This is highly subjective. And many might have to say they were both good timekeepers. But as far as technical aspects of drumming they are very basic.

I will take Neal Peart any day over these guys.

    I would easily put Buddy Rich as the best drummer of all time. Carl Palmer, Bill Bruford and Neil Pert get honorable mentions amongst others. The Kiss drummer comes way down the list.

    As for Ringo, a very basic drummer, but, he did produce some interesting beat variations that complimented many Beatles songs. He was to some extent, innovative. In that respect he was better than Criss. Both could keep a beat and sometimes that's all you need. Imagine Neil Pert in the Beatles, would just not work.

      Buddy was incredible. I saw one of his last concerts LIVE at the Bijou in Knoxville.TN. in Spring 86'. I remember gasping and snickering at the unbelievable speed and timing he had on his solos. Just flawless
