All Two Grateful Dead Drummers, Ranked From Worst To Best

2. Mickey Hart No offense or anything.

1. Bill Kreutzmann We’re all in agreement here.

  1. No explanation necessary.

    • I saw Airto sit in on the traps a few times in the early 80s–does that count? Billy Cobham too, at the Greek, but I think that was just timbales type drumming
