I don't rate drummers only by their "drumrolling", but also by thier abilty keep time and to "swing" and "groove"..... as it were...so I'm sure some of you may really disagree with my choices.

But here's my "Top whatever" in no particular order:

Bonzo

Ringo

Ron Solo (my brother) :)

Bill Ward

Reg Isidore

Ginger Baker

Mitch Mitchell

Neil Peart

Frank Beard

Clive Bunker

Carmine Appice

Dave Holland

Herman Rarebell

Tommy Aldrige

Phil Rudd

Cozy Powell

Aynsley Dunbar

Alex Van Halen

Steve Smith

Billy Cobham

Kenny Jones

Scott Travis

Mike Shrieve

Ian Paice

Simon Kirke

Charlie Watts

and on, and on, and on!

Well, in that case, 99.9% of all humans don't still listen to guys that play in bands that wear their big sister's makeup! :lol:

Most people have heard of Neil Peart. I think he qualifies as a progressive drummer.

There's nothing wrong with your chose of your personal fave Top 5 Drummers, Excitable87: you have a pretty cool list there of great groovy Drummers! Myself I like all kinds of "music" which leads into all kinds of Music genre fields and it's quite difficult just chosen only "5" extraodinary Drummers from alist of thousands of incrediable Drummers. So with that said heres just a few of the "many" Skillful Master groovie Drummers that I like and admire: Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne & Black Oak Arkansa/I was very surprise Tommy was in Black Oak Arkansa..-we all know Tommy truelly Trailblazed in that band, too!), Dave DuCey (WWIII/Mandy Lion Band) incrediable high energy Drummer, Ray Luzier (Wicked Alliance, David Lee Roth & ARMY of Anyone) amazing/complex Drummer to watch so is Bobby Jarzombek (Halford & Painmuseum) they play backwards/look like their double jointed are something I'm like that must really hurt to do that but it seems it doesn't bother them at all! Okay, that's 4 Master Skill Drummers that I like and the 5th would be the Octopus from the BADLANDS Eric Singer (Badlands & Kiss) his all mighty gritty gator arms! Their all phenomanel and their live performances along w/their music collegues in crime are just speehless to witness/their really really great at what they do. :o 8) 8O That's alot of work! Peace.

Doobie, if we're on speaking terms :lol: that's an excellent DVD in my opinion. The sound is phenominal!

In addition to Rising In The East, I suggest checking out Twisted Sister's Live at Wacken to check out another veteran hard rock act that hasn't lost their flair!

Poets - o'course we are, Doofus. And, for once, you're right about something!!! hahahaha. That DVD does have GREAT sound. I was totally astounded at the quality of that DVD. However, as I've mentioned to mrmetal, I thought Halford sang a couple of songs way too slow. So slowly, in fact, that the band had to adjust to his speed. I also noted that Halford doesn't look well through the eyes in that show. I think he might have been ailing. Hell, he never stood totally erect in Turbo Lover. What was that bent-over position about for that entire song (no obscene comments needed on that one guys!). He hardly ever held his head up throughout the show. The rest of the band was great though. I was just a lil disappointed in Robbie every once in a while on this one - must have been under the weather.

Yeah, I know what you mean. You can tell he's gotten older for sure. It's a world of difference to compare Bruce Dickinson to Rob Halford in the way they act on stage. Bruce is practically as active as he was back in the 80s, if not more so now! Rob on the other hand is rather boring to watch.
