Hey music fans!

I was listening to a band I personally discovered for the first time at SummerFest, the Walkmen. One song of theirs that is particularly popular that I like is “The Rat“. The skill and intensity from Matt Barrick is simply incredibly to behold, and made me think of a famous quote by John Lennon, when asked if Ringo Starr was the best drummer in the world and he responded “He isn’t even the best drummer in the band!”

Obviously, this is not true for Matt Barrick, and he made me realize that sometimes the drummer can be the heart and soul of the band. Can you guys come up with a top five list of drummers who truly make their band, have the star talent or provide the creative input? I’d love to see who you guys think belongs up there.
