pretty solid lists there, good to see Topper Headon from the Clash on there, i've always thought he was under-rated. and Moe Carlson from protest the hero as well. Anyone else think it was kind of strange Jojo Mayer was listed as a rock drummer?

The compilers seem ignorant of anyone to have emerged after 1990.

I disagree they had Carter Beauford, Dave Grohl, Sean Kinney, Danny Carey, Mike Portnoy and the dude from incubus on the list.

Yep, even so, it's hardly up to date.

Hmmm, this doesn't look good- no Micheal Derosier, Mark Craney, or Andy Newmark; Jim Keltner, Kenny Aronoff, Russ Kunkel and other good people relegated to the "honorable mention" booby-prize list.

Yes, but Downwind was his best IMO and worthy of being MUCH higher up.

Marimba, timpani plus deadly kit playing. The period of music from about 2:50 with Mike Oldfield's solo segueing into Pierre's buzzy drum solo (around 4:15 to a bit after 6 mins) has some real spine tingling moments - especially cool when played LOUD :)

As with any of these lists, I disagree with tons of the entries but that's okay - all good stuff.

How the hell can Neil Peart & Mike Portnoy rank above Simon Phillips in the multi skilled section. I mean, c'mon!

You already know the answer - they're better known. Brian Blade at #79 of the Most Skilled says it all.

And you'll never see a list that acknowledges the fact that Earl Palmer, Hal Blaine or Bernard Purdie played on more recordings than anyone and shaped the way people hear music.

Or Charlie Watts, possibly the greatest player never to hit the snare & hihats at the same time!

Quite interesting subject. I have been reading several articles where Charlie is either "recognized or bashed" for playing like that through years.

Funny - Ringo is always miles ahead of Charlie in these lists, even though Charlie can play jazz. Apart from Ringo's massive profile, I think the extra imagination and creativity of Ringo and The Beatles generally makes the difference to people. no doubt many are swayed by cool, interesting beats, no matter what the technique. Me too.
