BEST DRUMMER EVER?
Derrick Plourde - An Unknown But Very Skilled Individual
Derrick Plourde was in bands such as Lagwagon, The Mad Caddies and the Ataris. He sadly committed suicide in 2005, but left behind a trail of tasty beats, a very fast paced totally full style of drumming.
Many punk fans will know tracks such as Mr coffee and bee goggles - to write a drum beat such as these takes true imagination. Seriously if you like drummers who play quickly listen to these tracks.
Another Drummer who has to fill his shoes when leaving Lagwagon was Dave Raun - he too plays very quickly and precisely and has had to adapt to Derrick's crazy style of drumming in order to be able to play these tracks with the bands. He also drums for Me first and the Gimme Gimmes, although this does not always broadcast his talent.

Mr Coffee CD version Derrick.
Mr Coffee live Dave.
Two unbelievable men.
Other views on the top 100 were that is was good to see Josh Freese in there, however Joey Jordison!!!??? Where was he? I don't like metal much but he is truly amazing.
I think Ringo Starr was okay but technically i don't see him as a top 100 drummer, the band didn't need a top 100 drummer in my opinion.
