Drummer's World Cup last 16: vote now!

Michael Miley (Rival Sons) v Matt Halpern (Periphery)

Michael Miley

Rival Sons' mix of schooled chops and shamelessly flamboyant '70s rock flair has floored audiences and critics alike, proving that painstakingly honed musicality and knuckle-dragging raw power aren't mutually exclusive. Drummer Michael Miley is a skilled and charismatic sticksman, channelling John Bonham's brute force, Tommy Lee's restless energy and Jeff Porcaro's feel.

Matt Halpern

Pushing the boundaries of modern metal with his thoughtful rhythms and inspirational technique and drum philosophy is Periphery's Matt Halpern. Influenced by Bonham, Copeland and Dennis Chambers, Matt's love of both playing and teaching drums shines through in his incredible drumming.

Totally different drummers, and we're not saying one's better than the other. What we're asking is: which one is the greatest in your opinion?
