    Default DEF LEPPARD's RICK ALLEN Named 'Best Rock Drummer In The World'

    ... according to Music Radar readers. Wow, he's a great drummer but "best rock drummer in the world"? I'm not sure I would agree with that one.

    That's 1 of those "pat on the a$$" things. He is way better than Ringo though.

    So what's the sound of a 1 arm man clapping at this accomplishment?

    I'd also disagree but it's amazing what he's accomplished over the years and adapted

    Rick was my original influence to be a drummer. I absolutely love his drumming.

    LOL, man how any drummer can **** on Ringo is beyond me but whatever to each their own I guess. Rick Allen is a great drummer and truly to continue on after such an horrific accident is a testament to his dedication and heart but I agree with drummer, not the best ever. I am not even sure he did anything signature or creative that nobody else did before or after him which IMO is very important when talking about greatest ever. Just about any drummer can have chops. (except me)

    Yeah not really what I meant to say but I will say more people can obtain great chops with lots of practice, but you really cannot teach someone how to add the right beat or rhythm to a song and make it completely unique like Ringo did.

    Rick used traditional grip when he had his left limb... always thought that was pretty cool.. the power he had playing that way.. his snare always sounded huge on the records.

    Don't mean to run the thread off the tracks here but this is a pretty good video of Joe Elliot's vocals isolated... he ( Ken Tamplin) does a lot of these videos of many vocalists.
