Really, Jay Weinberg is on there but not his dad, Max? And while Baker was very talented in my opinion he never showed it unless he was teaching a seminar, I did see him do some crazy stuff with the hi hat pedal.

Who's the best? We can argue that all day.

What we can't argue is 'What is the public's perception of who is the best?'

Well, MusicRadar.com gives us the answer with the results of its poll in which the public declares The Greatest Drummers of All Time.

Since it so heavily skews to drummers the Forumites hold in such reverence -- the studio standouts who played 70s soft rock and the clinicians I call 'yesterday's YouTubers' -- I'm confident there will be wide agreement about the Top 25 Goats!"


30. Meg White (the public has spoken and it's 50.8% female!).

29. Jay Weinberg

28. Tommy Lee

27. Benny Greb

26. "Evil" Mario Duplantier (the greatest drummer many of you have never heard, as he's current).

25. James Gadsen

24. Taylor Hawkins

23. Jojo Meyer

22. Josh Freese

21. Marco Minnemann

20. Joey Jordison

19. Clyde Stubblefield

18. Matt Cameron

17. Nicko McBrain (Actual last name!)

16. Travis Barker

15. Chad Smith

14. Dave Lombardo

13. Dave Grohl

12. Phil Collins

11. Jeff Porcaro

10. Billy Cobham

9. Mike Portnoy

8. Steward Copeland

7. Steve Gadd

6. Danny Carey

5. Keith Moon

4. Ginger Baker

3. Buddy Rich

2. John Bonham

1. Neil Peart

Colaiuta (sp) and Steve Smith did not make it?

These lists are so stupid and this one might take the cake.
I like them. It draws a lot of posts, some funny, some serious and some like yours, but in any case, they do draw attention and produce some interesting conversation!
