    Exactly how I feel too. Judging someone's talent gets subjective right? How about how getting down to what's in their bank accounts?

    Where is Danny Seraphine and Pick Withers ?

    Is this list based on technical ability, overall playing ability, or both?

    If it's their ability to play with a band, that is entirely subjective. If it's playing ability by itself, going by Ricardos list, I could outplay 3/4 of those drummers including 1 who has threatened to sue me 3 times for making him look like a fool at a "early clinic" about 45 years ago, and he's in the Drummers Hall of Fame.

    As for Rich's list. If I had my accountant sell off every stock I own, I would probably be worth about $250K. In other words, pocket change to those guys. I would be # 4309 on the money list and probably moving down.

    The money doesn't make you good, it just means you're rich. Ringo, $300,000,000 and technically easily the worst drummer on either list.

    I'll be going to my bunker with some Johnny until it's safe to come out again.

    Any list with Keith Moon in the top 10 is laughable IMO
    Sonor Essential Force Birch

    Mapex Saturn V

    Zildjian K and Stagg DH Cymbals

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.

    Yes, really. Neither 1 would be on my top 25 list, but being that they are there, and going by just playing ability, Watts is better than Ringo.

    "Too many crappy used drum stuff to list"

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Yeah!!! I saw it too. Wasn't Pamela Anderson his co-star.

    If we took both their brains, magnified them 100K times and stuck them up a ant's a$$, they would still rattle like a BB in a box car.
