[Top 5 Tuesday] The Top 5 Classic Rock Drummers

5 – ALEX VAN HALEN

One of the best double-bass drummers in classic rock. AVH also had a great unique sound, bringing lots of extra tom-toms into the layout of his kit.

4 – NEIL PEART

Admittedly I’m not the biggest Rush fan in the world, but I can definitely appreciate the technical work each member does. The giant drumset, the odd time signatures, the samples and trigger pads, it all adds up to make him an icon.

3 – STEWART COPELAND

Copeland doesn’t usually rank this high on other drummer lists, but I have a soft spot for him. I’ve always loved the style of the Police, and Copeland always managed to be amazingly proficient without being over-the-top. He didn’t kill you with power or volume, but he played incredibly tight and incredibly smooth.

2 – KEITH MOON

The flipside of Copeland, Moon WOULD kill you with power and volume (almost literally, when he deafened Pete Townshend with a bass drum full of explosives). Moon played like he lived: wild, crazy and unhinged.

1 – JOHN BONHAM

There is everyone else, then there is Bonzo. The greatest ever. Shut up if you disagree.
