    Michael Shrieve at Woodstock -- Not saying it's technically better than say Black Page, but it's my favorite because this unknown 19 year old kid in this relatively unknown band came out and blew everyone away at the biggest concert of all time.





    But if I were voting for the choices you posted, a21, which are all great, I'd go with Black Page.

    That was easily one of the best drum performances ever, live. I say we start another poll for that one. It is amazing tho.

    Yeah, that is awesome, but I don't think Steve ever played with them live.

    There's some insane stuff from Vinnie Colaiuta on the Buffalo CD from Zappa that Axl recommended to me. Especially on the Torture never stops.

    Check this one of Vinnie with one of my favorite guitar players, Mike Landau

    I dont want to sound like a sell out or anything but honestly the one that will forever be burned into my mind is John Bonham and Moby Dick. I remember watching the Song Remains the Same with my dad when I was younger and it will forever stay with me. Maybe not extremely technical but still a great performance for me. But from your list I chose Black Page. As usual another good post A21.

    I'm guessing Terry Bozzio.

    I voted for Mitch Mitchell. I've always loved his beat for fire and the fills are awesome. I thought it was kind of weird how you added just the drum solo for Ginger Baker. Drum solos are always pretty boring imo.

    Neil Peart all the way for me...not only is he...um...whats the word...awesome but he is also a great writer, i highly recommend his book "Ghost Rider" has a lot of explaination behind the lyrical content of the "Vapor Trails" album. btw im not say in all the other drummers suck, they all get honorable mention, but pearts my personal fav

    lol i got a keith moon quote for ya

    "drum solos are ****ing boring. Any kind of solo is. It detracts from the group identity.-Keith moon, rolling stones interview"

    I like his drumming in the band more than any drum solo (exept wont get fooled again) When it come to druming In a normal song he cannot be beat
    But in solos I say Pert and bonham beat him

    I'm going with Don Brewer. I love Grand Funk Railroad, so I figured I'd toss my fanboyism in with a certain other poster on here. But really, I really just like Brewer more than all these other drummers. He's certainly got more feeling in his drumming than any of these guys (especially Peart. That guy is a machine, but he drums like one too. He must have been the model for the Guitar Hero 3 drumming animations). Also, compare the size of Brewer's drum set to the sets of every other drummer on here. Brewer also knew that drum solos are not all about speed; he always made his solos have life, carrying a tune all their own. IMHO, he's Keith Moon drumming with an idea of where he's going with it.
