The 32 Best Drummers In Rock?

There've been hundreds of drummer jokes over the years, but no one jokes when it comes to putting together a list of the best who've ever played.

British music mag New Music Express, otherwise known as NME is the latest publication to take a crack at it with its 32 of the Best Drummers to Grace Rock 'n' Roll list. A couple of the choices are a bit odd (Both Meg and Jack White? Buddy Rich is Rock?), but they do hit all the usual suspects. Here's the entire list, which is in no order.
