Tricky question, as I tend to like the drummers in the bands I like the sounds of, regardless of how "good" they are. The question is really whether they're musical, playing with the rest of the band. Various Hawkwind drummers (Simon King, Richard Chadwick), Ginger Baker, Ian Mosley, Ian Paice, Phil Taylor, Cozy Powell... plus a variety of awesome jazz drummers who I don't know well enough to name :).

The drummer from NoMeansNo is one of my alltime faves (as the whole band is).

Ringo's name has been mentioned a fair bit here. I just read a piece in USA Today about his latest (17th) solo album that's about to drop with his All Stars. A lot of big names were quoted about his proficiency, which has generally been under-rated. But the best quote was attributed to John Lennon who, when asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world replied:

"He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles."

Personally, I like the guy's style. The drum solo on side 2 of Abbey Road is arguably one of the most recognizable, and 'musical,' drum solos in recorded history. In fact, the only other solos that I can think of that fall into this category are Gene Krupa's Swing Swing Swing and the timbale/drum break in Edgar Winter's Frankenstein. [There are probably many others, to be sure, but those 3 stand out in my mind.]

Drums are drums right?

Pt Sharda Sahai (playing here with his son) passed away last year sadly, RIP
He was a huge inspiration to many drummers 'east' and 'west'.

To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

John Densmore (The Doors)
G. C. Coleman (aka the Amen break guy)
Ted Parsons (Swans, Prong, Godflesh)
Martin Atkins (Pigface, Ministry, etc... don't agree with some of his philosophy/actions, but a great drummer)
William Rieflin (also Pigface, Ministry, etc.)
Bryan "Brain" Mantia (Primus, Godflesh, etc.)

John Wright. Absolutlely. Best live band I've seen too.

I'll raise you Brendan Canty:

Grant Hart deserves credit for getting some swing into Husker Du, could've been a pretty relentless thud without him.

And surely Klaus Dinger needs a mention, no Motorik without him. :)

Yes, especially the part when he was just the drummer and had no solo career... :P

Perhaps his most famous gig is as Paul McCartney's drummer, though he's played with all the top names.

I don't have a link to share, but if you watch McCartney's Back in the USA concert DVD, you'll see what I'm talking about. He's a big physical presence, and just seems to be having so much fun doing what he does. It really is a pleasure to watch him play.

Went to school with him, he's also a fantastic and humble guy - just plain and genuine nice all around. His dad is a great bass player too.

Another less-known or more "session" kind of guy is Todd Sucherman who tours with Styx, I like his style too and he's a great teacher too.

Among the more known guys I like John Bonham, Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, and Bill Bruford quite a lot. Most have already been mentioned in the thread more than once already.
