing the phone book"
Are you kidding one of the best lead singer, let alone being a drummer.
Awesome voice and still as strong as ever, amazing!
Best voice of any drummer!
Peter Criss is an amazing Drummer and singer, deserves more recognition for his talents
Dave Grohl. Nirvana, Queen Of The Stone Age, and lastly...The Foo Fighters, which kinda doesn't count. Point is, multiple bands with success, his voice...Put it together and you'll see why he is one of the best.
Mickey Dolenz and Peter Criss ahead of Levon Helm, wow! Anybody ahead of Levon Helm wow!
How the hell would he not be in the top ten?!
Levon Helm hands down is the best!
One of the best singing drummers out there, but he's surprisingly underrated
Great drummer, never mind female drummer, but with the most beautiful singing voice of all time. Lovely lady too. I met her one day and she was kind, funny and beautiful all in one.
Karen Carpenter should be number 1. Listen to her original open drum beats while she sings. It's her voice and the simple drumming that made the Carpenters great.
She was not a rocker, but her singing voice was one of the greatest of all time, not just among drummers.
This really should not be a contest, nobody else is close.
He made a solo album which was actually pretty good! Good singer, unbelievable drummer!
Eric not only could play drums and sing, but he could write songs, play bass, guitar, and piano as well.
Guys, one of the best singing drummers in the alternative and metalcore scene, everyone else on here are gods compared to Aaron but his singing in songs from Underoath with songs like "The Impact of Reason", "Writing on the Walls" and "You're Ever So Inviting." Or in The Almost with "Stop It! ", "Say This Sooner" and "Southern Weather". You gotta give him a chance and vote him up to the top 15 at least!
Amazing songwriter also
What an amazing voice.
She's a great drummer.
