  1. I’m extremely proud to see Nate Smith on the ballot. His versatility, innovativeness, passion and creativity makes him a true gift to music and to all who witness him. It is an honor to vote for him.

    The Jazz category seems a little weak. Would have preferred to see drummers like Jeff Ballard (Brad Mehldau Trio), Justin Faulkner (Kurt Rosenwinkel “Star of Jupiter”), Clarence Penn, Brian Blade…

    Glenn Kotche does more with less. He deserves the win easily, IMO. Too many drummers today don’t understand restraint.

  14. Liberty Devitto has been a monster drummer for Billy Joel on every hit. He also had a hand in arranging more of those songs then you realize. He played for Mitch Ryder before Billy, and his band Topper became the Billy Joel sound. Since Billy, Liberty has been extremely busy in the studio, as well as being in ultra high command by hi profile stars. And a little thing you might not know. Liberty travels across the country to set up workshops and provide instruments for groups of kids that would never get a chance to perform on their own. Liberty is the total package. He truely deserves the hall of fame on his own merit…

    Where is Joe Tomino? Alex Van Halen? Jimmy The Rev Sullivan? Carter Beauford? Dave Lombardo? Any one of these bests most of this so called, “Best Drummers” list. Travis Barker? Shannon Leto? Are you shitting me? They should not let 12 year old girls vote on this list.
