  3. My favorites.

    1.Danny Carey-Drummer of Tool and Pygmy Love Circus, the best drummer in modern rock. The most skilled, creative, and musical drummer I know.

    2.Carlton Barrett-Bob Marley's drummer, solid reggae beat keeper, very innovated with his beats, fills, and solos.

    3.Bill Bruford-Prog Rock God Drummer, Been in Yes, Genesis, and King Crimson.

    4.Flo Mounier-Extreme Metal drummer, fast as can be, off time beats, technicality master.

    5.Bob Moses-Jazz Drummer God, played with Pat Metheny and other jazz legends. my favorite in jazz.

    Nice choices of danny and carlton.

    Danny is definitely the king of prog rock drumming imo....... Everything he plays has so much taste about it. I got him to sign my lateralus cover too:D

    And Carlton ...Whoa ......Marleys band is one of my all time favourite rhythm sections. Him and Aston are gods..

    Flo Monire (I'm 98% thats spelt wrong) of Cryptopsy is pretty killer.

    Not really into prog metal type stuff though.

    Earl Harvin, without a doubt. Tastiest drummer on the planet. Who else would have the balls to turn down a lucrative gig touring with Seal to stay in Dallas doing jazz/avantguard kind ot stuff?!

    I can easily say that Danny Carey is my favorite. Tool is my favorite band as well.

    I also like John Freese. (APC). He isnt the most amazing drummer, but i like his style.
