Led Zeppelin's John Bonham Tops 100 Greatest Drummers Of All Time List

(hennemusic) John Bonham of Led Zeppelin has topped Rolling Stone magazine's newly-published list of the "100 Greatest Drummers Of All Time." The late sticksman landed at No. 1 ahead of major players like Keith Moon of The Who, Cream's Ginger Baker and Neil Peart of Rush, among others.

Rolling Stone explained that their sure-to-be-hotly-debated list of timekeepers was based on "one important caveat: we used rock and pop as our rubric, so a drummer's work needed to directly impact that world (as we define it, of course) to make the list."

"We valued nuance and musicality over chops and flash," they added, "celebrating players who knew the value of aiding a great song more than hogging up a show with a silly solo." Read more here.
