My Top 10 Favourite Drummers In The World

by Rodney
(United Kingdom)

Keith Moon

Keith Moon

10. Taylor Hawkins

His style is great, with hard hitting on the snare and a lot of crash. In my opinion he is great, but not perfect like loads of people may think.

9. Shane Wise

This guy is just, in a word, crazy. If you don't know him check him out on YouTube.

8. Zak Starkey

He's in one of my favorite bands ever, so yeah. He's also really good and always seems to find a great beat for all the Oasis songs and takes up Keith Moon's (R.I.P) part really well in The Who.

7. Bill Ward

One of the godfathers of heavy metal. Great style, great beats for great songs from a great band.

6. Phil Collins

A beautiful singer and an expert drummer for Genesis, and a great solo career.

5. Ginger Baker

Just an awesome drummer from one of the greatest rock bands ever.

4. Travis Barker

Okay, I know I'm going to get a lot of criticism about this choice, but remember, this is top ten FAVORITE drummers which are the best in my books, so please don't go calling me an idiot for choosing him.

Anyway, he has my favorite kind of drumming style and is truly my favorite drummer ever, but unfortunately not the best.

3. Ian Paice

From a truly amazing hard rock band that I have and always loved.

2. John Bonham

A legendary drummer. Three word description.

1. Keith Moon

Simply the best drummer ever in the history of Rock music. His death was an extremely unfortunate happening and may his soul rest in peace.

There we have it. Again please don't criticize me too much due to my choices. This is just my opinion.
