Last week, we kicked off our monthly tournament in search of the Greatest Drummer of All Time. Almost immediately the race was on with thousands supporting Neil Peart, dozens wondering why Ringo Starr was included, and too many not realizing these choices were all reader-submitted. Needless to say, it was a carnival of oddities at hand.

Now that we’re into the second round of four, things are going to get dicey. Neil Peart vs. Keith Moon? Good luck there. Dave Grohl against Mike Portnoy? The talents of Buddy Rich paired alongside John Bonham? Copeland and Carey?! Just thinking about this next round is making our heads spin.

So, take the next minute, hour, day, or week to think it over. Remember, we have two more rounds after this, and they’ll only get harder. (Could you imagine if it comes down to Peart vs. Bonham? Christ.) Soon enough, we’ll finally know which guy with the sticks reigns supreme. As we previously mentioned, we encourage a discussion in the comments below, but please be civil.

Don’t forget: The voting booth is on the last page.
