Hungryfreak;929094 said:I vote Steve Flynn.
JukeBoxHero;929972 said:I vote for him along side Neil Peart and Bill Bruford. (Yeah, I just really got into Atheist today. Only matter of time since I had Cynic's Focus).
Limelight;932931 said:I've always thought that Peart is probably the most overrated drummer ever. What he does almost always sounds very good, but the number of "holy ****" moments in Peart's drumming are much fewer and far between than Bonham and (especially) Moon. He is very constant, though, and the best of these three at holding a beat. (Ignore the fact that these two gentlemen are dead.)Bonham is great, but no as good as Peart. Also kinda overrated. Moon, although definitely not what one would call finessed and not being able to hold a beat to save his live (either due to a lack of ability, or, more likely, boredom) is, I think, the best musician. Creatively, he blows almost any drummer out of the water. Only Moon could bash stuff is such a seemingly random manner, and have it all make perfect sense musically. Listen to the opening of Young Man Blues, or the end of Love, Reign O'er Me. If almost anyone else tried to do that, it'd just sound like a guy bashing on a drum set; when Moon did it, every hit sounded intentional and musical.I should note that Buddy Rich kicks the living **** out of all three, though, at everything, including Moon-style fills. He could do **** at sixty that half his age couldn't do.

blue_dragonzero;942324 said:RUSH! RUSH! RUSH! I am a Rush fanboy, and I approve this message.Seriously, Bonham is below Moon and Peart. Being overindulgent it better than sticking with the music, especially for drummers. And Moon and Peart both know that. Bonham doesn't stick out nearly as much as the other two. And it hurts him in the long run...along with $200 tickets.

blue_dragonzero;942404 said:Not as much the other two though.

Rockbandfan23467;942583 said:Ya know that Earthquake in China?That was Moon and Bonham drum dueling in Hell.
Julio_Strikes_Back;942592 said:No, they were dueling in heaven. The vibrations of the pads and cymbals broke through the dimension barrier.Also the Bonham hate in this thread is saddening.
