Why is there a drum topic on UltimateGUITAR?

I mean, I'm a drummer, but still.


OT: I can name a million better drummers, and I could name a million guitarist better than Steve Vai, in my opinion.

EDIT: Steward Copeland is boss.

The username. Who wants to be known as the poop kid? That's like the kid that poops in the urinal at school and everybody finds out about it.

Depends what you count as being good when you put all that virtuso stuff into play, Vai bores me to death, technically good doesnt necessarily means the best, nothing wrong if people like that though, I prefer more creative musicians personally, Danny Carey is deffo creative haha

Jon Karel. He's at least as good (I haven't heart much of Danny Carrey but my drummer friend raves about him).

There's a drum forum here, y'know, though obviously this guy didn't post in it.

Thomas Pridgen, John Theodore, and Deantoni Parks.

And for Jon, just listen to De-Loused. His drumming is abstract and awesome.

If we don't have to stay modern, I'm going to throw George Hurley from the Minutemen in there. If we don't have to stick to rock, both Billy Cobham and Dave Weckl.

Oh, and Zach Hill.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I wanted to keep this about rock n roll. I figured the rock forum was the best place to do that.

Neil Peart (Rush) and Mike Portney (ex. Dream Theater) are both way better and are among the top drummers in the world, undeniably better than Danny Carey imo.
#19
Too many to name...Most are in metal bands..

Van Williams, Gavin Harrison, Mike Portnoy, Neil Peart, Tim Yeung, Dave Lombardo, Stian Kristoffersen

Mr carey is a beast though...
The most talented man on earth...

Woah really? Danny Carey is good but...

Brann Dailor, Blake Richardson, Portnoy, Peart, the dude from The Red Chord (on Clients), Chris Pennie, Billy Friggin Cobham

Just listen to any of the more "extreme" bands (for a Modern Rock forum) if you wanna hear some extremely talented drummers. They may not be the best with all the jazzy technique stuff but i mean they definitely deserve a mention http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myJ5GLu1tNs&feature=related

I agree with most of this. Most metal bands possess some of the most gifted musicians out there. There are drummers in bands that no one really knows that just make love to their kit. Its amazing...

Exactly, just the sheer amount of energy it takes to do some of this stuff makes my jaw drop and brings me back to my kit

Neil Peart, Chris Pennie, Blake Richardson. I could give many more, but these should be suffice.

I believe Neil Peart is the best, most well-rounded drummer to ever live.

Chris Pennie might be the most technically skilled drummer to ever live. Hard to find his combination of technique, speed, independence, groove, and versatility. He is the closest thing you can get to a drumming robot with groove.

Richardson is extremely well-rounded.

Brian Mantia. Crazy good and plays a lot of styles.

The post rock guys / math rock, those guys count ridiculously hard signatures and play badass grooves.
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.

Danny Carey is incredible, but Brann Dailor, Jon Theodore, Thomas Pridgen, and Deantoni Parks are better, in my opinion.
EDIT: And Brain and Neil Peart. Can't believe I forgot them.
Please excuse my godawful username. I was thirteen.
