    Isn't the percussion in this song insane?

    Like, that "thwack" sound in the backround.

    It is weird, but awsome... I wish I could play drums like that.

    I'm a big Bill Ward fan as well... but what about Keith Moon, and more importantly Neil Peart?
     
  8. Bill Ward is awesome, I love all the cymbols in 'Iron Man'. However, he can't compete with Keith Moon, Peart, or possibly the best rock drummer ever, Mr. Bonzo Bonham.

    I don't understand the big fuss over Keith Moon. I mean, the only reason he was any good is because of John Entwhistle. I suppose he was a "lead drummer", but without John, he would have been like a more talented Meg White.
