Gibson.com has put together a list of what its editors believe are the Top 10 Drummers of All-Time — and it includes one big surprise.

Numbers one through nine are all heavy hitters — from the late John Bonham at the top to Stewart Copeland of The Police at number-nine. But sitting at number-10 is the steady keeper of the beat, Ringo Starr, who’s a staunch opponent of the drum solo.

Some pretty big names got left off the list, including Buddy Rich, Hal Blaine and Charlie Watts.

1.John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
2.Neil Peart (Rush)
3.Keith Moon (The Who)
4.Dave Grohl (Nirvana & Foo Fighters)
5.Lars Ulrich (Metallica)
6.Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)
7.Ginger Baker (Cream)
8.Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Devo & Nine Inch Nails)
9.Stewart Copeland (The Police)
10.Ringo Starr (The Beatles)
