Same here.

I have a pair I use as a fail-safe.

Scream Kevin uses gloves everytime he plays. Chris Adler uses them sometimes.
I tried it once and didnt like it I couldnt feel the sticks in my hands and it was just wierd for me to play like that.

Bun E. Carlos, but calling him "famous" is a bit of a stretch.

Yes, among peeps with taste, but I wouldn't say Bun E. is a household name.

Well I gotta ask/say, are we talking full cover gloves? Sometimes I use the ones that only cover your palm (and some cover the lower half of fingers). These are usually thn bking gloves or so which are comfortable but 95% of the time, no gloves for me.
