For me, this was actually the hardest list of the three so far to come up with. There are so many terrific drummers out there. Once again, this list is based on the same criteria as the two previous posts about lead singers, and lead guitarists.
For drummers, I also think there needs to be a tad of zaniness added. No doubt, Keith Moon tops all others for that factor. Certainly, Rick Allen of Def Leppard is the most remarkable and heartwarming story, given his comeback after the loss of his left arm in an auto accident.
