Who was the greatest rock drummer all time. Wait for poll
Baker was great, probably my second. Mitchell up there too.I voted for Ginger Baker. Of course I also wanted to vote for Terry Bozio and Bill Bruford (you put him in twice!), but you were smart enough to prevent me voting for three best drummers
He didn't quite make the cut, and not only on my list.Jaki Liebezeit (Can) would be my choice ... can't believe he isn't on here, unless you just haven't heard him
Ringo Starr :lol:
(Fyi, Bill Bruford is listed twice)
Of those on the poll, I'd go with Charlie Watts or Bill Bruford (but just once, not twice :tiphat
Well, it's your poll, and many of the choices are good/excellent, and as expected. Ringo Starr is the only one I outright disagree with because he was so mundane, not an extraordinary drummer at all. If you're not really looking for drummers who elevated the talent to an entirely new art, creating whole sound worlds/environments with the instrument that had never been attempted before, then I can see why you wouldn't include Liebezeit.He didn't quite make the cut, and not only on my list.
Don't start. Why single out Beatles fans with accusations of bias? By the same token, Bruford will win because of 'biased' King Crimson fans, Carl Palmer will win 'because' of ELP fans...(unless there's enough biased Beatles fans to select Starr)
Why not? Is it possible to be a more average drummer than Ringo Starr? His inclusion among the likes of Keith Moon, Neil Peart, Charlie Watts, John Bonham, etc, and to not include so many others in his place, is delusional, and disrespectful to the great drummers of rock history (good thing this isn't a Jazz list too!). Over 20+ years, Ive never encountered a fanbase of any artist (any art form) that was, on average, more misinformed or exaggerative of their band's talents/accomplishments (granted, I make it a point never to discuss music with, say, Justin Beiber fans!) ... Obviously not applicable to all Beatles fans. After all, I am a fan of some of their albums, and miscellaneous other songs, even some outside of their more creative period.Don't start.

Given we're talking about the word 'fan', if your statement makes any sense at all, it's hardly surprising, and in my experience, applies to many of those I've met who were fans of Zeppelin and Tull as much as any other rock band.Ive never encountered a fanbase of any artist (any art form) that was, on average, more misinformed or exaggerative of their band's talents/accomplishments
Nonsense. He could hardly have been more unimaginative. Come to think of it, in all of Rock history from 1963-present, it is difficult to think of a more mediocre drummer of a good (or greater) band than Ringo Starr. Any other drummer from this list could've filled in and done exactly what he did plus added much more creative touches or, even (gasp!) some extra doses of emotional conviction (!!!), to their music.Starr was the best drummer for The Beatles.
I can't help your limited experience!I don't think I've ever met any frothing at the mouth Tull fans.
At least as nonsensical as you claim my opinion to be. He was the drummer they had and there's an end to it. If you like whay the produced, you'll be happy with them. I'm not about to start claiming that Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds could have been so much better if only Gene Krupa or Buddy Rich were behind the kit. :lol:Any other drummer from this list could've filled in
