    And add these to the list.....

    • Pierre van der Linden
    • Simon Phillips
    • Florian Pilkington-Miksa
    • Bill Bruford
    • Neil Peart

    ....and we're starting to get somewhere.

    Surprised we haven't had Dave Lombardo yet!

    I'd also vote for George Kollias from Nile with his crazy twisty ankles.

    I think mention should also be made of Bernard Purdue for amongst other things his work with Steely Dan

    Yea, love steve Jansens work. Maybe not the most technical in the traditional sense, but just so individual & melodic. He was definitely a major part of what made Japan such a great act.

    I remember going to an On-U night where he played a set. He finished, and I turned to a mate I was with and said "Do you realise we've essentially watched a 40 minute drum solo - and enjoyed it"
