I was listning to some pink floyd the other day and i think that Nick Mason is often under rated, although he aint to original, he still plays some pretty good stuff.
Also Rick Allen from Def Leppard is totaly under rated, before he lost his arm he played some totaly amazing stuff, after he lost his arm he was even more amazing.

What drummers do you think are under rated??

Yeah i agree ringo starr is under rated, never been a big fan of his playing though, but i can see where you're coming from, a band is only as good as the sum of its parts.... so he must have done something right :)

Dennis Wilson. He has really a good sense of rhythem. And he could sing very good too.

I always thought Bun E. Carlos was under-rated.

Shelia E---underrated woman drummer, toured with the artist Prince for a number of years, was in Ringo Starr's all star band...of course sadly, women musicians are and will always be underrated to me :(


Question: Does anyone else know anyother good women drummers?

Ringo always takes a pounding from those that no nothing.

For some reason I thought Sheila E. had died. Oops.

Good ol' Ringo.

Ringo for President.

Ringo is underrated, I agree. Sure, everybody can say the Beatles are the greatest band, but not many will say Ringo's a great drummer. But he is! I especially like Helter Skelter; it's simple, but effective (i got blisters on my fingers! lol)

The others you all mentioned are underrated too, imo. Here's some more:

Pick Withers, formerly of Dire Straits
Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, "Weird Al" Yankovic's drummer (he's good, especially with Al's parodies)
Rick Allen of Def Leppard (One arm, but still one hell of a drummer)
Neil Peart of Rush (not many people mention his name out loud, but he's probably the best drummer I've heard; no offense to RT)

yeah, that's about it.

He's not even the best drummer in The Beatles.

I don't think Ringo is under-rated, just not like Keith Moon and the other flurry of mad drummers in the 60's :)

But Neil Peart is quite well known and respected.

And I agree, he's just out of this world

Dave Grohl... awesome with Nirvana.
Check out his performance on 'No One Knows' by Queens of the Stoneage.

Ringo on the other hand is an underated actor. Out of the awful performances on film by the other 3 Beatles, Ringo was the only one who showed some character charm on screen.
