    As to best drummer, I'll go with Jeff Porcaro.
    Well . . . I am an overaged (by 50 years) teenager, but I have never been to an LZ concert (but would have loved to have gone to one), and don't even like Lynyrd Skynyrd (yes, blasphemy in my neck of the woods). I simply take the word of all the other rock greats in their acclamation of JB.

    Rolling Stone has their compilation here:

    Porcaro at #37.

    Bonham was excellent for sure playing with a real emphasis on his single bass drum (bottom up playing) but there are a number of people I'd put over him. Unless I missed him on there I did not see Joe Morello's name which makes it a farce- in my opinion.

    Of course every list is subjective and parts always seem to be more about popularity than talent. Carl Palmer is the best rock drummer I ever saw (and I saw Keith Moon, #2). And he's not even on the list. I think Aynsley Dunbar also deserves to be on the list and is not. Back to the original thread, I saw Yes in 1975. It was oversold due to counterfeit tickets (at least that was the rumor) and the floor was the most packed I ever experienced. They had to stop the concert several times due to people in the front getting smashed against the stage. During the encore, my feet literally were off the floor it was so crowded. I looked over at my friend and he was asleep.

    and Buddy Rich! My dad loved them both and bought me a real drum set at 10, so I could do him proud. I did not. No sense of rhythm, much less the fine motor skills necessary.
