Who are your 5 favourite drummers?

I don't pretend to be a drummer myself, but here are my Top 5....

1. Neil Peart, Rush

2. Jon Bonham, Zeppelin

3. Keith Moon, the Who

4. Lars Ulrich, Metallica

5. Larry Mullen, U2


Even if you are a Rush hater, this guy is mesmorisng to listen to. Larry may not be the greatest technical drummer, but for someone with no musical background, he sure sounds good to me (he's certainly the coolest-looking of the bunch).

Neil is the most talented drummer ever. He plays like that, and writes most of the lyrics for Rush.

This puts him above every other drummer.

i second your list (although i'm not a rush fan he is a good drummer, like you said) i've gotta add jon farriss of inxs. he has inspired me to try to scrape my pennies together and get a drum kit one of these days. also, roger taylor (of duran duran, that is) is an underrated drummer.

1. Peart. He's an animal, even in his 50's.

2. Bonham

3. Moon

4. Phil Collins (Back in the day, he could play. Rhyme!)

5. Stewart Copeland

I agree with all mentioned.

I'll also add Topper Headon (pre-junkie days that is).

(Come on, you can't help but air-drum to Tommy Gun or Safe European Home)

Gotta give a little recognition to Carter Beauford of DMB. He's an animal.

And as much as I hate to admit it, Travis Barker from blink-182 is a monster on the kit.

Peart is great, definetly in my top 5. I got Bonham as #1, most incredible drummer i've ever heard.

LMJ is the man but I dont got him on my list
