best drummer of the last 25 years

JOEY Jordison, drummer of Iowa metal band Slipknot, beat Phil Collins and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl to be voted the best drummer of the last 25 years in leading British drum magazine Rhythm.

The masked band make visceral metal music but, somewhat surprisingly, have topped both the US and UK album charts.

Jordison has become famous for his custom drum kit that lifts him in the air, rotates 90 degrees and furiously spins him round

fuck off....

that brings me to the obvious question... who do you think it is?

I'm torn between Vinnie Paul and Igor Cavalera.

How can anything that is so subjective have a winner? Most popular perhaps but "The Best Drummer" is just ludicrous.

My vote goes to the bird from the white stripes. shes freakin awesome.

Funny. Tommy Lee was made famous by the same thing 25 years ago...

The best of the last 25 years... Are we talking metal? or all styles?


If all styles...

For sheer versatility and all-round awesomeness, you'd have to hand it to Vinnie Colaiuta.
For influence, definitely guys like Lars Ulrich, Mike Portnoy, Joey Joridson, Neil Peart.
In terms of technical brilliance, there are too many to mention, and none that really stand out on their own IMO, so its a dumb cataegory.

Did someone up there seriously say Lars? Hasn't drummed to his ability since 1982. So apart from the fact I fucking hate the guy, that's 28 years.

Dennis the Menace from Macabre, Flo from Cryptopsy, Derek Roddy or Dave Lombardo would get my vote.

I'm sure most other drummers will agree with me here...

There is no fucking way to sum up the best drummer of the last 25 years.

There are so many great drummers out, each influencing each of us in different ways. So to straight out say that Joey Jordison is DA BEST EVARRD RUMARRR EVARRR is fucking ludicrous and rude.

Thats pathetic.

My favorite drummer (or one of them at least) is Thomas Lang, and I feel he is one of the better drummers out there today by playing skill and technical proficiency.

What we do in our lives echoes in eternity

Derrick Roddy is good. So is that chick from The Shaggs (might've been more than 25 years?)

Lars Ulrich is not a drummer! He is an eccentric faggot fuelled by people who are lost and refuse to believe the 80's have ended. :)

True, but try to find a drummer alive today who hasnt at least heard of him, if not influenced by him.
Influence has to count for something!

Yeah, all you have to do is listen to For Whom The Bell Tolls. Pretty much set the standard for metal drumming. Even in these modern times. Fuck, I doubt anyone could even play that song on drums for real. Except for the Ulrich God himself of course!

Yeah, Lars is a fuck head and all that, and we all know what Metallica's music has been like for the last.... er.... 23 years, but those early albums, fucking hell. The drumming was unreal.
