I spent much of my youth hearing my dad's Buddy Rich albums. I learned to love them well before I started listening to my own music. Very pleased to see him on this list. My parents had some friends who were quite well off (relative to us) and I have fond memories of the wives sitting in their really nice chairs with their "highballs" and the men going through multiple scotches while laying on the carpet about 4' away from the guy's 4' tall Klipsch speakers. All the albums were big band music, and about half were Buddy Rich and his band.

Yes I remember Buddy Rich well. He seemed to always be on the Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, Dinah Shore shows....

Peter “James” Bond who unfortunately spontaneously combusted on stage during a jazz-blues or blues-jazz festival on the Isle of Lucy, leaving behind what has been described alternately as a "globule" or a "stain".

I remember an interview with Ivan (Pudge) Rodriguez asking him about the best catcher of all time, and he said something to the effect of "besides Johnny Bench?". My exact sentiment with this list and John Bonham.

Great names on this list for sure. This is a video I have immensely enjoyed that gives a good display of skill by one of my favorites...

I didn't go through the list but I hope both Bill Ward and Lars Ulrich are on it.
Lars will never get a nod. Not because he is a bad drummer. He's not, he's actually very good. His problem is he is in a band with prodigies and he can't compete with that. Plus its a metal band and not rock.

I don’t know his name but, the little shit behind me who drummed on his tray table for 8 continuous hours on my flight to Hawaii.
