"When I saw the October 2009 issue of UK's Rhythm Magazine with the '50 Greatest Drummers of All Time' reader's poll on the cover, I must admit I was curious to open it up and see if I had made the Top 50...
Well, after quickly scanning through the 40's, 30's and 20's and not seeing my name, I was beginning to sadden that perhaps I didn't make the cut.... : (
But then I read on and was surprised to eventually find myself all the way at the top of the list at #5!
Thank you to all the drummers that voted me into such a prestigious poll....
I am truly flattered and honored to be held in such high regard with some of my greatest drumming heroes!
Thanks for all the love, : )
The Top 5 were:
1. John Bonham
2. Buddy Rich
3. Keith Moon
4. Neil Peart
5. Mike Portnoy
