#7. B.J. Wilson over John Bonham
John Bonham was widely admired as one of the best drummers in the business during his life, and Bonham remains respected among musicians to this day. Bonham also happened to be another member of Led Zeppelin who was not a first choice to join the group. B.J. Wilson, mostly known for his time spent drumming for Procol Harum and for AC/DC for a time, was first eyed by Jimmy Page, but Wilson declined that offer to remain with Procol Harum. Wilson remained involved in music until he suffered from a drug overdose in 1987. He passed away three years later.
