The importance of drummers is undeniable. A drummer is the heartbeat of any musical ensemble. Without their pulse to get the metaphorical blood flowing, a band would essentially be a lifeless body unable to function correctly. Rolling Stone magazine gives drummers the recognition that they so rightly deserve with their recently released list of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
Rolling Stone valued “nuance and musicality over chops and flash.” when compiling their list. They also focused on drummers whose work greatly impacted the areas (that they define as) rock and pop.
We are proud to highlight the Vic Firth Artists who were recognized by Rolling Stone as some of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
