I already did like 50 times. The poll seems to getting votes from little kids who don't know who Queen is. That is why the drummers of The Killers and the Smashing Pumpkins are doing better than Mister Roger Taylor.

Love Rogers drumming - very distinctive style. As for him being the the greatest drummer of all time, my vote would probably go to Keith Moon or maybe Buddy Rich.

Smashing Pumpkins? Really?

You make it sound like they are a new band or that their fans are little kids. I don't know any little kids who even know about Billy Corgan's band. Saw them in Mexico City and Monterrey last year and most of the audience were 25-35 years old. 

I like them a lot. Many of their songs are timeless: Tonight Tonight, Muzzle, Cherub Rock, 1979, Ava Adore, etc. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness has to be one of the best albums in the 90's. A double album and it was only their third album. I wished Queen had done that with ANATO and ADATR.

Back on topic, Chamberlin is good. Lots of snare drum rolls and a solid beat, but Roger is certainly a better drummer and more distinguishable as well.

you seriously think Roger is the best drummer ever? delusional and blinkered!!!!
Queen were great because of the "sum of the parts"...Freddie was not the greatest piano player, Brian certainly not the greatest guitarist, nor John the greatest bass player....and Roger was nowhere near the greatest drummer....
have you neve rheard of Keith Moon, Ian Paice, John Bonham, Cozy Powell? - all greater than Roger

Roger it's hardly the greatest drummer of all times, but it's certainly the greatest influence in my drumming. The man is a master for me. I'll vote daily.

In the other hand, Neil Peart below this who--knows-his-name from The Killers might be a joke. And not a funny one.

lol, i agree.  Don't forget neil pert was and is way better than roger.  He's a very good drummer, though not one of the best.  Queen were one of the all time best for their songwriting ability.  Not many bands could match them.

Glad to see I am not the only "delusional and blinkered" one here who thinks Roger is amazing.  Seems he is number two in this poll now with a score of 7.62

For those of you who were so inclined to let me know how bad you think he is...uhmm..where are Neil Peart (who overplays like a madman IMHO), Keith Moon, Ian Paice, etc.  Well....Neil and Keith are in 9th and 10th place respectively.  Ian Paice...no idea.

Just thought I'd update you with the good news. :-P

you're serious aren't you? i can tell. but still delusional and blinkered.

The reason Roger has climbed to no2, is because idiots make comments like "i'll vote for Roger daily"...how fucking absurd....what ever happened to "one man - one vote" ?

these polls mean f**k-all because of idiots who flood the boards...this poll and others like it have as much cred as GW Bush's "winning election" campaign...

i know this is all subjective...but how can vote count form people who "only ever listen/buy music by one band"?
but here' my subjective opinion

Brian is probably (at best)f5th or 6th best guitarist..behind.....page, blackmore, gilmour, rhoads, scholtz, townend, lifeson
Deacy - way behind, entwhistle, hughes, glover and waters
freddie keyboard skills? - maybe after elton, rick wright, jon lord
and poor old roger?....way way behind....paice, moon, cozy powell, bonham, peart,

as for queen? my favourite - yes. - best ? - NO!!!
second to beatles or maybe third to floyd

I happen to think Brian May is the best guitar player and not because I love Queen.  I love Brian's style of guitar playing, making every little solo fit perfectly within the song.  He might not play fast and/or difficult stuff but it is certainly difficult to match his sound.

You don't decide who is best and where certain musician's belong.  It's all a matter of opinion.  Neil Peart is the best in my opinion while Cozy Powell is the best in someone else's opinion.
