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.

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.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

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 immediate financial security; and with it, 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 few significant ways. They had their own combination George Martin/Geoff Emerick in one body, 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.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney
