My favorite drummers aren't the guys you'd typically think of. They are:

Hal Blaine
John "JR" Robinson
Josh Freese
Lonnie Johnson
Matt Chamberlain

Guys like that - people you've heard, but may not even realize that you've heard because they do all of their work in the studio incognito.

I've been watching and listening to drummers for over 68 years.
I wish you had not said "of all time". Because that makes it impossible to answer.

May favorites are: My Dad, Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl, and whoever the next great drummer is that I learn to like.
I was in a small dive bar in California a few months ago. There was a three piece rock band who had a drummer that was just fabulous!
He is now one of my favorites too. But I'll never see him again..............

I play EXACTLY what I want to hear.

I feel unclean saying that, but it's true.

Great a good question--not the best but a favorite. I've got lots of favorites-like Bernard Purdie, Tony Williams, Steve Gadd, Jeff Porcaro, Joe Morello come off the top of my head-and oddly enough I think of Jeff Indyke (like WTH??) cause he epitomizes something-I just can't think of what it is that drives the appeal. Yep another Art-ism.
