    Default Best drummer. Metal, rock, whatevs.

    These guys put forward the proposition that it might be TOOL's Danny Carey.



    SR and I were talking about Portnoy from Dream Theater earlier today. I have a buddy that thinks Portnoy and Peart are the tatas.

    Fug them. Carey isn't even top 10.
    Portnoy and Peart are quite groovy- but not the top. I've seen been lucky enough to see Neil Peart, Bill Bruford, Stewart Copeland, Phil Collins, Roger Taylor. Never got to see Moon, Ginger or Bonham.
    I would love to check out Gavin Harrison if he rolls into my neck o' the woods.

    As a complete package - greatest rock drummer eve' ....drum role please...Keith Moon.

    There are some songs where I've thought "those drums/beats sound cool" while listening to them, but I've never really decided which drummer is the best.

    It's Ringo Starr, right?

    Did you ever read this New Yorker piece about Moon? A good read.

    I did initially think about derailing this thread and making it about Prince, but decided against it. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Thats tough because different styles call for different drummers. I'd almost say a session drummer like Steve Gadd should be near the top as they have to adapt to several styles of music. I don't know a TON of drummers but my top are (in no particular order):

    John Bonham
    Neil Peart
    Jimmy Chamberlain
    Al Jackson Jr (worked with Otis Redding and Eric Clapton)
    Dave Grohl

    There are probably tons of drummers I am not even aware of that should make that list! Gonna dig around some drum heavy tracks I like and see who was behind the beat.

    To be the greatest rock drummer, not only do you need to be great, but you'd have to live like a rock drummer. It's my only knock on Neil Peart.
    Bonham and Moon had vodka for breakfast with a couple of hookers and a pet cheetah- that's rock.
    Peart had granola at his mom's house - and not that there's anything wrong with that. He could be the greatest classical, orchestral, jazz drummer.
    There's no rocknroll in granola.
