Greatest drummers in Rock

Posted on: July 9, 2008 11:30 am
 
A friend of mine once told me that a band is only as good as its drummer. I dont know if this is true, but I tend to notice a drummers skill before anything else when I listen to music. Being a Rush geek, I set the bar pretty high. These are my favorite drummers:

Neil Peart

John Bonaham

Keith Moon

Alex Van Halen

Dave Lombardo-Slayer

Nicko McBrain-Iron Maiden

Charlie Benante-Anthrax

Chris Adler-Lamb Of God

Igor Calvera-Sepultura

Dave Grohl

This is'nt a poll, just a place to post opinions. Cheers!

Well all the drummers that you have listed that I know are excellent. Not being a metal fan hopefully excuses me not knowing the rest you list. I will say this though any list of great rock drummers that does not include Ginger Baker is incomplete.

Great blog Piranha!  I believe your friend is right.  Our band doesnt have a drummer and we are horrible right now! lol

Anyways, you listed some good drummers!  I would have to add Bill Bruford and Alan White to the mix.  Both of them (but especially Bruford) helped make Yes' sound unique....

A "Greatest Drummers" vote off would be VERY interesting...
