Phil Collins, by far. Listen to Genesis from 72-76, and Brand X.

Phil Collins isnt so much a drummer,more a jazz/rock percussionist and so therefore differs slightly from Roger.Thats why Phil plays all those peculiar time signatures like 9/8 and 16/9 for example....and he's left handed too.

In terms of technical ability, there are guys out there with all the chops eg Neil Peart, but, when it comes to arranging drums appropriately to each indiviual song, Roger is perhaps unequalled; maintains a distinictive style while giving each song its appropriate measure. Is is the same guy playing AOBTD and The Prophets Song - try askin Phil C, Neil P to do that!

Subdivisions and Firth Of Fifth have better drum arrangements than any Queen song.

As much I love Queen for being a band that arranges great songs overall, and as much as Roger has his distinctive sound, there is no way he is a better player/arranger than Phil or Peart.

hmmm...Id' say Roger and it's not because I absolutely adore him, it's just that I really love his drumming style and I think he's an awesome drum player. Whole lotta talent! =) but Phil Collins is excellent as well.

Keith Moon could play the drums blindfolded.
If you look at his playing style he never ever looked at his drums while he was playing.
Amazing drummer.

I think the Gorilla in the Cadbury's advert beats them all!

On a serious note hmm... it would be tough as they are both v diff, I'd say they were about the same.


Me and JJ have decided. Roger Taylor's nipples are hot! http://bebo.com/NeVeRmInD1991 <---- Moi

Phil Collins going away. Phil brought a lot of complex rythems into his work and live he was on another planet.
