Rolling Stone Readers Pick the Best Drummers of All Time

Recommended Posts

That actually wasn't as bad as I feared. I'm delighted that Stewart Copeland and Michael Shrieve made the list. They definitely should have included Yes' Alan White though, he's a powerful drummer.

Another friggin' list. :angry: At least the top spot was correct., although Buddy Rich could've shown Bonzo a few tricks. Very surprised that Charlie Watts wasn't on there. I would've definitely put him above Ringo, and that's not a knock on Mr. Starkey.

Well at least Bonzo is 1, and my crush since 13... Mike Shrieve :wub: :wub:

Can't say I had a crush on him like you did Hotplant :D but what a great drummer !

It's very rare that Rolling Stone and the people who read their magazine get things right. Glad to see a list on here that makes sense. It's very rare with them.

When it comes to such lists there is no "right", it's all a matter of opinion, not fact.

Kind of shocked to see that Charlie Watts didn't make the list...especially given how much that magazine is always kissing the Rolling Stones ass.

Shrieve making the list is a welcome surprise...never cared for Santana after he left. And, hotplant is right...he was sooo young at Woodstock;

he looked like he was still in high school.

I'm rather surprised Ginger Baker is #9. I thought he'd be a lot higher up.

What a strange list.Bonzo no1 is fair but the rest?!? Often these votings were manipulated.And the result smells a bit like that.

--I talked to an old musician who was even onstage with the Beatles and he said that there was a saying in Europe in the 60ths:You wont find

alot of bass players being as good as Mccartney.But also you would not find alot of drummers being as bad as Ringo.--I like him playing the Beatles songs

but this was supposed to be a voting for drummers.The Police in opposit to Carl Palmer and Alan White??.
