There are many successful drummers in many different genres. On this page is a list of the very best that represent bands we have all heard of in one way or another.

What Drives Them To Succeed

Famous drummers are not like your regular everyday drummer. These drummers are driven by a quiet obsession, a love for the instrument and willingness to be patient in adversity.

They are not quitters but stick to their passion through thick and thin. They are not influenced by how much money they make like the regular drummer is.

How do I know this. Because when there is no money most will quit. But these unique individuals keep playing even if there is no money at the moment. They seem to know that persistence and perseverance are more important than always wanting to get paid.

They also have a Forest Gump attitude and simply will not stop until they are the very best at what they do without exception. If you don't know who Forest Gump is then go to your local DVD rental store and hire the movie just for the inspiration you will receive.
