    That makes 2 of us that can appreciate his talent.

    I have to also agree with Jasper though Neil is an awesome drummer but I am not really a huge fan of Rush either ! His drum set up is HUGE !!!

    Pagan, I dont know if you'll agree with me or not? but i dont think Lars belongs on the list?? To me, Im probably in the minority here, but he's never impressed me with his playing. Plus, Im not a real big metallica fan to begin with.Plus, he's a total douchebag.

    If I had to pick one? I'd say Steve Smith from journey. That guy is a phenomenol jazz drummer as well.

    I had to go with 'other' because my favorite drummer is Tommy Lee.

    Re: Favorite Drummer

    I had to go with other. Simon Phillips has always been my favourite since the first time I heard Shadow On The Wall.

    For those who don't know him, he was worked with a ton of bands but his largest body of work comes from Mike Oldfields recordings in the 70s and early 80s. His discography reads like a who's who of rock. My personal favourite is his work on Pictures In The Dark. Just exudes control. The man even played on Toyah records including her live release Warrior Rock which kicked ass IMHO even though it's really just pop music.

    Close seconds are also Stewart Copeland, Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds - after New Gold Dream) and Mark Brzezicki of Big Country.
    Boom! Boom!

    Re: Favorite Drummer

    Most of you have probably never heard of Yoshiki Hayashi. He was the drummer for X and later X-Japan. He is unbelievably talented. Not only did he play drums, he also played the piano on their ballads and he wrote virtually all the songs. Now, he is a huge producer, wons Exstasy Records and was asked to arrange a symphony for the Emperor of Japan. He is truly amazing.

    Pagan didn't make the list. I did! And my reason for including Lars is because there ARE Metallicrap fans here. (Few and far between as they are).

    Speaking as a drummer, Lars is average as far as talent. But down at the bottom of the trash heap as a human being.

    I know you made the list. I was actually asking pagan what he thought of lars? yes, you're right as to where he is as a person.

    I cast my vote for 'Other'. For me, Bonzo was/is/always will be to the greatest drummer ever.

    I voted for Tommy Aldridge, This guy plays in Whitesnake, Played in Ozzy's band for year and performed drumming on Project Driver and Vinnie Moore solo debut. Other drummers I like are late great Tony Thompson, Cozy Powell, Mikkey Dee's drumming in King Diamond was brilliant.

    Had the pleasure of opening for Thin Lizzy twice with Tommy on drums and being able to watch his solo from the side of the stage. The man is amazing.

    A GREAT example of his playing is the live album by Pat Travers, Go For What You Know.

    He's a freight train on that CD.

    "Other"

    My favorite drummers are:

    Danny Carey from TOOL
    Igor Cavalera from Sepultura

    But if I HAD to choose one from above it would have to be Neil
