Mike Portnoy. I'm also very saddened that Bonham didn't make it on to the first page.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Vinnie Colaiuta yet since he's arguably the best studio/session drummer around right now.
Probably not his best work, but I really like that song.
Mages will be Mages
Chad Kent of Atomship.
Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
John Bonham, Keith Moon, Neil Peart. They're the best at the kind of drumming they do (or did, for two of them), and they've all been extremely influential to future drummers (Neil Peart is also a great jazz/big band drummer, in addition to being the god of prog rock drumming).
For metal drummers, I'd say Mike Portnoy, Nicko McBrain and Dave Lombardo.
Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.
David Morrison of For Today has got to be one of my favorites. ;D
Are you kidding me? This guy creates the best and most complicated grooves around. Jeesh must not be a drummer....Originally Posted by Faciano
I fully agree that Peart does groove. However, I don't think he creates the best and most complicated grooves. Jeesh, you must not have heard of Gavin HarrisonOriginally Posted by Remo
Buddy rich is hands down, the most talented drummer of all time
watch all of it
John Dolmayan of SOAD created a drumming style that i have yet to hear replicated well.
Neil pert is meh, he uses to much equipment imo, Buddy has him hands down on technical skill, and imo he is making love to those drums

Adam Gray - Texas in July

Neil Peart or Dominic Howard
Hands down Jon Karel. Most of you have probably not heard of him. He's an incredibly innovative and experimental drummer. He also drums with a smile on his face.
