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?

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.

Low blow BWood. Low blow.

Just because I don't currently play music doesn't mean I can't appreciate it or recognize unique ability. I've watched and listened to pretty much all of these guys and the only ones that stand out to me from the rest, whether it be style or actual technique is ?uestlove and maybe Stewart Copeland (who is also underrated on this list IMO).

Tell me again, how many record sales do you have?

Danny Carey is by far the baddest, but ?uestlove damn sure aint no slouch....

He aint gonna be on the 'richest' list, but Chad Sexton from 311 is fuggin awesome. I am a bit biased too, I cant stand most of what they have put out since Grassroots....

I think part of the problem may be that some people may think of ?uestlove for being on Jimmy Fallon, whereas I think of him from this song - 3 minutes 15 seconds on...
