Default Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

I've been *inspired* by every drummer that played on a song where I liked the drum track....

The fellas that made me want to play:
Buddy
Ringo
Danny
Ian
Neil
Phil

The fella that has informed my approach and growth, through videos of course
Dave Weckl.....what an amazing relayer of principles and ideas

Shameless, but not intended to be polarizing promotion: When it comes to rock, hard rock and prog drumming, Neil is the exalted God of the instrument. You cannot appreciate the greatness in full detail unless you really dig in and learn some of the stuff.....it makes you smile, it challenges you, it has power, finesse and style.
