Not in any specific order -

1. Mike Portnoy
2. Bill Bruford
3. Phil Collins
4. Neal Peart
5. Carl Palmer
6. John Bonham
7. Terry Bozzio
8. Prairie Prince
9. Pat Mastellotto
10. Ginger Baker


Bonus drummer - 11. Zoltan Csorsz (Swedish jazz/rock drummer with The Flower Kings, Karmakanic and The Tangent)

Ringo, Keith and Nick were so-so drummers. Townsend even says Keith was a terrible drummer - he was all over the place.

As I mentioned above, Ringo was able to do what the song needed from a feel perspective. And even though he lacked technical prowess, he was quite innovative. I can't think of clear precedents for his parts on Ticket to Ride, Rain, Tomorrow Never Knows, Come Together, etc. Many accomplished drummers still sing his praises:


(Note that they start this video with Rain.)

As for Keith, he was all over the place, which would probably have been a disaster for most conventional bands. But in a lot of ways, he made The Who's sound. He was not a timekeeper, but instead played musical parts to further enhance a song.




(Note how the camera shifts from focusing on Roger to Keith. In what other performance do they focus mainly on the drummer?)

Yes, and other things are corrupted about it, like the message icon, and , it seems, it's ability to take it's place in the thread list based on latest post time.

Sadly, I cannot do anything about those, Not sure if Krissy can.
