My Best Drummers

John Bonham

John Bonham

This is not that accurate for starters, like why is Dave Grohl in the 90s?? And where is Chad Smith? If you listen to any of their fills it is easy to tell that they both deserve much higher ratings than given.

But my top 10:

1. Bonham. Nuff said.

2. Neil Peart. This guy is a boss with drums and able to use every single one of the drums he has.

3. Keith Moon. No matter how crazy he is, that just makes him that much better. His skills really put the Who on the map and made them an even greater band. Without him they wouldn't have nearly as many good songs.

4. Ginger Baker
5. Bill Bruford
6. Ian Paice
7. Buddy Rich
8. Carl Palmer
9. Stewart Copeland
10. Dave Grohl
