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???

You're the guy that doesnt play music, huh?

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...

I fugging love quest love but you're going to make me have to argue against him. He simply does not belog in the same sentence as most of these guys.

You are obviously more of a hip hop guy, that's why you dig quest over some of these hall of famers.

Not trying to make fun of you, that statement was just pretty ridiculous.

Oh and when I figure out how to balance my new job with recording times, I will make sure to send you a copy.

Just had to give you a jab in return.

But for some reason, I've always been really passionate about music, even though I can't play an instrument, lol. Hopefully that changes in the years to come.

But, regardless, I stand by my statement. I have also always prided myself on being diverse in my interests and music. Yes, I'm a hip-hop/rap guy, or at least was throughout most of my life, but my music collection has grown more and more balanced over the years due to the crap that the industry is currently pumping out. I also consider myself an artist in many respects (film, writing, illustrating, etc.), so I appreciate how others express their creativity or style in other mediums. ?uestlove always has stood out to me aside from his group performances.

I'm no expert on Tool or their music, but I know who they are and I'm familiar with them. That being said, I was never impressed with them. Not to insult your opinion or musical taste, we all have our own... I just never cared for them.
Either way, I think the list is a result of group popularity moreso than actual ranking of their abilities so your favorite is likely underrated on that list as well as many others. Again, JMO.

Well the most overrated drummer of all time is on top of the list so that should instantly tell everyone something.

For the record, Lars Ulrich is a twat.
