Don't Count The Finns Out

by Jyri Mikkola
(Vantaa, Finland)

Sami Kuoppamäki

Sami Kuoppamäki

This ranking seems to be only of the best drummers of the Anglo-Saxon world... But there´s definately life outside of that too.

I warmly recommend for everybody to check from the net these 2 Finns: Sami Kuoppamäki/Kingston Wall and Kai Hahto/Wintersun. Both of these top of world-class drummers can play virtually anything, and do it so that it sounds good.

Definitely in my top ten, together with Clive Bunker, Lee Kerslake, John Bonham, Stuart Copeland, Keith Moon, Nicko McBrain, Bill Ward and Clive Burr.

Could as well be the next 10 guys who are equally good and interesting... like Barriemore Barlow/JT, Ian Paice, Michael Shrieve, Graham Lear/Santana, the guy from Tool, Janne Heikkonen/Lapko, Mitch Mitchell, Ginger Baker, The Rev, Ian Clarke/Uriah Heep

Or the next...
