The lights are on
You like Godspeed You Black Emperor, but we prefer Mozart. It doesn't matter because here we all dance to the same tune. Let's all hang out and we can make beautiful music together.
I would say Neil Peart, the drummer from Rush.
The recently passed away drummer of Avenged Sevenfold
Danny carry from tool. Best drummer ever. IMho
- i died
Martin Skaroupka from Cradle of Filth, his combination of crazy speed and ridiculous technique is unmatched.
Dave Macintosh(Dragonforce) for his speed, Neil Peart(Rush) for technicality.
One died in India. Three was tracked down in Brazil. I am the only one left. I am The Second Musketeer
I would have to say a few come to mind Mike Portnoy, who the Rev of Avenged who I also like a lot,idolized and crafted his drumming after, Vinny Paul he is insane on the drums.Joey Jordison Dave Grohl/Taylor Hawkins and The mad man the late Keith Moon along with the late John Bonham all these guys are beasts.
I love Lars Ulrich and he is really good but I dont think of him as being up there with some of the best as far as the greats go even though Metallica is one of my favorite bands.
Longineu Parsons III from Yellowcard.
Joe Rickard from Red and Jeff Gilbert from Kutless.
Mike. Mangini, the current drummer of Dream Theater is pretty good. Also John Bohnam from Led Zeppelin was amazing.
Travis Barker, guy is absolutely amazing.
Keith Moon, and Neil Pert are my favourites
Josh Freese, Danny Carrey, Travis Barker, and Joey Jordison.
1. John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
2. Neil Peart (Rush)
3. Stewart Copeland (The Police, and Spyro the Dragon soundtrack)
4. Levon Helm
5. Chad Smith
Unlike heavy metal band drummer (Travis Barker, The Rev, Joey Jordinson, etc.) these guys have more than speed, they got rhythm, chops, and keep tempo like a boss.
Out of curiosity does anyone here actually play drums? I know I do.
