Default Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

First off... in my case "Inspired" doesn't mean I actually play like these cats... I just love the way they groove.

Elvin Jones
David Tough
Buddy Rich
Shelley Mann
Don Brewer
Bonham
Gavin Harrison
The tall skinny drummer on Beatloaf.
Garibaldi
Vinnie Parello (Spiral Starecase) A One-Hit Wonder band but what a great kick drum on that cut - I Love You More Today Than Yesterday.
Stubblefield
Chad Smith
Thomas Pridgen
Weckle
Bissonet
Tony Williams
Lenny White
Simon Phillips
Ron Otis
Steve Smith
Purdie
Jimmy Lovelace
Jimmy Fix
Densmore
Some of Baker's later stuff
Ringo
Watts (kinda, sorta)

There's a whole bunch more...
Here's someone I just ran across who I'm diggin'
