Re: What NON-Drummers have inspired you?
I'll try to keep the list short, it would be easy to list every member of every band I like.
Mike Patton of Faith No More/Tomahawk
James Hetfield of Metallica
Dimebag Darrell of Pantera (RIP)
Martin Walkyer of Skyclad (Incredible lyrics, particularly on The Wayward Sons Of Mother Earth album)
Steve Ramsey of Skyclad
And all three Beastie Boys
They are probably the top of the pile, and I want to mention Jason Newstead (Metallica/Echobrain), Neil Fallon (Clutch), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore) and Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath).
