    I wonder if somebody with lots of time will tally up the numbers. From the looks of it Dave Grohl may be the next "besides"

    Although the first instrument I played in Rock and Roll was drums, I didn't get into drummers until a couple years afterwards. B.J. Wilson of Procol Harum was one of my first fav's. Ginger and Mitch followed closely. Zappa's drummers, e.g., Billy Mundi, Artie Tripp, Aynsley Dunbar and on and on... The Tubes's Prairie Prince. And then I regressed... Charlie Watts had some great fills and Ringo had incredible timing. I think my two favorite drummers these days are Terry Bozzio and Ringo Starr. For good or ill.

    Tons of amazing drummers over the years in many genres but I'll say that Jimmy Chamberlin is one of my all time favorites.
    His drumming on Geek U.S.A. is just insanely good. Perfect mix of technical chops, groove, great snare sound and it still serves the song.

    So many good ones

    Bill Ward - old school with swing

    Les Binks- early speed metal

    Ian Paice- still amazing in his 70’s

    Ringo - as a kid I thought he was average at best and landed one of best gigs ever. Recently went back and really listened. Distinctive style and always plays just what’s right. I was way wrong. Fantastic drummer and musician. Freak of nature too! The guys like 80 and seems to have found the fountain of youth. Making albums, touring extensively and just so full of life.

    Billy Cobham-saw him once early 80s, pretty well after that trippy Jazz/Rock fusion thing had run its popular course. Great, masterful show.

    I've always been a fan of Doktor Avalanche (being held in this photo by Sisters of Mercy guitarist Wayne Hussey)

    ...But seriously, I've always really liked the style of Nigel Preston who is probably best known for playing on the first few albums by The Cult. Instantly recognisable, his drumming is what drew me in when I first heard Sex Gang Children too.
