I say taking all the different qualities that define 'best' into consideration- John "Bonzo" Bonham.

Yes, I'm a drummer because of the Dr. of drums. Been a rush head a long time, which made my choice a difficult one. What tipped the scale is what Bonham could do with a 6pc. I saw R40 last summer, it was incredible. The master can still rip it up! Can I change my vote?

Bonham is great but my vote goes to Keith Moon--he was the most entertaining while still be technically brilliant. When it comes to pure skill though some of the best drummers rarely made it on stage--people like Hal Baine, Al Jackson & Bernard Purdie--all great drummers who played on some classic tracks.

He's not the best, but the one-armed drummer from Def Lepard deserves a mention, or he would if I could remember his name.

Rick Allen and yes Moonie was great. Extremely fast hands and helped the melody flow of each song by creating a similar melody on the skins.

Jon Fishman isn't too shabby either, ployrythmic drumming isn't easy!!!  I love me some Phish occasionally...

Stewart Copeland was probably one of my first influences (I was 14) and is worthy for the top 5 IMO.

He's a bit of a dickhead, but Phil Collins, I grudgingly say, has a good ear for rhythm, but he's going deaf now apparently.  

Dave Grohl, again, he's not going to be the best.  But singing and playing all the instruments pretty much for the first Foo Fighters album.  He's got a great sense of humour too; his music video's (I don't know who Directed them??) are classics, especially in the mid 90's with the success of MTV (a phenomenon that I still can't decide on).

@painit4word

Stewart Copeland also smashed up Sting's ribs with a guitar (someone needed to do it),  That gets my vote.

Ginger Baker!  Fantastic Drummer, but a cnut of a man!

I agree on both counts...I dig the new foo fighters tune, and anyone who appreciates music can see Phil Collins' contribution...

John Bonham

Mickey Hart for creativity and overall percussion skill

Stewart Copeland

Butch Trucks and Jaimoe from the Allman Bros.....

Neal Peart is amazing....

Hard to pick one because they all have different styles.  I would have to say Neal Peart is probably the best after seeing Rush in Greensboro, Nc last year....the still jam pretty good.   My favorite band of all time is Led Zeppelin....I love how insane Bonzo is....used to put tinfoil in the bass drum to get some thundering sounds.   

And last Dave Lombardo from Slayer....anyone who can drum that freakin fast gets my vote.  Good Googily Moogily that guy can set a wicked pace for some good thrash metal.

I agree.  Zeppelin is also my favorite band so that kinda makes me like biased.

Travis Barker originally from Blink 182. I have/had no time for the band but as modern day drummers go he can't be overlooked. He's incredibly talented in all genres I'd pick him over a drummer from my favourite band kinda thing as you do tend to be bias. I'd have then said Dom Howard from Muse who is phenomenonal drummer one of the best still active but not the greatest ever 

Travis Barker gets my vote
