Most Unique Abilities of Musicians

zxm
All right, I have checked it many times. But I maybe wrong somewhere. Please correct me if I'm somewhere.

Anyway, I've made this list about some musicians who have unique abilities. It's up to you whom do you think is the best. Vote if you like, comment and please add if you have something else in mind.

The Top Ten

1 Mike Mangini - 1203 Single Strokes In One Minute Mike Mangini - 1203 Single Strokes In One Minute Mike Mangini is an American drummer. Since 2010, he has been a member of progressive metal band Dream Theater, following the departure of founding drummer Mike Portnoy.

He's one of my favorite drummers and musicians. Not only for his speed, for everything he does behind the drum kit. He became more popular when joined Dream Theater but he did a great job for Annihilator, too. I also like his personality - very intelligent and well mannered. Just an awesome guy. - Metal_Treasure

Fastest drummer? I don't know if there's another faster drummer than him. But he held the record that I know. - zxm

I'm not sure but I think this list was never on newest list's page. - zxm

Similarly to some posts not being deemed worthy of 'high quality' designation, some lists do not appear on the newest lists page. I'm told it's when they are regarded as having very limited interest, not likely to attract a lot of users/visitors. - Billyv

@Billyv. I asked this question to admin. And they didn't even reply me. - zxm

You don't get to see drummers like him every time. - zxm

Aka The Thunder God. Look at the image and you will understand why.
What he did is heroism. I wanna mention one more thing here - the band encouraged him to continue after the accident and didn't replace him. The band found engineers to design a drum set to their specifications that can assist Allen's drumming. - Metal_Treasure
