    Greatest drummers of all time

    Ok, since Leif isn't gonna start a new music thread, I will. Greatest drummers, jazz, rock, whatever, dead or alive, ever

    Ok, among the dead there is Buddy Rich and Keith Moon, that,s a given.

    Among the living drumming legends, my nomination is this good ole Canadian boy.

    I would say Rick Allen from Def Leppard. Its very impressive how he came back after losing his arm in a car accident and over came the odds to play again

    Sorry I couldnt find a better video of him playing with one arm


    Stay safe my son. See you around thanksgiving!

    THE best? Hmmmmm. I'm also an anti-wanker when it comes to drums. I love a good drummer that knows when to hold back.

    Charlie Watts - cool as a cucumber. A little light on the skins but amazingly versatile. Excellent jazz drummer too.

    Max Weinberg - Good call Buck! The best drummer in show biz! Like Charlie Watts, but he brings it every night.

    John Bonham - the greatest. He can take the craziest time signature and make it rock the f**k out. Four Sticks is my fav.

    Dave Grohl - I'm not a fan of the Foo Fighters, but he made Nirvana what it is. Simple and hard-hitting. The drum sound on In Utero makes me drool. He was great with QOTSA on the album Songs for the Deaf.

    Lars Ulrich (Metallica) should be mentioned.
