I do believe Bonham should be a lock for #1. It's mostly what keeps him at the top of the greatest list.

Its close, but Moon was the first drummer to push rock drumming to the next level. He was the first drummer to actually become recognized. Even Bonham himself was influenced by Moon.

What Bones is trying, and failing, to say, is that Moon was the main person who took the drums from being more of a 'background' instrument and brought them more to the forefront of the rock sound, making them more of a 'lead' instrument. He also defined the notion of the raw, spontaneous rock drummer. Even Bonzo himself was influenced by Moon.

Of course it wouldn't be inaccurate to have Bonzo at #1, but personally I think Keith deserves it.

Also, I would probably have the next three as Peart, Palmer, and Paice. Actually, since this is influence alone, I think Carmen Appice could certainly make the top 10.

I can see Earl Palmer, but you really think Ziggy is THAT influential?

Also agree on Lombardo, but what about Ian Paice and Carmine Appice?

Hal > Bonham is interesting. I'd like to hear your thoughts on that. Earl over Ginger and Ringo should be explained as well.

I wish for my own sanity that I liked The Who.

Why not? It depends on criteria for greatness. I am not a big fan of criteria used in most of instrumentalists' lists actually. I really dislike criteria like originality, creativity, innovation... I would just stick to reputation for their playing, influence and skill, using which Earl beats Carl IMO
