Rush in 1978 on the Hemispheres tour

Led Zeppelin in 1975 on Physical Graffiti tour

Van Halen in 1978 first tour 

Ozzy Osbourne in 1981 last tour with Randy Rhoads

AC/DC in 1979  last tour with Bon Scott

KISS in 1977 on Love Gun tour

 

 

Good choices! Saw Rush on the Moving Pictures tour, played a lot of hemispheres. was great! Had zep tickets for the last tour but Bonham drank himself to death b4 our show. Sabbath with Dio would have been awesome also.

The Rolling Stone magazine is also the biggest reason it took 39 years to get Rush into the RRHOF. They punish bands for not giving interviews.

If i had a time machine i'd go see.....

 

Rush in 1978 on the Hemispheres tour

 

I'd literally kill to see any of their shows from the 70's. The first one I saw was in 1983 during the Signals tour.

These "best of drummers" list, what, were they flash frozen in the late '70s/early '80s?!  Bonham and Baker are the only ones being discussed that are worth a shit.

 

HELLO?!  Dave Lombardo?!

 

HELLO?!  Commando Pete Sandoval?!

 

HELLO?!  Tomas Haake?!

 

HELLO?!  George Kollias?!

 

And where the fuck is Terry Bozzio in the reckoning?!  Chad Wackerman?!

 

If you could play for Frank Zappa you're 10000x better than that hack from Rush.  RUSH SUCKS.  Rush aren't even good if you're restricting shit to Canada.  Fucking Triumph are better than Rush.

 

Rush were about as interesting as George Thorogood or Men at Work.

Listen to "Fool in the Rain". Case made for Bonham. Keith Moon has never been rated very high but he was crucial to the success of The Who.

Peart was very good, although sometimes a bit "busy" for my tastes.

 

The greatest drummer in the world?  Ringo by a country mile.

Why is this funny?

I have never heard anyone mention Ringo when it comes to Tier 1 drummers. 

 

Then your experiences are limited.

 

Almost all musicians, sound engineers, and music producers consider Ringo to be an outstanding drummer/percussionist, with many of them also stating that they think he's the best.

 

As an example, he was the first ever Rock and Roll drummer inducted into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame, which had previosuly been entirely composed of philharmonic and jazz drummers.

The Beatles weren't a heavy metal band. I suspect he got mentioned because of their popularity. Notice he didn't make it out of the first round. Name an intricate song he played on. Why isn't Gene Krupa on the list? It's all subjective.

When it comes to creating great music, it's not about intricacy.  It's all about the sound and feel.  Who cares if someone can bang the hell out of a drum kit if it sounds like crap?  Ringo has plenty of chops that he uses when it makes sense.  But he treats the drums like an instrument, and his drum parts have melody.  He's on another level.

 

Just listen:
