The best batteries in the world according to my point of view.
Joey Kramer (Aerosmith)
His first author collaboration with the band was for the song Pandora's Box, from the album Get Your Wings, 1974. He also appears in the credits of songs like Kings and Queens and The Hand That Feeds.
Ginger Baker (Cream)
Baker's playing attracted attention for his exuberance, spectacle, and pioneering use of two drums instead of just one. Firmly convinced as a jazz drummer, he was disgusted when they referred to him as a rock drummer. Although he sometimes acted in a similar way to Keith Moon of The Who, Baker also employed a more restricted style influenced by the British Jazz groups that I listen to in the late 50's and early 60's. In his early days as a drummer he played long solo drums, the best known is a 16-minute piece called "Toad" found in the double album of Cream Wheels of Fire. He is also known for using a variety of other percussion instruments and for his application of African rhythms.
Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake & Palmer)
He was often considered one of the most respected and influential Rock drummers of all time. Palmer is a veteran of a number of bands, including The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Asia. He also contributed to work with Mike Oldfield.
John Densmore (The Doors)
Desnmore dominated several rhythms which made him stand out in the battery world. This mastery of styles can be seen in songs like: "Strange Days", "People Are Strange", "Love Me Two Times", "The End", "Riders On The Storm", etc.
Larry Mullen Jr. (U2)
Like most young drummers, Larry began experimenting with a more extravagant style, gradually reducing it to a more controlled force he currently demonstrates. There is a deceptive art in simplicity (the extensive and bold expression that reaches the last place in the concert hall) and Larry and U2 are the masters.
Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor (Motörhead)
Phil Taylor, better known as "Philthy Animal" Taylor or "Philthy" Phil Taylor was the drummer of the British heavy metal band, Motörhead, between 1975-1984 and 1987-1992.
Marky Ramone (Ramones)
Marky Ramone is a drummer recognized primarily for his participation in the Ramones group. His first participation was in the Road to Ruin album that same year and he played live for the first time on June 29.
Alex Van Halen (Vah Halen)
The oldest of the Van Halen has been characterized by being a drummer who likes to give a good show, with intense drums alone, until now unique and unmatched. That is why he is considered one of the best drummers in the world.
Vinnie Paul (Panther)
Vinnie played in Panther, Three Devils, Damageplan and Rebel Meets Rebel, all with his brother Dimebag Darrell. Often, these brothers were compared to Alex and Eddie Van Halen for the good relationship between them.
Charlie Watts (The Rolling Stones)
He was hired by The Rolling Stones in 1963 to replace his former drummer Tony Chapman and since then he has remained in the group, forming with the singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards the most lasting association in the history of rock. According to statements by Jagger and Richards, he is the true leader of the band.
Peter Criss "The Cat" (Kiss)
His alter-ego or stage name is "The Cat." Soon Criss showed a powerful virtue of performing by ear and very well, a fact that attracts attention and that it was more than a justified incentive for his father to make all possible contacts to place Peter in a seminar with the greatest jazz drummer of all time: Gene Kruppa.
Bill Ward (Black Sabbath)
In addition to contributing to the drums as an original member of the group, Ward sang in two Black Sabbath songs: It's Alright (the Technical Ecstasy album) and Swinging the Chain (from the Never Say Die! Album). "Creator of Heavy Metal"

He is considered one of the best and most influential rock drummers of all time. His manner of execution towards the instrument, influenced famous drummers such as Marco Minnemann, Chad Smith, Taylor Hawkins, Alex González (Mana) among others.
Neil Peart (Rush)
Peart has received countless awards for most of the performances he has recorded and is widely respected for both his technical ability and the energy with which he performs his instrument. In terms of influence, he is one of the most important drummers in history, the forced reference of thousands of artists worldwide and has been consistently recognized by experts as one of the greatest rock drummers of all time.
Dave Lombardo (Slayer)
Lombardo is known for being an aggressive thrash metal drummer and his way of playing has been defined as "incredibly innovative", 4 which has made Drummerworld magazine call him "the godfather of the double bass drum". Throughout his career, he has had a great influence on the metal scene, having inspired many new drummers of the genre.
