    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".

    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.

    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.

      Bonham's skill is also Page expertly producing the music,  properly miked no one ever heard cymbals like that before, go listen.  But before Bonham, Moon and the rest, was Buddy Rich and Gene Kruppa. Look up their Drum Battle on Youtube.
