Wow, can't believe ?uestlove is that low... Probably the most unique/talented of all those on that list. That being said, I'm not sure about everyone on that list, but Dave Grohl and Phil Collins should be considered multi-instrumentalists shouldn't they?

Well then you wouldn't have to work. You could just bang on the drum all day.

Dave Grohl didn't really make his money from drumming. Just saying.

Wait wait wait...dd you really just say that? Did you really just say that Questlove is more unique/talented than most of those drummers on that list???

What he said...

"talented" is subjective though, and depends on what you define as talented. Great solos? Awesome in the pocket? Groove player, flashy etc etc etc....

For my money (and yes I'm a lil biased) Danny Carey can't be beat. The stuff he does with time signatures is insane.
