7. John Bonham

One of the best drummers and bands on the planet. There really is no need to say much about him. He is one of the best drummers ever. He kind of invented the drum solo, in my opinion. (In rock music that is.)

6. Dave Grohl

With all the insane drummers I was watching at the time, Nirvana came along. This drumming was simple. This drumming was easy. But when I listened closely and my brother and I played the songs ourselves, I started to understand the concept of fucking awesome rock drumming that made the song a masterpiece. Dave Grohl turned into my new favorite drummer.

5. Buddy Rich

Not much to say here. He played stuff that was literally impossible to play. He was one of the first drummers to invent the one-handed roll. And he was a legendary band leader. My biggest influence for speed and snare work.
