Zeppelin is like the most greatest English hard rock band out there. (Notice that I said hard rock, so don't shoot me)

Sorry, guys, but John Bonzo is the greatest drummer of all time and you know it.

Oh, and sorry, Ringo. You know it, too.

I beg to differ.

Keith Moon is a good drummer, too. But I'm not that big of a fan of The Who.

He taught Bonzo the way of the drums. The teacher > student. ALWAYS.

I'll agree with the Keith Moon sentiment, listen to Quadrophenia, it will change your mind. He sounds like thunder! Bonham is incredible too though, Fool in the Rain is about as perfect as it gets. A massively underrated drummer is Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon probably has the best drumming for an entire album that I've ever heard.

I've heard it, I've never been a huge Rush fan, but Neil Peart is incredible.

Yes! Nick Mason is an awesome drummer! Drummers like my brother also say that, as well as Ringo-sama.

I think of drummers like a sect with some secret codes and rituals.

We might as well keep talking about Zeppelin, what's everyones favorite album? Mine is definitely Presence, or maybe III. No II. No maybe Physical Graffiti. No I'd say III. I've heard II too many times so that's out.

Led Zep are one of those bands (see also: The Clash, The Who) who I've really tried to get into but completely failed to. I've heard quite a bit, but I can't stand Plant's vocals and the 10+minute bore-fests that so many of their songs turn into. Individually they were incredible musicians, I just hate the stuff they did together. I do like a handful of their songs though – generally the mainstream ones that the proper fans probably don't like (Rock And Roll, Kashmir etc).

Nick Mason an awesome drummer? I'm afraid I can't see that either. What does he do that's so special on Dark Side OTM?

Wasn't the band's name a suggestion from Keith Moon?

Just everything he do is awesome to me. I just love his drum rolls. Yes, it sounds lame, but I can't really explain…

 

Sorry for going OT, my bad.

 I feel the same as Joe above.

I don't  really like Led Zeppelin.

Indeed. He said the band would "lead over like a zeppelin". I've heard reports that said the "Led" was meant to be "Lead", but they were worried that fans would pronounce it "Leed" instead of "Led", so they just changed it to "Led Zeppelin".

He doesn't do anything spectacular in terms of solos or anything, but he's great in the way that Ringo is great because he's just completely rock solid back there. I don't know, it's just my opinion but that's really the one album where all I listen to is the drums.

Led Zep were to the '70s what the Beatles were to the '60s: The absolute kings.  Possessors of the most unimpeachable bodies of work in their respective decades (and hey, "Led Zeppelin II" displaced "Abbey Road" from Billboard's #1 slot precisely as the 1960s gave way to the '70s), sonic perfectionists, whose immense early popularity gave them the luxury of spending as much time as they needed to get each unique gem precisely polished, masters of the album-as-album, songs and enigmatic cover art and packaging and overall mysterious aura all unified and resulting in a perfect object, bound for the top of the charts and eternal enshrinement.  And although Zep were ultimately the inferior band (vocals making the difference), they did manage to one-up the Beatles in a significant way: They had their own George Martin, who also happened to be their lead guitar player. And hey, I love Ringo as much as anyone, but come on, Bonham was untouchable.

I don't think Nick Mason's as distinctive a drummer as Ringo - in fact, between him and Roger Waters' plodding bass, I've always felt that Pink Floyd had the single most unremarkable rhythm sections of any prog-identified band. But "Dark Side…" is so beautifully recorded that I can appreciate the sheer sound of those drums making for a pleasurable listening experience.
