Whoever did the drumming on Bob Seger's Live Album from the early 70's
Jeff Porcaro - Toto ( His work with Bozz Skaggs was great and of course his shuffle on Rosanna)
Kenny Arnoff - JCM (Real groove and power on the early JCM songs)
Herman Rarebell - Scorpions (1st band I saw live)
Nigel Olsson- Elton John (His 24" 2002 Ride with about 20 sizzlers in it is a trademark sound)
Scott Rockenfield- Queensr˙che
I like the list and explanations....good stuff. If you like Peart, Portnoy and Rockenfeld, I might suggest going back and listening to Court of The Crimson King....it's like the prog drumming manifesto...the whole album. Michael Giles. Pretty landmark stuff

Favorite drummer........hmmm.... nearly impossible........ which genre ......... what decade......alive or dead...... ? Mr. Rich, of course, the most prolific drummer ever - greatest influence on all drummers who came after. Neil Peart is certainly among the most influential but then there's Vinnie Colaiuta is one of the best known great drummers - among drummers but relatively unknown among general music aficionados. So ..... then there's Carter Beauford. So, I guess, the guy who is always number one on most lists of drummers is again, as always, Mr. Buddy Rich. After all, he set the standard.

Jim Austin (ex-Into Eternity) - Guy was a beast in his days.
Tomi Salonen of One Morning Left - he sings and drums at the same time, so kudos to him.
Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater) - his technicality is serious.
The guy from Limp Bizkit. Didn't listen to them for long, but I thought he was good.

Gene Krupa-Benny Goodman and solo. I prefer him to Buddy Rich, whilst Buddy was a better player, to me its just speed and technique which while i utter idolize him for what he can do, I never found Buddy as musical as Krupa and thus why I fell for Krupa much harder.

I like this thread because it is a listing of favorite drummers, not "best". This order is in the same vane, most to least favorite. The order does not represent who I think is best.

Neil Peart
Buddy Rich
Ian Pace
Bernard Purdie
John Bonham
Tim Davis (Steve Miller)
Steve Smith
Aynsley Dunbar
Steve Gadd
Billy Cobham

Normally I just say John Bonham and job done but I have more and newer players I have been listening to outside the genius of people like Bonham and Steve Gadd.

Favourite drummers at the current time. I am getting bored of listing the same old same old we all know so hopefully this may inspire people to search out new drummers. We all know Dennis Chambers is amazing for example. I am endorsing the bands they play with as I do not like Slipknot or Gorija or Korn for that matter but I like their playing.

Travis Orbin
Ray Luzier
Jay Weinberg
Thomas Pridgen
Mario Duplantier

Carter Beauford- I've heard people say he "overplays"; FALSE. He is a just groove master with the deepest pocket in the universe. His hits are absolutely perfect every single time, elevating each and every song to a whole new level, and his hi-hat/cymbal work is second to none.

Bud Gaugh- This guy is the king of reggae/rock drumming.

My current list is as follows:

Manu Katché. Great groove-drummer with immense creativity and technical skills.

Ash Soan. Perhaps the groove-drummer with the best Hihat-control. His shuffle is just awesome. And he's a very kind person.

Steve Jordan. Oh... yet another groove-drummer. But WHAT a groove-drummer he is... fantastic.

Steve Gadd. Great technical skills and he adds the right amount of spice to a song. And ... he's a freakin' great groove-drummer.

Adam Deitch. Has a great ... what? ... yeah ... GROOVE. Super-talented guy with a very positive personality. He loves playing drums. You can really see that.

Uhhh... I forgot the most important one. Joe Morello. I believe I don't need to explain why. ;)

Maybe a little odd, but Eric Kretz from Stone Temple Pilots. When I think of a great drum tone the Core album jumps in my mind.

Not the greatest technical drummer in the world but he's great at what he brings to the table.
