Rock Candy

Music Radar held a poll asking readers who the best rock drummer in the world was, and the top ten yielded some interesting results.

Coming in at number one was Def Leppard’s Rick Allen, followed by Volbeat’s Jon Larsen at number two and 5 Seconds of Summer’s Ashton Irwin at number three.

Rounding out the top ten was Alter Bridge’s Scott Phillips (4), Simon Phillips (5), Queen’s Roger Taylor (6), Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee (7), blink-182’s Travis Barker (8), Dave Grohl (9) and AC/DC’s Phil Rudd (10.)
