I don't want to get into another this drummer is better than that drummer debate so I'm just gonna post this up. It's Jason Bowld from Pitchshifter. Guy is pretty good, plus I like solos that are more beat oriented than just randomly hitting the drums.

I really HATE Travis Barker because of all the idiots that think he's the best thing since sliced bread, hence my pot shot at him. Jason Bowld is fucking badass! To be honest, as long as Neil Peart is still drumming, no one is better, but there are a lot of drummers out there that no one knows about that are amazing. Personally, I can't play the drums at all, but I do love watching people play drums and listening to it. When I listen to music I always key in on the drums. Mad respect.

his ability to throw his drumsitcks in the air and his inability to keep a constant run with his double bass pedal were the most impressive part of that video.

I never said any of us were good at drumming, I just hate to listen to people talk about Travis Barker and talk like he's one of the best drummers alive, when he's not even close.

Matthew McDonough

Brett Powell

Those are just off the top of my head from bands I listen to. There are a hell of a lot of drummers better than Travis Barker. I'm not saying he's bad. He can come up with some badass beats, but he doesn't hold a candle to some of the top drummers in the world.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Jason Bonham is fairly ludicrous.

My 10?

Chad Sexton- effortless doesn't even begin to describe this guy. I can confidently say without a doubt that no other drummer has ever come close to the cleanliness of execution that Chad Sexton achieves. He is definitely someone that you have to be a drummer to totally appreciate; he's not flashy and crazy, and thus the average person wouldn't appreciate one of his solos nearly as much as a drummer would. Did I mention that he scripts 3 beats into each live solo, but other than that everything in between is completely improv?

Neil Peart- perhaps the most progressive drummer of all time. He has an uncanny to blend every genre of drumming into any song he's playing, and the man writes a hell of a solo.

Buddy Rich-cliche, but in the timeframe in which he performed, his style was unheard of and still a ton of fun to watch.

Tony Williams- one of the most influential jazz drummers of the 20th century. Check out some of Miles Davis' early stuff if you'd like to hear some of him.

Dave Weckl- hell of a drummer, but more importantly had a HUGE impact on the fusion scene back in the day, and really helped create some of the beats that define fusion drumming to an extent. I also play his sticks, so I'm inclined to like the dude's playing.

Steve Smith- my favorite fusion drummer period. extremely versatile, but what I really like about him is his ability and desire to jam; he loves to hop up on stage and just jam through a solo with another musician. I.E. http://youtube.com/watch?v=HFbyJuDuccc&feature=related (not his most technical, but it's a helluvalot of fun to watch).

Billy Cobham- one of Miles Davis' original drummers and he's played with just about everyone by now. He's one of the most highly revered drummers of the last 40 years or so, and even as old as he is now, the dude can absolutely wail

Tony Royster- the original kid prodigy. He is absolutely amazing; I remember being 13 or so watching a video this kid was on when he was 11 or so and being absolutely blown away. The things he accomplished as a kid were greater than most good drummers accomplish in their entire lifetimes. Haven't heard any of his stuff now that he's older, but I've got to assume he's only gotten better.

Stewart Copeland- one of the most innovative drummers of all time. I've never heard anyone that plays like he does, and he has an all encompassing knowledge of music, not just drumming. He's the drummer for the Police, and while most people don't know who he is, you would notice his style missing from their music if they were to produce an album without him. He really does make their sound. Listen to the Zenyatta Mendatta album if you want to hear what I'm talking about.

and to round it out,

Keith Moon- no one is or was as excited, as spontaneous, as ludicrously out of control, and has Keith Moon was, and I don't think we'll see something like him ever again. He was out of control, played wrong by most standards, and had no pattern by which he followed (other than having no pattern), and yet it made for some great music. He was the single most energetic drummer to play. I mean, jesus christ, the dude made himself pass out on stage during solos on occasion. Did I mentione he was insane?


I think what you'll see out of my list (which is probably very different from most lists) is a complete understanding of music, not just drumming. Everyone listed up hear incorporates(ed) music into their drumming, not drumming into their music, which is why they're so special. It's also why most people overlook them as simply very good and not the best, but that's to be expected. Most people just don't understand music to the level that these guys all do, and that's what makes them the best.

In short, the knowledge that Music>Drumming and the ability to apply that knowledge is what seperates the good drummers from the great.

LMFAO! Money is CLEARLY the best baromoter of a drummer's skill.

I guarantee that Ringo Starr has triple the funds that Travis Barker does, but Ringo Starr was about as basic a drummer as you could find.

That right there is the main problem with pop culture music today, why most of it sucks. It's not about trying to make money or pulling pussy doing it, it's about passion for the instrument. Do you think great enduring bands like Rush, Genesis or The Beatles were worried about making money??

Sure Travis Barker has chops, but there are THOUSANDS of drummers out there that make him look like a beginner.

Well stated. He's made more money with that bullshit clothing line of his than he has because of his drumming.

Sure Travis Barker has chops, but there are THOUSANDS of drummers out there that make him look like a beginner.
Do you think they started playing full time with no intention of making money? They may love doing what they do, but I find it hard to believe they would continue playing if they had no money and couldn't pay their bills. As far as Travis Barker, I like the dude simply because he seems like he would be a fun guy to party with. Some of his stuff I like and some I dislike. The guy has skills but isn't close to being the top drummer out there. One thing he does do that I give him props for is venturing out and getting involved in different genre's, there aren't too many out there that will take that risk.

He probably is cool as shit. I'm not doggin on him as a person because from what I saw on his TV show a while back he seems like he'd be awesome to chill with, but shit like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnzXTGn3i58) just makes me feel like he's not that great of a drummer especially when there are guys like Guido Wyss (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJKj5QnT4AU) out there who are WAY, WAY better.

This will help everyone out, check it.
It is time we acknowledged a basic feature of human discourse: when considering the truth of a proposition, one is either engaged in an honest appraisal of the evidence and logical arguments, or one is not. Religion is the one area of our lives where people imagine that some other standard of intellectual integrity applies.

Another guy that's better than Travis Barker that no one has really mentioned yet is Vinny Paul.
