Who are some underrated drummers in your opinion?




Ok so I know it is always widely known who the best are, but who are some you feel don't get enough credit for their amazing talent. Can be classic band or more recent. One of my picks is Michael Shrieve, former drummer for Santana. What a drum solo!

  • There are a lot of amazing street drummers whose talent gets unnoticed and eventually lost :(

  • I pick Lars Ulrich from Metallica. Not just based on drumming skill, but also on his song writing skills. Many bands don't even write hardly any of their songs, but he has wrote many of Metallica's songs.

  • I don't know his name, but the drummer from offspring is pretty good. I just like their stuff in general.

  • Joe Nunez, formerly of Soulfly. That guy really knows how to swing the sticks and kick the pedals.

    It's too bad that he doesn't want to work with the Cavaleras ever again, due to bad blood over salary disputes.

  • Most of the drummers I really like aren't underrated by the people who listen to the band.
    Mike Portnoy (of Dream Theater fame)
    Chris Adler (Lamb of God)
    The Rev (Avenged Sevenfold... R. I. P.)
    Brand Dailor (Mastodon)

    One that pretty much nobody knows is Ted Kirkpatrick, from Tourniquet, which is a Christian thrash metal band (which explains why nobody knows them). But he's fucking great.

  • I don't know because of your age whether you know the band or not but Larry Mullen Jr of U2 is by far the most accomplished musician in the band.
