Chad Wackermann, Terry Bozzio, Vinnie Calahuita, Gary Husband, Tony Williams, Marvin Smith, Simon Phillips.

There are many others but these bring to mind special events that simply were the best.

I'd love to see Josh Freeze, I'm sure he'd be on that list.

ZACH HILL is the BEST
"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side." . - Dr. Hunter S. Thompson ( 1937 - 2005 )

Yeahh man he's a great drummer, but he's set is TRUTH drums. The best drummer I've seen live is either Chris Hornbrook of Poison the Well or Mike Justian of Unearth. I know I'll pry get shit, but Travis Barker was awesome live too.

Ohhh, I'm totally green with envy. I'd love to see Carey live


I just saw Carey last night at the Tool concert. It was very bad ass indeed. My other favorites are Daniel Erlandson of Arch Enemy and Chris Adler of Lamb of God. Joey Jordison was also fun to see.
So many drums, So little time.
