Let's keep this going with favourite drummers.  The only reason I'm doing this is because I've been going through my music collection a lot this past week.  So here are my top 10 in no particular order with the exception of # 1.

1)  Neil "the Professor" Peart (Rush)--best drummer of all time imo
2)  Ginger Baker (Cream)
3)  Bill Bruford (Yes/King Crimson)
4)  Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
5)  Gar Samuelson (early Megadeth)
6)  Buddy Rich
7)  Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band)--hate DMB, but think Carter is phenomenal
8 )  Bill Ward (Black Sabbath)
9)  Cozy Powell (Rainbow/Yngwie Malmsteen/Black Sabbath)
10)  John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)

Are we including percussionists in this discussion?

Well off the top of my head, without putting a whole lot of thought into it and in no particular order...

-Any drummer or percussionist that played with Santana

-Tito Puente

-Stewart Copeland (The Police)

-John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)

-Carl Barrett (Bob Marley and the Wailers)

-Tony Williams (One of the best Jazz drummers of all time)

   More later.

Stewart Copeland
Dave Grahl
Keith Moon
Larry Mullen, Jr.
Neil Peart
Richard "Ringo" Starkey
Phil Rudd
Tony Williams

I've just realised that U2 and Rush are the only two bands in which all members make my favourites list. No wonder both have lasted over thirty years.

Same for me with The Who.  The only thing holding them back are their egos and that two of them are dead now.  Wink

Wouldn't you think that Keith Moon is the Animal of the non-muppet world?

U2 and Rush (my favorite of all time) both have longevity and popularity because they are not only stellar musicians who write good songs and have not been corrupted by the same things that take down other bands.  Iron Maiden comes close though they have had some line up changes.  One can only think how far The Who and Led Zeppelin could have gone had certain members actually have stayed away from certain destructive behaviors.

Yeah, pretty much.  The Who abhors an ego vacuum.

I believe Animal is the Keith Moon of the Muppet world. Neither Jim Henson nor anyone else related to the Muppets has ever claimed a particular drummer as the inspiration, but since each of the other members is obviously based upon a particular jazz or rock musician, it stands to reason that Animal is too.

Good points, all.

I'm going to say that Phil Collins is my favourite.  But only as a drummer and backup singer.  Oh, okay, he was a great frontman for Genesis after Gabriel left until they entered their pop schock phase.  Seriously, though, I think Phil really is an accomplished drummer.  And oh, hey, what do you all think about Carl Palmer?

Stewart Copeland

No argument from me.

Quote
Larry Mullen, Jr.

Is he the one U2 member who is not Christian, or is it Adam Clayton, the bass player?  I always forget.

Quote
Neil Peart

Okay.  But you know, I think he suffers from serious delusions of grandeur when it comes to his lyric writing.  Or maybe it just looks like that.  (I expect a deluge of posts from Rush fans voicing their  extreme displeasure with my post at any second.  laugh)  My buddies and I in high school used to have a field day laughing at them.  Of course, you could say this about any number of progressive bands that started in the 70's.....so maybe we were unfair and should have made fun of these other bands too.  Come to think of it, we did. Just not as much as we did with Rush.  Sorry, Rush fans.  I actually really admire the band, even though their music is not exactly my thing.  Geddy Lee seems like a pretty cool guy to me. 

Quote
Richard "Ringo" Starkey

Really?  Why, may I ask?  Is it because you like the Beatles? I do like some of the catchy little tunes Ringo penned....like "Octopus' Garden".

I used to be a big RUSH fan, but then I kind of outgrew them. No doubt they are tremendous musicians. Neil Peart is brilliant, as are Lifeson and Lee.

I like the way he always seems to be having fun while he's playing, and the experimentation he was able to do after they stopped touring. He's really more accomplished than a lot of people give him credit for. Also, I like his songwriting. "Octopus' Garden" is quite possibly my favourite Beatles song.
