Mike Piazza (baseball guy) Randy Johnson (another baseball player) Dominic Rousell (old goalie for the flyers) Jerry Lewis (the comedian)

those are all I can think of off the top of my head though....

Johnny Carson played, he used to get "pointers" from Buddy Rich all the time LOL. Dana Carvey plays as well (party on Garth!). Jerry Lewis was already mentioned. Hmmmmm. I know others but I can't think of them at the moment either. They'll come to me eventually.

I didn't know Conan played drums. I knew he played guitar. That's awesome.

Conan Obrien and James Hetfield. James and Lars have a drum off in one of their DVD's and James totally wastes Lars in my opinion. it was pretty funny.
