I like Lombardo, I don't love Lombardo. He deserves praise, but a lot of casual metal fans consider him the greatest drummer of all time. He is good, he pioneered a few things, but kids calling him the best metal drummer of all time is quite a stretch. Pete Sandoval played in the same period, but much better if you ask me, not many people bring him up when you mention pioneering metal drummers.
