10 Best Rock Drummers of All Time
by Alex H.
Keith Moon, 1973
The Bands in Parenthesis are the bands I think they did best in.
10.) Ringo Starr (The Beatles)
9.) Dave Grohl (Nirvana)
8.) Tre Cool (Green Day)
7.) Carmine Appice (Rod Stewart)
6.) Bill Bruford (Yes)
5.) Neil Peart (Rush)
4.) Zak Starkey (Oasis)
3.) Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)
2.) John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
1.) Keith Moon (The Who)
I picked Keith Moon as my number one because, without him, there would no John Bonham. Without him there would be no destruction in Music.
He evolutionized drumming. Neil Peart was heavily influenced by Keith Moon. The meaning of good drumming died with him, with not even a handful of exeptions.
