The 50 Greatest Drummers of All Time - No Nick Mason

Post by space triangle »

Some years ago the magazine 'Modern Drummer' has released a list of the 50 greatest drummers of all time. The drummers 'Hall of fame'.

And, there is no Nick Mason on the list. Is it unfair, in your opinion? Or, does Nick really not belong to the drummers elite?


A few examples from the list....

John Bonham No. 2
Keith Moon No. 8
Ringo Starr No. 9
Kerry King

These lists are political. They exist to sell product.

John Bonham the second greatest drummer of all time? Absurd.

John Marshall should be in there seeing as Dave Grohl is a front man guitarist now.

I remember reading that list a few years ago and, at the time, thought what an absolutely stupid list it was ... ](*,)
