    some of my favorites:
    Bill Stevenson - (Descendents/ALL) Oh my god! I think this guy is amazing. To me, he is the perfect punk rock drummer. :) (Listen to the Descendents' "She Loves Me." He's got this bouncy kinda feel that adds a really cool feel to the music. And his fills... Mmmmm! It's hard to resist the call of learning to play the drums when I hear him, but then I remember that he's not human. :p
    Billy Cobham - I just looooove his style, his groove, his sound, everything!
    George Hurley - (Minutemen/fIREHOSE) Not a punk rock drummer at all, just amazing. There were some Minutemen tunes that were okay but his drumming made them into incredible little masterpieces. (Listen to the Minutemen's "This Ain't No Picnic" or "I Felt Like a Gringo," for example. Or any song! :))
    John Bonham - don't think I need to explain this one...
    Michael Bland - (Prince) Freakin great! Listen to Prince's "Shhh." Ohhh yeah :)

    Oh, I could go on and on! There are a ton of drummers that just kill me. I've definitely got some kind of weird thing for drummers. I tend to find them pretty sexy, too. Mmmm. :D

    Stewart Copeland: again, unique player with tons of energy
    Will Kennedy: with Yellowjackets, developed a genre of his own
    Neil Peart: sounds great on the new Rush CD

    this kid i used to jam with, greg settino. the kid and i clicked so well. best drummer i've ever played with.
  9. In no real order, off the top of my head, etc

    Stewart Copeland - do I really need to say anything about him?
    Jean-Paul Gaster (Clutch) - thundering sound with jazzy inflections, with better grooves than the rest of the band. One of the best metal drummers IMHO.
    John-Robert Conners (Cave In) - Great energy (near to Copeland) and one of the biggest factors in the bands' sound.
    Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Dark Angel, much more) - God of the double-bass drum technique?

    Don't dig him on 'The End of All Things...'? Wow, I was hell impressed by some of the skinswork I was hearing on it the other day. It's those crazy friggin' time sigs! 17/8 and 11/8 on one track (I think; I'm pretty crap with counting out). The guy's a cluey drummer, if nothing else.

    Would I banished to some bad place if I let it be known that I don't care for Neil Peart's playing?
    Let it breathe a little, dewd!
