I don't play but have always been fascinated with what I perceive to be a good drummer plying their craft.


This is the same thing but not as raw on the street.

To me, drummers can sound awesome solo, but what counts is can they develop something to fit a song? And the real challenge is can they replicate that every time for that song?

Fail. The standard by which all are measured is Buddy Rich. There are great drummers, unbelievable drummers, and then there's Buddy Rich.

So to be fair for the sake of all the unbelievable drummers we'll go ahead and exclude Buddy Rich from the list.

I will now submit Carter Beauford and Steve Gadd. Those two guys were the top 2 reasons I took a break from drumming after 15 years. It was plainly obvious to me that I could dedicate my life to drumming and still never come close to being as good as either of them on their off days.

but he's in a shitty band!


and contrary to peoples feelings about GodSmack, I think Shannon Larkin is a damn good drummer, I also think Mike Portnoy is a badass.

edit:
and of course we can't forget Vinnie Paul

I am the least musical person you know. Love music but i can't carry a tune in a bucket or play a single insturment. All I know is when that man plays the drums my ears get hard.

As always going with THE man George Kollias. There are not many who could even begin to match him in any drumming category.
Kollias
Intro for his 2nd Instructional DVD
Not only is he an awesome drummer but he is an awesome guy to hang out with. He used to give drum lessons on the road prior to shows and I got to take lessons
from him and hang with him and the band the whole day.

Not sure how you decide "best" but these guys do things with time signatures and syncapation that boggle the mind.

Neil stands out because he was a damn good percussionist in a HUGE band that everybody knows. He was up against a bunch of hack drummers in pretty much every other band on rock radio, and certainly ruled his day. There are plenty of guys that can play to his level and beyond these days....they just don't have the notoriety.

To his credit....he's probably responsible for most of the younger generation picking up the sticks in the first place.
