    I would pick Jimmy Chamberlain.. Almost perfect hits. Nothing out of place. Siamese Dream is a great example. I know, I know, there's a ton of other killer skin-beaters out there, but just something about the way he rocked with the early Pumpkins stuff..

    Who would you pick? Not necessarily someone you would "learn" from or something along that line.. who would you like to spend a few hours jamming with?

    Steve Gadd. He's hands down one of the best drummers I've seen and heard. EX:

    In b4 Neil Peart and Danny Carey :bag:

    Keith Carlock - He's worked with Sting, Steely Dan, John Mayer and a slew of others, both in the studio and on tour. He has the distinction of being the only drummer in Steely Dan's history to record every track on an album. I particularly love his playing with Rudder.

    'Zigaboo' Modeliste, Clyde Stubblefield or Jim Keltner would all be drummers I'd kill to play with. Can only imagine the crash course I'd get.....
  7. Ginger Baker! That is all you can close the thread now.
  8. This. Ginger Baker was and IS an awesome drummer, even in more recent years.

    My other two choices would be Neil Peart (assuming I could even remember how to play the bass in his presence) or my other choice, Gary Husband, who is both an excellent jazz drummer but also a jazz pianist, and me being a jazz bassist, I'm sure I could play.

    'Lakeside park' w/ Neil Peart or...

    'Slipping away' w/ Vinnie Appice or...

    'Travelling riverside blues' w/ John Bonham

    Me. :)
    I think we would lock well together. Never played bass with a drummer that approaches the drums
    the way I do.

    Outside of that :) , I'd love to jam with - and meet - Steve Gadd.

    He is.
