Best Drummer of all time.....I would have to say Neil Peart from Rush.

Favourite though is Ian Paice from Deep Purple.

Tough one, but I definately have to go with Bonham. No question about that.

And give Ric allen credit for sticking to it after the accident.

I just seen you post Zed and I agree


well I would have to say Buddy Rich was one of the finest drummers of the world, Rich was playing double Base before rock & Roll. I have been drumming for 32 years and took some things from Rich one of the few drummers I would ever consider better than me. I meet Neil Pearth when Rush was just a bar band, playing on the street in front of a community centre. never been impressed.

Buddy Rich and Animal

if you watch this video closely you will see Rich us his right hand on the base drum this is before double peddles
Buddy Rich and Harry James 1964

Some of the people Buddy played with.

Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Bunny Berigan, Irving Berlin, Benny Carter, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Dorsey Brothers, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra,
Roy Eldridge, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Helen Forrest, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Woody Herman, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Gene Krupa, Billy Kyle, Jimmy McGriff, The Metronome All-Stars, The Original Mambo Kings, Charlie Parker, Art Pepper, Oscar Peterson
Charlie Shavers, Artie Shaw, Bud Powell, Mel Tormé, Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Lester Young, Ray Brown, George Arus, Barney Kessel, Norman Granz, Herb Ellis, Flip Phillips, Bill Reddie, Don Piestrup, Gus Kahn, Oliver Nelson, and Sid Weiss

Travis Barker is very talented. Maybe not appreciated by everyone though...

He used to play for blink until they split, and transplants. The guy even gives free lessons at his house, how nice can you get?!

Yeah, Buddy Rich's drumming is amazing.
A very similar drummer to him though, in talent and style, was Eric Delaney, who also played double bass as far back as the 1950's. His showmanship and drumming style were observed and revered, and eventually copied by a young man in London by the name of Keith Moon, who incidentally has to be the best rock drummer ever. As far as I know, Eric still plays the drums and puts on his own shows in a club caled The Town in Benidorm, Spain. I saw him play there 4 years ago, he was 76 and played with the energy of a 16 year old. It was fantastic to witness.

Max Roach

Full Name Maxwell Lemuel Roach

Born Maxwell Lemuel Roach



In a profession star-crossed by early deaths — especially the bebop division — Max Roach at this writing is a shining survivor, one of the last living giants from the birth of bebop. He and Kenny Clarke instigated a revolution in jazz drumming that persists to this day; instead of the swing approach of spelling out the pulse with the bass drum, Roach shifted the emphasis to the ride cymbal. The result was a lighter, far more flexible texture, giving drummers more freedom to explore the possibilities of their drum kits and drop random "bombs" on the snare drum, while allowing bop virtuosos on the front lines to play at faster speeds. To this base, Roach added sterling qualities of his own — a ferocious drive, the ability to play a solo with a definite storyline, mixing up pitches and timbres, the deft use of silence, the dexterity to use the brushes as brilliantly as the sticks

Certainley worth mentioning

Having seen one Thomas Larkin Esq. in performance for the umpteenth time yesterday I submit his name for recognition as being above Dave Grohl in the current crop of best drummers in the world.

Both have provided percussive services for Killing Joke, Larkin on Pandemonium and Grohl on the eponymous Killing Joke, originally entitled The Death & Resurrection Show.

Rock family trees are fun.
