Reni (Alan Wren) from The Stone Roses could at the very least hang with the other drummers mentioned in this thread.

The three are very successful drummers who play drastically different styles and techniques. It is ignorant to diminish the talent of drummers like Barker, Roddy, and Jordison because of the media attention they get; everyone here has something they can learn from each of them--even if you don't like the style of music they play.
