I debated about putting this under the OPEN MIC, but hey...

Who is your favourite drummer. This person may not necessarily be the best, but they could be. Here is mine...

Toss up between Carl Palmer (ELP and Asia) and John Bonham (Led Zeppelin). Stan Lynch (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) is in consideration, too.

Hard to argue against Moonie,one of my favourites too.

but

No better drummer than Bonzo for Zep

Paice for Purple

etc.

Drums seem more "band 'centeric" than other members individually,at least to me ,

I would definitely agree with this statement.

Roger Taylor-Queen
Don Henley-The Eagaes
J. de Wolff-One of my best friends

Roger and Don may not be the best drummers but they write great songs and sing very well in addition to playing drums.

Steve Broadhurst. Yeah, you never heard of him. Winnipeg guy, would be 50ish now, I haven't seen him in years. Awesome, and good friends with steamcokev my bro.

It's always a 3 way toss up for me. I love Mitch Mitchell's jazz sensibilities. Moon's sheer busy-ness and energy. Bonham's HUGENESS.

Man, I wish we had downvotes on this forum. Just for that one guy.
