    Tough one. The two least 'technical' are my two faves because of the entire intro (drums included, but not just because of the drums).

    For me, it's Maybe I'm a Leo ~vs~ Never Before.

    Will have to ponder this a bit.

    You are a Classic Rock FREAK when you ask for best Drum openers!

    I don't even know how to respond.

    Doesn't get better than Fireball for me.

    Ian Paice's drumming on Fireball is pretty powerful throughout, to the extent he drives a band of drivers.

    I voted for Fireball.

    In writing this reply, I wrote almost an essay extolling the virtues of Ian Paice, but thought better of it and deleted them. Suffice to say, he remains somewhat underrated imo.
