After presenting several rundowns of best drummers of 2018, the folks from Rhythm Magazine have now shared the list of best new drummers this year based on 100,000 votes from their readers.
As you can see below, the winner is Danny Wagner from Greta Van Fleet. The source wrote:
“On first listen, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Greta Van Fleet’s sophomore album ‘Anthem of the Peaceful Army’ was a new Led Zeppelin cut, but it’s actually the handiwork of four young bucks from Michigan.
“Drummer Danny Wagner was still wearing nappies at the turn of the millennium, but that didn’t stop him diving into the work of John Bonham and channeling the rock legend in sound, gear choices and playing style ever since.”
