I never see threads like this so i thought i would make one but i think the best drummer is Josh Freese from NIN and many other bands

Dave Grohl is personally my favourite, but he's definitely not the best

Probably Buddy Rich or John Bonham

I wouldn't even rate alot of rock drummers who dont play out of 4/4.

I'd go for Mike Portnoy, Buddy Rich or some sort of jazz dude.

Portnoy probably. I personally thing Peart is overrated, in anything I've heard of his, I've been underwhelmed. One of my favorites though, is Travis Barker. Say what you will, his songs are just so damn fun to play to. (On drums, anyhow.)

yeah was weird cause she liked us both but she loved him and for some reason she let me know beforehand.

i just wanted her poon and she wanted me to have her poon.

Portnoy is definitely up there. I don't really listen to drum highlighting music though.
Oh yeah.

Mike Costa who's played in the arrogant sons of bitches and bomb the music industry! Some of the stuff he does in both bands is so skilled and is amazing to listen to.

I have a lot of respect for Brooks Whackerman of Bad Religion (and other bands). It takes excellent technique to play that fast for two hours and BR got through a lot of drummers before Brooks joined them.

I agree with the first bit. The second bit I certainly understand, though I wouldn't say he's my favourite.

Dave Weckl, Denis Chambers, Steve Gadd, Jeff Sipe, Vinnie Colaiuta, Chad Wackerman, Gary Husband, and many more, there's alot of great drummers out there.

Portnoy or Peart I'd say. Travis Barker and The Rev should be mentioned as well.

They're not my FAVORITE band, but I'd have to say Thomas Pridgen from The Mars Volta. He is amazing. I saw one of the last concerts he played at, and they were really really tight.

Personally i'd say Jimmy/The Rev - whichever you know him by.

As for who is ACTUALLY the best, I'm not in the best position to judge, what with me not knowing anything about drumming.

So i'm gonna stick with Jimmy.
