I will do the heavy lifting for you. Here it is:
25. Alex Van Halen
24. Tommy Lee
23. Phil Collins
22. Camine Appice
21 Janet Weiss (never heard of her)
20. Chad Smith
19. Roger Taylor
18. Tommy Aldridge
17. Jeff Porcaro (Toto)
16. Danny Carey (Tool)
15. Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa)
14. Maureen Tucker (Velvet Underground)
13. Max Weinberg
12. Mike Portnoy
11. Dave Grohl
10. Ringo Starr (Along with the 2 chics, shouldn't even be on the list)
09. Ian Paice
08. Mitch Mitchell
07. Stew Copeland
06. Keith Moon
05. Bill Bruford
04. Charlie Watts
03. Ginger Baker
02. Neal Peart
There is so much wrong with this list.
Your thoughts? Pretty screwed up list right?
Neil Peart has got to be #1
You could go to a top 250 list and I wouldn't include Charlie Watts. As Neil (not Neal) once said,"I could play until I'm 100, but I couldn't play Neil Peart. I could play Charlie Watts."
Just seeing if you were paying attention.
I agree, shit I think someone asked Lennon or one of those others a question about Ringo being a good drummer and they said "he isn't even the best drummer in the Beatles. Like I said, it's a jacked up list.
Ringo is a very good drummer but no way to 25. Bonham, Keith Moon, Ginger Baker all deserve to be on the list. It's all just somebody's opinion though. Technically the best 25 drummers in the world are probably all jazz drummers who most of us have never heard of.
I'll eliminate Ginger Baker entirely just for being a world class deuch lord. Asshole has never given a stand up shout out to quality drummers, but has all the time in the world to talk about what he hates. He's like rex on steroids
Yep, and if they are like their fans, they all have inferiority complexes. You'll never find a jazz fan who will give Neil Peart his due.
Not by any stretch
