Steve Judd from Karnivool, and on that note, Drew Goddard (the lead guitarist) used to be a drummer and wrote the drums for the whole Themata album, and whichever way you want to perceive it, it fits.

Such as...

and Steve Judd w/ Karnivool

Jon Fishman. Not only one of the most impressive improvisational rock drummers, but the best listener. He plays so in the moment.

Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste (The Meters) and Alan Evans (Soulive & Alan Evans Trio). I love all things funky. I'm more impressed by the feel of the drummer than how complex his/her playing is.

It changes a lot, but lately I've been really into Thomas Pridgen. He has a pretty crazy style and seems like he's all over the place, but at the same time it fits perfectly.

Other favorites include: Deantoni Parks, Jon Theodore (if you can't tell I'm a huge Mars Volta fan), Chad Smith, Elvin Jones, Jeff Watts, Dave Grohl (mostly his Queens of the Stone Age stuff), and ?uestlove to name a few.

No particular order...

1. Phil Rudd - yeah I know but he is the machine that makes AC/DC go and timing is impeccable.

2. Neil Peart - no explanation

3. Cozy Powell - just because he had some serious licks and was just so damn good

Paul Motian. He is the embodiment of what so many drummers forget about - feel, texture, color, and musicality. And he's a minimalist - able to say a lot with few "words".

For a while now, Thomas Lang has been the main guy that's made me really say "Whoaaaa....this guy is incredible"....especially his foot work, which is interesting because I'm a dyed-in-the-wool single bass kinda guy.

He's like watching a CNC machine work. Precise, lightning-fast, yet also very musical and groovy. He's got it all.

I'm a Drum Channel subscriber and I just got done watching Terry Bozzio and Tony Royster Jr. jam on two SSBOZZIO kits. Holy cow!!! I guess I'm adding Mr. Royster to the list and Bozzio's always on my top 10. If you guys aren't DC subscribers, check it out! It's only $5 a month!

I enjoyed this answer. Original.

It's like asking me my favorite car... Too many to choose from for many different reasons.

I put my own style together by mixing three to my liking while I was learning.

Crashes from Phil Collins
Snare from stewart copeland
and Tom fills from Neal Peart

ie learned to have the snare early, the kick late, and the crashes at the start of the fill away from the vocals.

The moment before 1 is the most important.

Phil Collins got me into drumming through his work with Genesis and his solo and Brand X stuff, but I don't really have a favourite as such, because as long as it's a human playing, its pretty much all good.

My current favorite is Antonio Sanchez, check him out with Pat Metheny Unity Band. That guy can make all kinds of amazing sounds on his kit.

Lots of drummers have inspired me over the years. The first was Neil Peart, so he'll always hold a special place in my heart. Later on I got into Copeland and Lars, then as I started listening to jazz and fusion, I came to appreciate Dave Weckl, Billy Cobham, and Vinnie Colaiuta.

by far the best megadeth album, and yeah nick is solid title track is one my favs
what happened to em :(

George Kollias, Derek Roddy, Dave Lombardo, Vitek, Buddy Rich and yeah this list would be stupid, i like different drummers for different reasons, like Chad Smith, as i think he is just solid through and through but then like Hannes Grossman cos blows my mind it hurts listening to him play ha ha

Danny Carey is a huge inspiration for me.

Danny's playing made me go deeper into more "difficult drumming", and I wouldn't be the drummer I am today without Danny! :)

Keith Moon and Charley Watts, my two favorite drummers,.... they do stand out with the imperfect drumming , ghost notes, sometimes I feel like they are about to miss the beat but never........ which catch my attention all the time.
