Steve Gadd, Billy Ficca, Brandon Canty, Glen Kotche, Ringo.
Levon Helm first
Will Calhoun (I think Living Colour's drums are legendary)
Boris Williams, legendary to me, mostly unheard of by most.
...and They don’t fall outa every tree!
Keith Moon would be my choice!
Dennis Chambers would be my first choice. I love his command of the kit. His polyrhythms could make for a gruelling experience; I have heard from professional bassists that his love of moving the beat around can make for a difficult time finding the one. But when it clicks between Dennis and a bassist, magic happens. I know I could learn do much as a bassist just by playing with him for ten minutes!
This guy! (Ya, I'm repeating myself.).....
Oh that bass player? Chuck Rainey, my #1.
That "backwards" fill at 2:40 just kills me (see vid).
Clive Bunker from the original Jethro Tull. I loved the way he worked with Glenn Cornick when I saw them back in the day.
Bernard Purdie or Clem Burke. Or both
Not exactly in the spirit of the thread, but my old drummer spelled Bernard Pretty Purdie Two nights for Ray Charles.
He has retired from drumming and moved to Florida .
I would love to jam with Darrell Olivier one more time, but if not Bernard would be an acceptable back up.
I got to meet Buddy Rich back in the early 80s... Great drummer, but he was all about him.
One of my favorite drummers is Bun E Carlos from Cheep Trick, played on the most basic kit but boy could he play.
Excellent choice, Also the rhythm section for most of Steely Dan's greatest hits, love those guys!
