Then its all funk drummers... I like drums because of the groove.
Big fills, long rolls are cool... but the beauty of simplicity exceeds everything else for me. As my skill has improved I've found its much easier to bang out a big fill or go a little wild with expression but the song usually sounds worse with 'more', its gotta 'feel' or forget it.

There are so many Bitchen drummers out there we could type all day really.

Love the classics, like Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. One of my influences is tre cool from green day. And of course, that travis barker fellow is pretty good as well. haha. But my all time favorite, is probably Dan Trapp from Senses Fail. He's nothing to special, but him and i have similar styles.
if your unfamiliar with him, check this video out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtH5KHt7IBA

Influenced by a lot of drummers.

Favorite and most admired has to be Rick Allen (Def Leppard).

Really, how anyone not admire a guy that can play professionally for over 20 years with only one arm?
