    I have to agree with Carl Palmer he is very underrated and is a great drummer IMO

    Nice. :D

    Anyway, great list. I definitely agree with almost all of them.

    Good pick with D.H. Peligro, he's criminally overlooked.
    Although he lost it towards the end there. I think Bedtime for Democracy could've been a great record if he had played more than one drumbeat the entire album. He kind of ruins it for me.

    i think "bedtime for democracy" is a pretty bad album overall, to be honest.

    i think everything the band wrote after "plastic surgery disasters" took a severe dip in quality.


    also, i do like mitch mitchell a lot but not enough for my top 25...
    he and stewart copeland were two of the "big" drummers i considered.

    Whaaat? No love for Frankenchrist?
    I agree that BFD wasn't as good as their earlier work to begin with, but there were some interesting ideas that could've been better had D.H. been conscious during the album's recording. I honestly can't even listen to that record on headphones, the non-stop blast beats give me a headache.

    I have always held you in such high standards since I joined the forums. I saw this list and was like no mention of, and, what about. I then remembered the heading. "afterstasis' 25 favorite drummers" It did not say who you thought was the best just your favorite. So you still get my vote for poster of the year. To be honest a lot of these drummers I have not heard being I did not listen to there band. Shame on me.

    Nice to see Carl Palmer & Bill Ward, both very underrated drummers.

    i don't believe in "best drummers/bands/fiddlers", to be honest.

    i'll take one technically poor, no-named drummer who plays in a way that connects with me personally over a million neil pearts.

    try giving some of those artists a listen. they may not do anything for you, but who knows... you may find a new favorite! :)

    i'm still surprised we haven't gotten any asia in rock band. i think it's definitely our most likely bet for getting to play some of carl's parts.

    Asia would be great, but as far as ex Yes bands I want some of The Firm :)

    Trent Reznor's drum machine is faster than all of them.

    But seriously, good list. I was surprised to see Keith Moon, despite me loving his style. I thought you weren't a fan? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    Hmmm... I'm wondering who I'm thinking of. The person in question liked Quadrophenia, but wasn't a fan of Who's Next.

    Of course, I also prefer the former.

    i enjoy both albums immensely.
    i could do without a lot of the post-quadrophenia tunes, but there are still quite a few good ones during that period.

    Han Bennink but no Hamid Drake? Denied!

    that's quite a list, not being a drummer I doubt I could name 25 drummers total. My favs would be Danny Carey - Tool, Mike Portnoy - Dream Theatre, Keith Moon - The Who, and Mitch Mitchel - Hendrix. I could name 100's of other band members, just not many drummers who have stood out to me. Tony Dixon is one of my fav drummers, but he's a local. Amazing guy, played in 3 groups with him and he never ceased to amaze me.

    i like drake a lot too, but bennink's performance on "machine gun" is beyond incredible... "schwarzwaldfahrt" is just bonus points on top of that.

    I'm very surprised to see that you're a Palmer fan and a Cobham fan.

    Believe me this was not a knock on your list at all. You did not say this is who you think is the best. I am not a drummer or a musician for that madder. I do not know enough of the technical aspect of playing music to really judge it for technique. So for me a best of list is only good if I like the song or band. As far as drummers go I only know a few by name and others by band. I will listen to as many on your list of the ones I do not know when I get time. Always like listening to new stuff to me. I got plenty of room on my IPOD to give them a listen.
