Who is your favorite drummer?

I think that the best fusion/jazz-rock drummer is Dave Weckl

My number one is definitely Danny Carrey from Tool. I love Dave Weckl from Chic Corea Electric Band and Brad Wilk from Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave as well. My favourite jazz drummer is Buddy Rich.

I just realised that I forgot one on the most musical and progressive drummers ever - Amon Tobin 8)

Definitely Lars Ulrich from Metallica! His playing is quite simple but with very great feel! Cheers

I've been on a huge Budgie kick lately;
he's not technically proficient, but he does some really unique stuff, stylistically.

His work with Siouxsie and the Banshees or the Creatures is really tasty.

budgie on Myspace

He's inspired me to really work on my hihat foot~



I like a lot of the other technical monsters out there like Lang, Peart, Bozzio, Weckl, Minneman, etc.
Bonzo and Bruford certainly are an influence.
Benny Greb is a recent discovery for me too; he's pretty awesome
