Best Drummers Ever?
by Dave Broun
(Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.)
How could anyone truly rate the best drummers ever, each and every one of us rock fans has a different favorite judged with differing criteria.
I must confess I feel that some of the greatest drummers of the modern era have been left off this list but as I have already pointed out the method of compiling the list will always mean someones favorite is not included.
My top 10 would be as follows:
10. Bill Bruford - Yes
9. Steve Prestwich - Cold Chisel
8. Ian Paice - Deep Purple
7. Roger Taylor - Queen
6. Brian Downey - Thin Lizzy
5. Phil Collins - Genesis, Phil Collins band
4. Nigel Olson - Elton John band
3. Bill Gibson - Huey Lewis & The News
2. Tommy Aldridge - Whitesnake
1. Tico Torres - Bon Jovi ( Awesome !!)
