best prog rock drummers?

  • best prog rock drummers?

    Billy Cobham.
    Bill Bruford.

    People who say Neil Peart without listening to Mahavishnu Orchestra or more Yes albums can jerk themselves off, Billy Cobham in all honesty wrecks Peart. Neil Peart is great and all, but there's better. Sorry guys, now is the time to start scolding me for my opinion.

    Bruford owns as well, not just with Yes, but King Crimson too! :)

  • Bill Bruford ..

    I wonder how many people will come in here and not say bruford?

    Other notable mentions include:
    Danny Carey (Tool)
    Jon Theodore (Former TMV member)
    Robert Wyatt (Though tragedy cut him short)

  • Neil Peart to me.

    Aina versión 2.112
  • Bruford is awesome.

  • Phil Collins. His work with Genesis 1971-77 was phenominal.

    Of course, one can't forget to mention:
    Neil Peart
    Bill Bruford
    Jon Theodore
    Michael Giles
    Carl Palmer
    Alan White
    Chester Thompson
    Terry Bozzio

  • I hate so say this but Collins is fantastic, but there's also John Weathers that rocks...

    dorado a través de mis ojos
    pero mis ojos que se han volteado
    sólo ven un cielo sin estrellas y una Biblia Negra...

    Pier Luigi Calderoni

    of course, most of you wouldn't know what band he's from.

    bruford, cobham, vander, peart, palmer, portnoy, collins

    there might be others but i dont know them (or their band) well.

  • Terry Bozzio is pretty amazing, as is Manu Katche.

    But my vote still goes to Bill Bruford. I've seen him several times live (with Anderson, Wakeman, Bruford & Howe, & King Crimson [x2]) but was most blown away by his talent when I saw his Earthworks band perform.

  • i don't find collins later works really interesting, but his tracks in early genesis are truly astonishing. and besides, Palmer and Bruford are both great but i prefer Palmer

    There is no way around Bill Bruford, but I agree that Phil Collins' play on the early Genesis albums is really good too. And don't forget John Weathers. And Carl Palmer. Don't know who of them to choose actually, but I still think I prefer Bruford.

    1. Nick Mason
    1. Neil Peart
    1. Bill Bruford
    2. Phil Collins

  • Fuck the others. Robert Wyatt and Chris Cutler (Soft Machine and Henry Cow) are probably the most underrated drummers in proghistory. Truly exceptional drummers!
