John "Henikens" Bonham is maybe someone.........
Without a doubt-
...it's Tony Williams.
Virgil Donnati - absolute freak.......
Inventive, technically excellent but tasteful with it.
He never over-crowded Sting or Andy but was still a huge part of their sound.
My favourite by far.
....oh, and Tito Puente
Ditto. I also think the drummer from the Mars Volta is amazing.
my favourites are Carter Beauford, Mike Portnoy, and Morgan Rose. I am really digging Chester Thompson at the moment.
As for who is actually the be in the world? probably some guy who plays for fun in his garage or room in some anonymous city in a random country
Hey, you read my mind. Also, Yanni's tour drummer (don't laugh) is insanely good, and Jake Dunlap, the drummer in my old band. Only 21, better than anyone I've ever played with, and there's soooo much still to come from him.
(Did I get her name right?)
I like a lot of the names that have come up/will come up (how long until we see Neil Peart?) but I've always thought Tool's drummer is underrated.
The "Best drummer" is hard to answer, however, I think one of the most powerful drummers was Ian Pace of Deep Purple fame. I saw them 3 or 4 times, and he always seemed on the verge of destroying his drumset every time I saw him.
If you can forget about 'Tarzan' and his current stream of MOR schlock, I vote for Phil Collins, especially in his Genesis days. Also, Bill Bruford is no slouch either.
I second the votes for Bruford and Collins. They rule!!!
Absolutely. Anybody see Paul Simon's Concert in The Park? Steve was wailin' on those pots and pans like a madman, he said it was his favourite gig ever and it's not hard to see why when you watch it.
One word - Aja...
I don't know how you define "best" but if I could play with any drummer I choose (living or dead), I would choose John Bonham. The new DVD is a reminder of just how great he was.
