    Buddy is 15th on the list but certainly should be higher-possibly #1.
    Probably the greatest soloist as far as pure chops I've heard/seen.

    He and John Bonham were dead at 32. Mentally ill with huge addiction problems.

    The RS list is just that....a list. Typically there are orders which make no sense. At one point the list of vocalists had Dylan ahead of Marvin Gaye and Levi Stubbs not on the list at all. Somebody must have pointed it out to them and they put out an updated list a few years later.

    This list seemed to go for the obvious. Guys such as Steve Gadd, Porcaro, Bruford and even Stewart Copeland may be too low even though he's 10th. They went with the yahoos.

    When I saw him he had an arrow quiver full of drum sticks. As sticks broke, he'd grab another one without missing a beat. When he ran out of sticks, he started playing with his hands, then his head.

    The only way anyone even knows they exist is through their drumming skills.
    That's like saying the Beatles are only perceived as good music-makers because they were so popular. They were so popular because they were so good.
