    Pretty much in order, only the first 6 are in definite order:

    1) John Bonham

    2) Roger Taylor

    3) Dave Grohl

    4) Phil Taylor (the original Motorhead drummer, not the darts player)

    5) Bill Ward

    6) Keith Moon

    7) Stewart Copeland

    8) Ian Paice

    9) Ringo Starr

    10) Joey Kramer


    Awesome! Thanks, 'tis nice to be agreed with.

    Source(s): Why don't more people appreciate what an amazing drummer Dave Grohl was (and occasionally still is)?!

    I just noticed that out of the 17 answers from 2009, only two don't have John Bonham.

    No real order here

    - Bill Ward

    - John Bonham

    - ringo Starr

    - Jizmack da Gusha of GWAR

    - Fenriz of Darkthrone

    - Frost of emperor

    - The drum machine from Agorophobic Nosebleed (yes, I cheated)

    - Abaddon of venom (such a brutally terrible style!)

    - Dee Dee Ramone

    - Fermentor of Ghoul

    edit: Thats good. A drum machine going at 1000 BPM is certainly interesting, but not really a drummer.
