Who is the best Drummer in the worldPage 2 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
The old koori bloke who used to drum to a radio out the front of the old Sydney City Hoyts Complex in the 80's / 90's. He used a couple of paint tins and plastic bins with 2 sticks off the ground.

I asked him if he took requests once but he just kept on drumming away to "Wipeout."

As for another one .............. Paul McCartney since he did all the drumming on the Beatles albums as Ringo was too bloody hopeless as a drummer.

I agree with a few already mentioned, but couldn't pick one.

Have to give another mention to the guy from Def Leppard...he could still kick it even after losing an arm.

And we all know Drummers get the chicks (even bad ones)...lol.

Who knows why...

Sorry Caves but it was before my time and it was for a history project I did at school in the olden days.

You can find some legendary drum solo mp3's if you do a good search some of them include some from the big bad era too.

I lived nextdoor to him and his relatives for 5 years.....

Only they were from Thursday Island.....

Funerals were the worst times.....5 days of the metal rubbish bins......

Tony Royster Junior.....

Maybe not yet, but I'm sure he will be one day. He was only 12 when this video was made, and I think it is amazing.....

technic - matey, if your gunna mention the culture club, you should also pay homage to Yamaha RY30 drum machine :D

i dont think anybody here has given "rob hirst" a mention from midnight oil..
i cant think of any Oz drummers that can beat him.


what do Ginger Baker and 7-11 coffee have in common
they both suck without Cream

how do you get 2 drummers to play in time?
Shoot one.

Oh wait...you wanted 'best' ...wrong thread...my bad.

There's a drummer named "Future Man" who's with the Bela Fleck band. Here's a link of them playing in Scottland.

Amazing band. Bela has won more geners at the Grammy Awards than anyone in history.

Terry Bozzio from Frank Zappa fame...Even if you don't like music you can't help but sit in awe of this guys passion for what he does, especially on the 'Baby Snakes' video.

WELL
Being involved in the present industry, I would have to give it to a local lad.
Grant Collins by far.
Closely followed by my son who plays for Minor Offence!!

unless he can play over his shoulders like Neil Peart he doesn't qualify in my book.
check out his drum set-up when you have time.
