Buddy Rich is GREAT!
Of the “new” drummers I like Tim Yeung best.
No one has the speed and tightness he has! Incredible speed, all he needs now is a Great band to play in!
Check “Jam Sessions Tim Yeung” on this site!

As the WORST drummer (in a famous band) I´d have to say Lars Ulrich
The sloppiest drummer ever, what happened after the 80´s? Drugs?
He manages to ruin such classics as “One” and “Master of Puppets” totally nowadays

Sisters of Mercys “Dr.Avalanche” has more soul than Ulrich 😉

@TachyonDrums don’t forget Mike Mangini, Dennis Chambers, Thomas Lang, Tony Royster Jnr., Neil Peart, Steve Gadd, Mike Portnoy, Simon Phillips….all drummers who have a rightful place in drumming history ahead of Travis Barker

anybody who claims that they have found the “best drummer ever”…if its not Buddy Rich, then you are wrong. I don’t believe he will ever be outdone

Best drummer EVER!

He never lost it, did he? It amazes me every time I see him play, whether it be an aged recording or something nearer the end of his life. Definitely one of the world’s best drummers to date, and one of the coolest styles of soloing. 🙂

4:07 the trompets sound like ” No Comment, No Comment…”

Absolutely mind-blowing. As a drummer, you have to accept that you will never be as good as Buddy Rich. Ever.

@mcrfreako1011 thats crazy!

I have to agree with you all, this is wonderful. There is a huge set of drumming cliches. You know the kind of thing that will come next. He is the cliche breaker! You keep tuning in to this solo but you keep misreading what will happen next.

@airsoftrules987 i couldnt believe it myself!!

What a talent. Just amazing, but I think those drums are going to be the death of him. Looks like he comes close to catching a pain in his chest. Amazing drumming.


junsuxxcutie January 10, 2012 at 11:29 pm

wtf sir. wtf.
:bows down:
the skill..the skillll


thebombdigity124 January 11, 2012 at 5:56 pm

why is it that the top comments are ALWAYS hating on travis barker. fuck off douche bag. they are both good drummers. yes technicaly buddy rich is better. more dynamics. but travis is in a TOTALY different style of music so stop comparing them they are both very good,
