    While there are loads of drummers on that list whose bands I am
    Not necessarily a fan of, there's no denying the talent of a guy like Mike Portnoy or any of the other guys on the list. It is however suffering from a distinct lack of Jimmy Chamberlin. I don't know how many people here are Smashing Pumpkins or Zwan fans, but that guy can do some sick things behind the kit.

      Where the fuck is Inferno?

      Hellhammer?

      Varg? (may not have been the most technically proficient drummer but he could sound fucking frantic when he wanted to).

      Only drummers of worth on that list, IMO, are Peart and Travis Barker. :/

        This list sucks, anything other spot other than number 1 for Peart is rediculous!

          Bassically.

          1. Joey Jordison (Slipknot, Rob Zombie)
          2. Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold)
          3. Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree)

          I've not heard of/listened to Dream Theater or Porcupine Tree, however, the other bands on that list are utter shit and a waste of sound space. Don't bother bitching me out for it because 1, I'll lose respect for you, and 2, you're wasting your time.

          Neil Peart=Canadian. Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that he's behind two American drummers and a Brit? I think it's all bullshit. Fuck this list.

            I found it amusing that for once, John Bonham was not listed. Otherwise I could give two shits about the list.

              The ignorance of this list is manifested in the absence of names like

              Louie Bellson, Jon Hiseman, Billy Cobham, Carmine Appice, Keith Moon, John Bonham, Ian Paice, Bill Ward, Tommy Aldridge, Simon Phillips, Joe Franco...

                Are we not also shocked/dismayed by the lack of Bill Ward or John Bonham or Keith Moon?

                  I suppose so, but let's face it: If we took 3 random people out of that list and put those 3 guys in, somewhere else on the interwebs people would start bitching and moaning

                      That list is The 20 greatest drummers of the last 25 years: http://www.musicradar.com/rhythm/gre...are-in-270334/

                      That's why the likes of Bonham, Moon and Ward aren't there.

                      I don't know every drummer on the list, but the ones I do aren't exactly shit at playing the drums.

                      For example, Stephen Morris of New Order, previously Joy Division, a band who I rate very highly. I love Joy Division for the same reasons I love Black Sabbath. They're one of those bands where every member was important, not least of all the drummer.

                        Or no uber-cool Lars Ulrich. I could cry a river of tears for that alone.

                        Gosh, yet another awfully lame list of alleged 'Greatest' ones of these very meh bands.

                          Yeah, Chamberlin is an awesome and very underrated drummer, IMO.

                          But lists like these, they're always very subjective. Personally, I can't take a list that features Nicko McBrain very seriously and there are a few names I'd like to see on this one, like Dave Lombardo and Gene Hoglan. But what can you do...

                          If I had to make a list, I'd write Cozy Powell somewhere on there and then 43,084 drummers later, Vinnie Appice - hipster doofus
