I was going to say Ringo Star - but apparently John Lennon once said Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles :-?

I reckon Kieron pepper who plays drums & guitar for the prodigy is pretty Kool! (but thats only cos he's a mate of mine) Tico from bon jovi is also good and the guy from pink floyd.

Hated Blondie Nik. Anyone who plays with Tom Petty must be alright though, in my book.

Neil Peart of RUSH fame. Not sure how well known he is outside of North America but if you google him you'd find a staggering amount of information.

Me....mind you not playd for a few years so in that case probably Neil Peart as above, also probably the most intelligent man in music, but honourable mentions must go to, Alex Van Halen, Chad Smith(RHCP), Tico Torres, Keith Moon, Nick Mason(Pink Floyd),Christoph Schneider(Rammstein) Steve White(style council/Paul Weller),Carl Palmer(ELP), Lars Ulrich(Metallica), Phil Collins(yes that one!!!), Chester Thompson(Genesis).........ok I'll stop now, could go on for hours :D

Cozy Powell definitely, and I went to see RUSH in my youth, they were brill. My eldest daughter thinks Stuart Copeland ( I think that's his name )from The Police is brilliant because of the interweaving rythyms in his drumming........don't get me started :lol1:
Youngest daughter doing grade 4 violin today, eldest doing grade 8 cornet in 2 weeks so I reckon they know a little bit about music :lol1:

A lad I worked with at Fineline/Autac was a drummer. He left a band he was in, only for them to be snapped up by an American label. Six months later, they were on MTV and he was making stripes!

My girlfriend's ex used to play drums for Freddie Fingers (remember him?). The stuff they got up to on the road is unprintable!

Agreed with both, and don't forget Ginger Baker, saw him drumming for Hawkwind.

By the way wasn't Animal based around both John Bonham and Keith Moon.

John Bonhams .. 'Moby (oh i swore !)' has to be right up there in the top 5 drums solo's of all time !


and how did i forget the Rammstein drummer, i didnt know his name, and only recently bought the 'Mutter' album, dunno about you lot, but it's one seriously rockin album,

Kieth moon, i know of him, it wsn't far from herethat he died, but i was never that up on The Who's music, gonna try see em live now tho, their perfromance was great the otheer day,

my dad was a drummer for a number of country bands in the 70's / 80's, apparently as a bairn, when at gigs i'd wake up every time he stopped drumming, he also used to do a ten min solo while the band went of for a quick pint, then he'd have a few mins to grab one when they did a number or two with just the steel, bass and a vocal !

i would like to be able to play drums well, but cant ! i've got rythmn, just no co-ordination !! i have a fender strat like gilmores red one, but it dont sound like his.... can't quite figure that out ! both my boys also have guitars now too, hope they stick with it !

edit..... i would like it to be known that i did not swear, the title of the track is 'moby (oh i swore !)' or in case it stil thinks i'm swearing, 'moby richard'

JEM both my kids play Violin. Grades 3 & 5 :o

Did you know you can still hear an out of tune violin played badly thru 3 closed doors, 2 brick cavity walls, ear muffs and a crying dog?

Sheesh! I think it is a ploy by the schools to punish parents. Thinking of offering the school a huge 'donation' on the condition they change my kids to the triangle!! :roll:

Shane..........I know just how badly a violin can be played :o
and when theyve finished you have got to say with gritted teeth " that was lovely darling" :lol1:
Oh well one exam out of the way, one to come, at least by the time they reach grade 8 it's sounding pretty reasonable, it's just all the swearing that she does when she gets things wrong , that I cant deal with :o

Saw them live in February, absolutly amazing band have to be seen to be believed, loads of fire and pyrotechnics.

The recent album, 'Reise, Reise' is excellent too.
