Off topic, but how the fuck is "Every Everything" one of Grant Hart's highlights?

Bill Berry above Larry?????..............umh, dont think so! And Charlie Watts at 4??????????? he is the most basic drummer ever! Would agree wi the No1 choice. Cant pass comment much on the others as I dont know their work

Nor the great work of Charlie Watts, apparently. He's an amazing drummer.

Am reserviing my right to disagree with you on Charlie Watts Canadiens. Am not saying he is a BAD drummer...............just not the 4th best rock drummer. Larry is superior and that has nothing to do with being Biased.

Larry does not deserve a spot on a list of this type at all.

That said, this particular example of a list is downright appalling. Now, I'm not a particularly big Rush fan (I can't name a single album where I don't skip songs), but by absolutely any measure, I do not know how on earth you could possibly rate Larry ahead of Neil Peart. Come on, he's NEIL FUCKING PEART.

My friend always gave props to Larry as a drummer because as with most U2 tracks you can dance.

As much as I care what some self-important dumb-ass at Stylus Magazine thinks I do have one question:

No Phil Collins?

Really?

I am by no means a fan of most of his work but not even number 50?

the man is a human metronome, thoroughly deserves his spot

Larry in there AT ALL is asurprise, esp looking at the list behind him ?

Billy Cobham ?? Bill Bruford ??? NEIL PEART ????!!!??? Larry's fine fo rU2, but shouldn't be on th esame list as those guys, let alone ahead of him.

Let's not even mention those left off.......

OK, the absence of Stephen Perkins on this list makes this the absolute worst list in history.

And no Phil Selway? isgusted:

At least Lars Ulrich wasn't on it. That makes me slightly happier.

What a thoroughly depressing list. Mind you, it is Stylus. I wouldn't have expected any more of them. The only good thing about that entire page is the YouTube link they provided.

He'd easily get #1 on the 50 Greatest Garbage Can Drummers list.

I've no idea. But holy shit, I almost turned my lungs inside out when he looked into the camera and said "this is rock and roll". Also, "one two tree, one two tree".

Christ, just his solo at the end sounds better than some of the drummers on Stylus' list.
