Mine is Chris Adler , he was a bass player who took up the drumsand started tearing it up.

As the best drummer goes I would have to go with Virgil Donati

Tell me what you think

Chris Adler is a good choice, but for my favorite im going to have to go with either Derek Roddy from Hate Eternal or Flo Mounier from Cryptopsy. And for the best i will go with the late John Bonham

It's always a difficult question when you can't separate the awesome drummer from the awesome band (as in Rush/Led Zep).

1. Neil Peart
2. John Bonham
3. Buddy Rich

Then there's all those Drummers' drummers that have insane chops but I can't listen to for more than 15 minutes. Weckl, Donati, Bozzio, Wackerman, ...

A couple of drummers that I've discovered in recent years that are worth checking out (drummerworld.com): Benny Greb, JoJo Mayer, Keith Carlock.

I cant beleive no one has mentioned Danny Carey from Tool..... the man is a musical genius...... as far as the greatest........ Jon Bohnam.

So my top 3 would be.....

I don't know a lot about drummers, but I've been told Dave Grohl has perfect timing and does everything pretty much on one take. Plus he is the drummer of my fav band!

Yeah Grohl is kind of not a drummer anymore tho... collaborates here and there but that's pretty much it. He was well timed in Nirvana and went really well along with the flow though, I must give you that

Travis barker is a fantastic drummer, check out some of his solos on you tube. Im not big into rap or anything, but his solo for soulja boy is sick.

Soulja boy is not rap it is trash...i listen to real hiphop. I like when he collabed with west coast rapper The Game on a song called Compton. i seen it on aol or somthing... that was sick

Its hard to say who the best is with any instrument, just because styles are so different. My favs are:

Ægir Mikaelsson from Borknagar
Richard Christy from Death and Iced Earth
Gene Hoglan from Death, SYL, and the drummer for Dethklok on Metalocalypse

Svartorm Said Hoglan first, if there is a drummer on this planet better than Neil Peart, it's Gene Hoglan. Richard Christie is awesome too, he used to live about a 20 minute drive from me back in the day, used to see him at concerts etc. once in a while, but he hasn't been back here or even to St. Louis in ages. Someone said Flo Mounier too, another amazingly talented guy, ridiculously fast, and dead on timing.

My favorite besides Gene would probably have to be Gar Samuelsson, who was the original drummer for Megadeth, or Mike Smith from Suffocation. Gar was amazing, really sucks that by the time most people got a chance to hear him he was a full blown junkie and his playing had started to suffer horribly(and of course he died very soon after Megadeth started getting noticed). Mike Smith is just a beast, not only does he play damn well, but he looks mean doing it! Watching him at a live show you almost expect him to pound his kit to dust by the time the set is over. Immolation has always consistently had very good drummers too, and the way they mesh their guitar and drum sounds in the majority of their stuff just sounds incredibly cool.

Also a funny side note for the guy that mentioned Danny Carey from TOOL, who is also crazy good. My Cousin's Ex Husband was a classmate of Danny's while he was a student at the University of Missouri Kansas City school of music, and said even then he was amazing. Supposedly a pretty nice guy too. Small world I guess.

If we are talking purely in terms of Technical Facility, Death's other Drummer, Sean Reinert was miles ahead of Hoglan. Hoglan was good, espescially in Strapping Young Lad, where his simplistic, regimented style really fitted the music.

Peart is one of the best, even within a non-jazz setting his technical facility is obviously immensely developed.

Perhaps the single best drummer in terms of pure technical terms is Apt Q258. His dexterity is beyond anything I've heard from anyone else outside of India.

The other cool thing about Mike Smith is hes completely self-taught, which is probably why he has such a unique style.

Haha, pretty good call Mastodon, I'm more of a Hoglan guy but Sean Reinert is a very underrated guy. Not to mention I absolutely love Human, My favorite album of there's after they got out of the old school Death metal thing and started getting more progressive. Suicide Machine and Flattening of Emotions= top tracks.

I don't think I knew Mike was self taught Svartorm, thanks for sharing that. If I'm home next time they play a show in the area I'll definitely have shake his hand and throw some extra praise his way! Suffo is such a killer live band, though it's still a shame that Terrence Hobbs left. Hopefully the guy they have in his spot on guitar now sounds solid live.

I'm not a musician, but I have few friends who play drums, and they always brag on Tool's drummer. i have heard too many discussions about how cool it would be if he and Les Claypool were in a band together. I think you probably need to be a musician to fully comprehend it's significance.
