    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,
