I can't tell one drummer from another. But I know he used to get high rankings in polls by Modern Drummer magazine. Other drummers loved his work. RIP.

Great gig in the sky! Keith Moon can take a bit of a break now that Ginger is there...

Possibly the greatest rock drummer of all time - he was way ahead of the curve during his Cream tenure.
