Jimmy "the Rev" Sullivan!

The Rev!

The Rev!

I have seen a post that had him number 2 under Travis Barker? I have listened to drummers for over 40 years and have heard most of them including "The Great Gene Krupa", The God Father of Modern Drummers.

My mother who was a drummer, and Idolized Gene Krupa, could not believe how good the "The Rev" played. I can say, I have listen to most of the drummers on the list. I was watching a documentary on "The Who", and was just focusing in on how Keith was drumming with no High hat and watching how he was playing the double bass and using his cymbals.

The Rev, by far in my opinion, has taken drumming to another level. I understand some of the other drummers on this list, but this young man should be recognized for his contributions.

RPI: Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan.
