I agree with a lot of posts that disagree with the rating of drummers based on the size of their kit (Peart), or how they fitted into the rhythm section of their band. Drummers are not just about keeping the rhythm...that's the job of the bassist.
I have looked at the list of 'great' drummers on this blog and there many missing that should be recognized. I aint gonna name them all and my opinion is not based on solo's etc. BUT, the fact that Travis Barker is not on the members list is lunacy. (Side note from the TotalDrumsets.com team: Travis Barker is actually on the list at 87, you must have missed it).
I am from Birmingham, England ... the home of Rock music, so for me to nominate an American as greatest Rock drummer ever is bloody hard. BUT, Travis Barker is the best ever. Mooney would have loved him and Cosy and Bonzo would agree. These are old friends and sadly missed.
Don't just vote on show and what you think should be. Vote with your heart...after all that's what drumming is about...feel and heart.
