    I agree with Peart ranked first. I’d put him a step higher than the drummers you’d expect to be up there, Moon, Bonham, Baker, etc. I’d also agree with the comments in the original article, Jaki Liebezeit should’ve been included

    This is an incredibly short sighted and (need I point this out? really?) racist list from start to finish. Never mind, of course, that the very idea of a “best of all time” in anything at all is simply childish and silly. Lists like this are not helpful to anyone.
