    John Bonham at #1? Yes.

    Sheila E at #6? NFW.

    Neil Peart at #18? WTF???

    No Ginger Baker?

    I'd take Mitch Mitchell over a lot of guys on this list.

    And I'm sorry, but Dave Grohl does nothing for me. I know a lot of people like him but he's just a generic stock drummer if you ask me.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    It is a weird list. I'd add Stewart Copeland to the list of people missing.

    These top musician lists are always highly subjective while lacking objective criteria. They are just an "opinion" of select music critics and writers. John Bonham at #1 isn't surprising. Alex VH should be in the top 5 IMO. Neil Peart at #18 is a head scratcher. Two drummers that should have made this list are Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Travis Barker from Blink 182. Ray Luzier (formerly from DLR Band and now in Korn) is an honorary mention.

    these lists are designed to infuriate, but seriously no Billy Cobham... check out his album 'Spectrum'

    This list is bullshit.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Any top drummer list that includes the name Tommy Lee cannot be taken seriously.
