    That isn't even close. No drummer's been better than Moon, IMO.

    At one point I heard thta they tried to have a series of famous drummers reproduce his work, but none were able to. When they had the computer do it, it said that it wasn't humanly possible to do what Moon did. ;)

    I think it's a mistake to judge a drummer based on a solo. I've played with drummers that can rip off a solo that'll knock the socks off your ass but can't keep time to save their friggin ass. What a drummer can do while also holding down the rhythm is far more telling. I vote Moon hands down, even though I like Zep a lot more than The Who. It was like he was playing a solo all the while he was keeping time for Entwistle and Townsend. Friggin amazing IMO.

    I think Bonham was better but Keith was more interesting.

    both cases of wasted potential

    They both kept the beat so thats not really worth comparing. Post some examples of Moon and we'll check em out side by side.
