    So who tops your list of best rock drummer/bass player teams?

    IMO, Neil Peart/Geddy Lee get top honors. Probably Keith Moon/John Entwistle a close second.

    And then in no particular order

    Tool (Don't know their names :redface:)
    Steve Harris/Nicko McBrain
    John Bonham/John Paul Jones

    phil lesh/bill kreutzman/mickey hart
    charlie watts/bill wyman
    mick fleetwood/john mcvie
    ginger baker/ jack bruce
    jack casidy/spencer dryden
    noel redding/mitch mitchell

    i'd put the Dead boys first and the rest close behind.

    rush does nothing for me, although my son the drummer thinks a lot of peart.

    No shit! The original Santana band was incredible, when they added Neal Schon they were perfect.

    Little Jose Chepito Areas was also an integral part of the percussion section, his timbales work was outstanding.

    Always loved this video, the whole band is so intense.......

    Wow. I've seen the Dead a couple times and while I enjoyed myself, I think you overrate them considerably... and then some. But to each his own. And good call on redding/mitchell and baker/bruce.

    Or Jimi.

    Which reminds me, I might actrually have to put Buddy Miles/Billy Cox slightly ahead of redding/mitchell. :eusa_think:
