    Here's my top 5.(No particular order)
    1.P-Nut of 311 - cause he can groove like no other.
    2.Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers - My finger still hurts from learning Flea.
    3.Dirk Lance of Incubus - This man sure knows how to hold a song together.
    4.Robert DeLeo of STP - Could write the perfect line for any song.
    5.Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band - Have you ever seen the transcription of Stay?

    John Myung. He gives a huge bottom kick with the drummer, with much lyricism though, and still while letting John Petrucci free for his deliriums. Great band, great music, great players.

    I'm not a metal fan, though. But my opinion is that DT go faaaaaaaaaaaaaar beyond metal.

    All the best,
     
  5. "Old School"

    John Paul Jones (Zep)
    John Entwistle (Who)
    Paul McCartney (Beatles)
    Roger Glover (Deep Purple)
    Adam Clayton (U2)

    "New School"

    Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam)
    Colin Greenwood (Radiohead)
    Robert Deleo (STP)
    Flea (RHCP)
    Alonza Bevan (Kula Shaker)
