    Not a poll since I only would remember ONE - Neil Peart of Rush. If you've seen them in concert, you'll know why he is the KING. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    #4. Vinnie Paul of Pantera

    #5. Stewart Copeland of The Police

    #6. Mike Portnoy of Dream Theatre

    #7. Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience

    #8. John Bonham of Led Zepplin

    #9. Lars Ulrich of Metallica

    #10. Travis Barker of Blink 182/Box Car Racer

    I may not like Lars for the whole Napster thing, but I still think he is one hell of a drummer. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Neil Peart has some definite talent, I would say him if I had to choose just one. I have downloaded some of his solos that he performs at concerts, and damn that guy can really rock it out!

    Neil Peart is an amazing drummer... I watched a couple of his drumming videos 'a work in progress' all the songs from one of his albums... that dude is bad ass.
    Mitch Mitchell & John Bonham two awsome drummers as well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Bonham sounds like he's playing double bass through his one pedal hitting the upbeats also. ...and his triplet fills /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif.. Love his style. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif
    Lars used to be my favorite till i discovered pantera. Lars has slowed down over the years. Very talented though. Played A LOT of Metallica stuff in my high school rock band.
    My favorite drummer I would have to say is Vinnie Paul of pantera.. I spent a few years figuring out how to play some of his double bass songs, awsome stuff.. most of his stuff is wicked fast and clean as hell.. now that is talent.

    Neil Peart! No contest if you ask me! Not that many others aren't great or awesome, I just think Neil Peart is at the top.
