John & Ginger no doubt. Bonzo was a monster, on time all manner of styles. Wowsers. His drum solo were too long. But I'll forgive him that, he had great musicianship.
Ginger, well what can ye sa. Pioneer of double bass, one of the first to get the crossover from jazz to rock drumming done right. Ginger made Mitch Mitchell seem 2nd rate which is an accomplishment. From Ginger " gonzo & moonie can't swing for shit"... He's right.... Bonzo did not need to either way.
Now I got to drop Moon from the side. He always had an asterisk next to his name. Unlike the others. "changes tempo, not metronomic" you can hear it for yourselves too. He's good but that little fault slight timing errors. He could pull along a song, but never capable of sitting deep in the pocket. Yeah super powerful and colourful on your way out, sir. We've got to find someone better.
So who do you bring in Neal Peart no he didn't appeal to your blue collar rocker. Too intricate. Got to be Dave Grohl. I'll take Dave everyday before Keith hell also be more sober, not that that's always a great thing. All rounder technician, power, musical, intricate, emotional. Whole package.
So we agree on 2 for rock drummers. That ain't bad,
Best drummer I've ever seen. Full stop.
