Lists of the best anything worry me a tad.

But as you're asking I'd consider Mike Shrieve the original Santana drummer up there somewhere. Also Rodney Holmes who played with Santana on the Supernatural album/tour.

All good suggestions - but not convinced any of them top Bonham.

Pete - only indulgent bit about Led Zepp was Jones fiddling about with his organ on stage!Smile

- after all who could forget his sterling work as a children's TV voice over artist - Rock and Roll!

Keith Moon was probably the best Keith Moon style drummer of all time.

Yes Bri I do like computer music, but to do computer music well you have to have great ability with sound and structure, just like a good photographer needs to know how to use Photoshop well. Both have talents in different could say a computer musician is a better artist as he's painting with electonic sound, but that's another thread.

Electronic musicians don't always use drum boxes. Christopher Franke of Tangerine dream had a phase of playing drums on earlier albums. Also some of the lastest intelligent drum and bass artists use live drummers. I was at Fabrik in London and heard some amazing stuff...unknown drummer bashing away with a DJ mixing sounds on top.

Sitka, it was Paul McCartney who said that. Rumour has it he used to re-record Ringo's drumming (as he's a drummer himself.)

Best drummer? Lets not forget Rick Savage of Def Leppard.... anyone who can lose and arm and STILL play drums is worth a mention.

Bonham, Paice - Alex Van Halen is pretty useful.

Another vote for Rick Savage (Def Leppard) and Jimmy Chamberlain (Smashing Pumpkins/Zwan). Both very talented.
