100-greatest-drum-beats-850-100

MusicRadar has made a lsiting of the 100 greatest drum beats of all time and even if I did not have the time to go through all 10 pages of them I am dissapointed to see that only one decent entry placed itself amon the top 20. On place 16 one will find New Order’s Blue Monday, shame on you. Perhaps one should do one of its own showing the true power of electronic drum beats :-)

With a little help from drumming legends Chad Smith, Peter Erskine, Joey Jordison and Thomas Lang, our friends at Rhythm magazine have nodded approvingly along to every drum beat in existence to bring us the top 100.

From 1930’s Gene Krupa to Pharrell Williams via John Bonham’s old-school skin bashing to an Oberheim DMX drum machine – no stone, however heavy, has been left unturned…”

    And no Kraftwerk….. this is a rock drum list only. Kraftwerks groove impact on contemporary music cannot be overestimated!
