    Default 10 Most overrated Drummers of all time

    I don't know who Reuben Levy is but I guess everyone is entitled to their opinions. This list will definitely stir up some feelings...LOL...I never rag on other drummers because it is not a competition in my opinion but I do agree with most of this list less the harsh words and Steve Gadd. Steve Gadd overrated ??Really?? Different strokes I guess!
    Check it out.

    Actually I would only debate him on 1. Steve Gadd. The rest I pretty much agree with him on.

    Wow. Just wow. Somehow, I don't think Max, Charlie, Hal or Ginger (or any of them for that matter) give a rip who thinks they're over-rated. They're too busy enjoying the fruits of their labor.
    I can see where Max, Charlie & Ginger could be considered "lucky". We're it not for their respective bands and the success of the band as a whole, we may never have heard of them. I think Hal has established himself on his own.

    These lists are always interesting. I never heard of this journalist either but he was pretty harsh but comical. I want to know his 10 most underated drummers.

    Yep...Lars, Tommy Lee and Kieth Moon. Those guys alway get dogged on.

    I too would like to see his "under-rated" drummer list. OR....his over-rated guitar players list.

    All drummers are kinda over rated. After all, all we do is beat on things for the amusement of others.

    LOL

    all the best...

    Moon, and for that matter, the entire membership of The Who, drive me nuts with their work:

    Moments of remarkable brilliance -- but for the most part nothing special.
    Moon was most definitely unique in his approach -- and -- when he was not completely chemically wasted, could actually lay down decent tracks in the studio.
    As you watch video of him and The Who, you will rarely see him use a high hat.

    Well....unless Drummer is actually one of the 10 on the list. I suppose it's safe to assume he's not Keith Moon. Hmmmm....

    I agree, I would remove Gadd from list, Move Moon up to #1 and I would probably ad Carmine Appice to the list.
