  1. If The Rev not number 1 I’ll flip my shit! After watching: WTF WHAT THE HELL! The late Rev is so much better then the first one!  RHCP and Primus suck! Iron Maiden rules. Take out Primus and place Iron Maiden!

  2. I suppose if you were born yesterday, you could ignore drummers from before this list.

    Then again, this is a list of underrated drummers, not well known drummers. OK, then. Let’s go with that, and think of drummers before the author of this article woke up. In no order:

    Deep Purple. Ian Anderson Paice

    Santana. Michael Shrieve (admittedly not underrated).

    Bruce Springsteen. Max Weinberg

    AC/DC. Phil Rudd.

    Mötley Crüe. Tommy Lee.

    Steve Jordan, master of all trades.

    The Kinks. Mick Avory.

    Fleetwood Mack. Mick Fleetwood. word.

    Black Sabbath. Bill Ward. The prosecution rests.

  3. Topper fuckin Headon! That guy is partially (mostly) responsible for my abilities as a drummer. The human drum machine…

    Cool to see Tim Alexander on there too. What’s fucked though is that John Stanier (Helmet) wasn’t even an honorable mention.
