7 Vinnie Colaiuta

Wow, this list is a joke. When you see guys like Joey Jordison in front of Vinnie - you know this list is seriously flawed. For crying out loud, Dave Weckl isn't even on this list. If this list were correct Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd, and Dave Weckl would be top 3 drummers.

8 Joey Jordison Joey Jordison Joey Jordison, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer best known for his work as the former drummer and co-songwriter for the heavy metal band Slipknot as well as guitarist in the Horror-punk band Murderdolls.
