top 5 drum fills of all time

Just my opinion, but I feel these are the 5 best drum fills of all time, please feel free to voice your opinion!

3:15-3:19
not really a cool fill, but the effects make it on the list.

2:30-2:32
plenty of good drum licks from a great drummer, the whole song is full of great licks but this triplet is one of my favorites.

2:22-2:25
Brian May's crying guitar gives me shivers down my spine, then Roger Taylor's drum fill just breaks my back

2:33-2:45
I am guilty of doing air drums every time I hear this on the radio

8:00-the end
The song that got me into zeppelin, with such a power house ending, big power chords, big drum fills, and edges out other all the great bohnom chops in my book!

I can't argue with that list, although I'm not too into Phil Collins.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

Ringo's solo in "The End" is short enough to be called a fill.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

Jim Fox is a monster on this whole song. Stand out bits at 1:13-1:20 and 1:55-2:03.


Mitch on Manic Depression is just off the charts.

Ginger Baker is machine like (not in a bad way, in an awesome way). Killer fills at 1:15 and 1:35-2:00.


There is too much in this one song to single out any certain fill. Absolute genius from Moon the Loon. Master.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

All great stuff but I have to give a special thanks to mdubya for that Who vid.
It's been too long since I broke out the Live at Leeds. Gonna dig up the vinyl tomorrow.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

My two favorite drum fills are actually on the white album, I'd post them but the youtube quality doesn't really let it be heard. The first is Paul's drumming on back in the ussr, really energetic all the way through but during the last verse when the lead guitar is doing a bend on the B string at fret 20, while the high e is being played at the 17th fret, at around 2:16 seconds before the chorus starts there's this awesome fill that booms through my system. The other is the track "I'm so tired" It's not really a fill, but the way the drums are played during thr chorus, it's a slow but loud thump, like a drawl almost keeping everything going.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

As a drummer, I like:
Ledzep - Rock nīRoll
Sepultura - Territory
Dave Brubeck - Take five
Guns - You could be mine
U2 - Sunday bloody sunday

None by technique or speed only, but for beeing remarkable, eficient and good taste.

Re: top 5 drum fills of all time

I always thought Niel's fill @ 6:42 is one of the best.


Check out Bonzo @ ~ 8:10 through the end of the song.
