The Top 10 Drummers Of All Time
January 6, 2011

Q Magazine just released their list of the top ten stickmen and women of all time. Check out their picks:

1. Keith Moon
2. Stewart Copeland
3. Neil Peart
4. Sly Dunbar
5. Joey Jordison
6. John Bonham
7. Moe Tucker
8. ?uestlove
9. Matt Helders
10. RENI

While I won't argue with most of their list, I've got to say I'm not too convinced Stewart Copeland should be at number two. My pick for number one would be the good man Bonzo. John Bonham is a true rock legend.

What do you think of this list, and who is your favourite drummer of all time?
