Modern Drummermagazine, “I guess I’m not really aModern Drummerdrummer.” But the unshowy contribution he made to the band he played in is worth more than a pile of dusty VHS drum-instruction tapes (not that we couldn’t watchthat YouTube videowhere Jeff Porcaro explains how he came up with the “Rosanna” groove until our eyeballs turn to ash).
One important caveat: we used rock and pop as our rubric, so a drummer’s work needed to directly impact that world (as we define it, of course) to make the list. This meant leaving out dozens of essential jazz artists such as Max Roach and Roy Haynes, whose innovations inspired many of the players you’ll read about below. That list is its own monument we hope to build someday soon. For now, let the arguments start. If you want to throw a cymbal at us, please do so in the comments section.Read more: Rolling Stone »

Amazing drummer I can’t believe its been 40 years - his playing lives on ! and copied by so many! RachelSteeleCLE Yes, Bonzo was the greatest and in the greatest band. 🥁🤘 I enjoy plenty of drummers, but I enjoy Bonzo a bit more. (*) 1) Ringo Starr 2) Keith Moon jimidouglas GOAT 4 ever, genius gone far too soon respectBlackDog
Wow that long ago! I'm getting old! Love Bonzo but Peart is better....not even close lobaoeletrico Keith Moon mandou um abraço RIP to the greatest drummer who ever lived🥁🥁🥁 Badass drummer 🥁 lobaoeletrico O maior baterista de todos os tempos. lobaoeletrico Já se vão 40 anos então sem o grande John Bonham. O tempo passa muito depressa. 40yearsWithoutJohnBonham 🥁
O nome dle só m lembra da historia q tem por aí,do Axl q 'dizia ser possuído pelo espirito do John Bonham' Greatest Drummer (and Musician) of AllTime! JohnBonham 🥁 He was the greatest of all time! Always will be!!!!!! The hammer behind the hammer. Rolling Stone’s own story on Keith Moon right after he died proclaimed “Keith Moon was not merely the greatest drummer in rock and roll history, he was the only drummer in rock and roll history”!
RIP John. iammarlhy Nobody here listens to jazz, I guess. Think ginger baker was better but each to their own-still a top of the range ‘stick meister ‘ 👈 Avoided the 27 Club but goddammit Has it been 40 years already. 'Bonzo' was one of the greatest drummers in the history of music. He along w/ John Paul Jones provided the solid backbeat to allow Jimmy Page to soar on guitar. A sad anniversary.
Very influential. I thought Rolling Stone didn't like Zeppelin when they were together. MudsharkIncident Yet in your “top 500” Zeppelin didn’t appear until 58. RachelSteeleCLE Bonham was great. Attacked the drums. Hit even harder than Ginger Baker. But, not the greatest drummer of all time. He wasn't the greatest drummer of his era.
RachelSteeleCLE Bonham was a great drummer, but he wasn’t the greatest of all time. That honor would go to Neil Peart. Rolling Stone just will not mention rushtheband in any form. He was good but Neil Peart is the greatest. RachelSteeleCLE It was a very sad day I remember it well RIP Sir John Wow! I remember that day like it was yesterday..I was 11.heard the news after school and listened to WPLJ all evening.
Silly thing to say. Not going to even read the article for your justifications. Our Percussionist...On Drums John Bonham...Moby Dicccckkkkkkk😎😎😎🥁🥁🥁🤙🏻🤙🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤜🏻💥🤛🏻 RIPJOHNBONHAM I remember this day well. I was a sophomore in high school and I had just started going to concerts. LZ had announced a tour and they were coming to my town! I had requested a day off from work (my first job, Burger King!) so I could wait in line to get tickets. Sad day.
His death also ended one of the greatest bands of all-time. Professor disagrees Oh, Rolling Stone. Always looking to back us into corners of heated discussions & arguments to sell subscriptions, print and digital. Bonzo was great. Who was best? Who knows? Who cares? Once you reach that echelon to be considered great it only comes down to preference.
Hell... In the 1975 Playboy Magazine Top Musician's Poll for Best Rock Drummer, he was edged out by Karen Carpenter of The Carpenters. (Look it up...) A stylistic master! He was not the best drummer of all time... I love watching his son honor him ❤️❤️❤️, this is awesome Ug I remember that day. We were planning to camp out for tickets for the upcoming tour. A homemade banner painted on a bedsheet went up on campus that read 'The Song Remains the Same' 😥
HowardStern sternshow cwotd Keith Moon, Neal Peart, Dale Crover, Mike Bordin, Mickey Dee. I can name a lot more drummers better than John Bonham. Well he wasn't. He was great, love Zep, but Mr. Peart, is, was, and always will be the 🐐. ...rushtheband ... Sorry he was not. SSJWHB I remember that morning.
Don’t need to read it, I can hear it now! Greatest drummer of all time?... hes not even the best white drummer of all time Not even top 5 After buddy rich
