The late John Bonham of Led Zepp 31 May 1948 – 25 September 1980
Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Nirvana has said:
"John Bonham played the drums like someone who didn't know what was going to happen next- like he was teetering on the edge of a cliff. No one has come close to that since, and I don't think anybody ever will. I think he will forever be the greatest drummer of all time".
Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers:
"To me, hands down, John Bonham was the best rock drummer ever. The style and the sound was so identifiable to one person. Any drum set that he would play, it sounded like him".
neal pert from rush has to be one of the best ever. he's freaking amazing.
I'm going to say Bonham as well. The man played the drums as an instrument, not as something to beat on. Led Zeppelin stopped existing after his death.
His music is fascinating to listen to. Even in a group with some of the most revolutionary musicians, he stood out.
COSY POWELL ...the best ever ,he was tragiucally killed on the M4 motorway 11 years ago
Andy Parker, UFO. I don't really know, but I worked with him for 6 years before he rejoined the group, great bloke and I'm pleased to know him and be one of his mates.
Neil Peart from Rush is probably one of the best drummers of all-time. I also think Danny Carey of Tool is one of the best drummers I've listened to.

Drummers never get any credit. What song has the best drumming you have heard in a music track?For me Tool - Lateralus, Led Zeppelin - Moby Dick, and Tool - Ticks and Leeches would be my top three.
