Keith Moon as an innovator probably thebest rock drummer of all time.
and the other guys that play hard... Springsteen once said that a good drummer should sound like the boom at the edge of the universe....
Ringo Starr (although the Beatles were greater as the sum of their parts then as individuals)
The guy for John Mellencamp is awesome (don't know his name) but have always noticed his play...
Max Weinberg
Ginger Baker (Cream)
Mick Fleetwood

My all time favorite drummer is "THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY"!!!........Noone could play with the passion he displayed.He did however lose a bit of his edge when he kicked his amphetamine addiction in my opinion.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

The drummer from Tool, can't remember his name
