Heifetz is amazing I'm listening to California right now. Heifetz and Winant are even more amazing live the interplay between them is unreal. Just noticed Fisher in the reply above Fisher and Heifetz definetly get my vote they are both incredible drummers with a style that crosses multiple genres that are not well known.

Matt Tong from the band Bloc Party. He's pretty creative with the beats he uses.

Josh Epperd from "Coheed and Cambria" is extremely under-rated. his playing is perfect in every song. Never overplaying and never underplaying (listen to "in keeping secrets of silent earth: 3" or "the crowing". I'm really anticipating there new CD. Also check out his Hip-Hop project "Weerd Science".

And "The Black Dahlia Murder"s new drummer Zach Gibson. Some amazing poly-rhythms and chops.

I love Scott Phillips, the ex drummer of creed (I guess he plays in alter bridge now) he plays the beat but he also adds lots of little fills and cymbals crashes. he reminds me alot of my style of playing...he's one of those drummers that I look up to him alot.

Damon Che (ex-Don Caballero)

absolutely incredible musician. the five Don Cab records are astounding, and you only need to go here to listen to this MP3 (the beautiful 'Oh, Suzanna' in which Che plays all instruments) to see what he's capable of.

Kai Hahto from wintersun is definitly underated(atleast in the US he is.) he is in the band Wintersun. he doenst do like very complicated parts, though he does have some very challenging parts in certain songs) but the parts he has fit the music perfectly. he is very fast specialyl at double kick and he is very percise. also part of the reason SOME of his parts are not extrmely compmicated is because he does such lenghty songs that in order to play the parts flawlessly he has to make sure he can paly his parts perfectly. he a very musical drummer and he always thinks of the song.

he is also in a few otheprojects such as "Max and the Rox" and with his own group called "Rotten Sound". he also plays with a finish jazz singer,Bianca Morales.

Steve Williams is one of the the most underrated drummers out there: Most of you have probably never heard of him -- pick up a Shirley Horn album with Steve Williams on it to hear some of the swingingest, most tasteful jazz drumming ever.

I could not agree more with you, BigBang. I don't think Jackson is underated, it's just that kids today don't know about him, and Bernard Purdie, and Jerome "Bigfoot" Brailey", Sly Dunbar, Carlton "Santa" Davis, and I could go on naming even more names but kids wouldn't know them. And I'm 17, so I what what my peers know about Funk, R&B, Reggea, Ska and Jazz, hardly anything.

More unknown than anything else, Lucius Borich from Australian band Cog. He is a real good player and makes some really nice rhythms. If you like bands like Tool and APC you should check them out - www.cog.com.au - you can download thier 1st two EP's and it plays some of the tracks from thier latest album on the front page.

Absolutely, the groove master, James Gadson is under rated.
We can listen to his groove from Motown such as Jackson5 to Donald Fagen's
Night Fly album.
I think he shoud be more famous.

Very similar to Cream, Zeppelin, Mountain, and other great rock bands of the 60's, and 70's. I can highly recomend them to anyone who enjoys good ol rock bands. CHECK'EM OUT!!!!!!!!!
You hit the nail right on the head. Matt Abts is KILLER. He can jump from one style to another with amazing ease, and he's so relaxed when he's playing. Gov't Mule is one of the great rock bands of the past 10 years and they get very little press. Awesome stuff.

I think there are three underrated drummers I would like to call to attention.

John Densmore of the Doors. A very solid and innovative drummer, whose stylistic interpretations of the blues and jazz combined to create a unique approach to what was some pretty avant-garde music at the time.

Michael Giles of King Crimson. The original King Crimson drummer, an exceptionally talented and again innovative jazz drummer crossing over to rock. His work on '21st Century Schizoid Man' to me is a piece of genius. And bloody hard too...

Andy Ward of Camel. One of the forefront progressive rock drummers of the 1970's; but unfortunately has since faded into obscurity after leaving Camel after suffering from bipolar disorder. Britain's Neil Peart (IMO). Listen to any work on Camel's first four albums and I think you will understand. His phrasing is exquisite and he plays with such finesse yet power at the same time. Superb snare, ride and hi-hat work especially. Top bloke.

I can think of two guys:

Eric Carr (RIP) of KISS who in my opinion was the best drummer that they ever worked with. He also played guitar, bass, keys and sang and you can hear a unique musicality in his playing. When watching old concert footage from the 80's he put such a different light on the classic songs and made them a lot heavier.

Also, not a well known cat but Ruben "Cougar" Estrada from the Estrade Brothers Latin Jazz band. They are local in Southern California and this guy is awesome. His handling and application of Latin rhythms to the kit along with his soloing ability are incredible. Also, he has a great sound

Zak Starkey played and toured a bit with The Who, - prior to playing with Oasis.

There's a DVD "The Who Live at The Albert Hall with Special Guests" (2001) ... His performance throughout the set is absolutely fantastic. Right up there with the legendary Keith Moon ....

The set itself is brilliant, guests include Paul Weller, Kelly Jones, Eddie Vedder, Brian Adams, Nigel Kennedy, .... and Noel Gallagher .... I guess that may have been where he met Zak .... ?

Highly recommend the DVD ... not so sure about the Oasis album though ...

Zak also played the fantastic gig The Who did at the Isle of Wight Festival last year

Zak is brilliant and certainly deserves to be listed on this site ! -

That drummer is Jack Irons. He used to play with Red Hot Chilli Peppers,too, I think. I like his playing on that album myself. My favorite under-rated drummer is probably Barrett Martin, of the Screaming Trees. I like his drumming.

I agree that he was incredible....but as long as I've been playing, I've heard of Jeff Porcaro as a venerable legend ranked amongst the best of all drummers. So...I'm not sure if I was just listening to the right people, or he actually got quite a decent amount of recognition.

Either way...He's one of the greats and deserved to be mentioned any time anyone speaks of great drummers past and present.

Nick Mason! Get Live at Pompeii and see what I mean... and if you can't appreciate his playing, there is little help left for you.

So very melodic

Funny, I would have said it would be hard for Jeff to get any more recognition. The man is an absolute legend, and basically every single drummer I've ever spoken to knows that. And don't forget the massive exposure he got through TOTO; they're still huge in France...lol. I think the reason you don't see much discussion about him on this site is that no one would have anything to argue about! He always grooved, he always played with taste, he always played for the song...you just couldn't fault the guy. The only likely discussion we could have about him would be 'What are your favourite Jeff moments?'.
