Keith Moon (The Who, if you don't know who he is why are you even here?)
Zach Hill (Hella, solo, absolute MONSTER)

Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy)
Abe Cunningham (Deftones)
Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth)
Winterhalter (Amesoeurs, Peste Noire)
Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Mark Lanegan, dude is good enough that he turned down offers from Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies, one of the most underrated drummers out there. He got into Queens of the Stone Age by going to one practice with no audition, and played half of one song before Josh Homme walked out of the room; he returned several minutes later saying "Alright, I just fired the drummer, tour starts tomorrow.")

That doesn't change the fact that there is no excuse to be a drummer and not know who Keith Moon is, genius. That's like playing guitar and not knowing who Hendrix is. Christ, if there's one guarantee on UG, it's that no matter what you say, someone's going to argue with it as if you said something completely different.

Anyway, back on topic, I consider Moon the most important/recognizable drummer in rock, but as far as my FAVORITE, especially among the living, I'm definitely giving it to this man -

I'm sorry, what?

I've never heard of Keith Moon, or I have but didn't associate the name with the drummer. There is no excuse, what crap. That's like saying "You don't know who Terry Bozzio and Gavin Harrison are? You can't be a real drummer because you've never heard of them"

OT: I've been getting more into Thomas Pridgen lately, I like his whole controlled chaos thing he has going on (It's a term he used to describe playing with Mars Volta)

Don't listen to rock, don't play rock drums, never heard of keith moon. Does that somehow make my drumming invalid?

I do play some rock and punk here and there, but 95% of my playing is ska, reggae, and jazz.

Crikey I could go on and on

*controversy alert*
For the record, I think Keith Moon is an over rated buffoon, some of his playing is out of time and sloppy which is totally unacceptable IMO.
Don't even get me started on Ringo

Jason Costa from All That Remains. Notice how he holds the drumsticks.



Mike Portnoy



AND Cobus Potgieter, the youtube guy.

I'm sure Jason Costa is a good drummer, but after I saw some of the videos of Six live it kind of put me off him. Some major tempo issues at times, but everyone has off days.

Meh, every clip I've seen of him has left me stone cold.

Jean-Paul Gaster of clutch. He is the reason I want to learn the drums. And he has ruined me for listening to other bands. The drums just sound boring in other bands

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csWhXFHwEVo


This man speaks the truth. Gaster is an incredible drummer. I saw Clutch in Boston a few years ago and in the middle of their encore, they let him go off on an unbelievable solo, which consisted of him doing all kinds of really cool nuanced stuff and not just taking a monster dump on the drums.

Brad Davis



And Mike Fuentes



I tried setting my snare up the way Fuentes does (angled forward). I don't understand the practicality of it at all.

I used to angle it slightly forward. It's just a way of making it easier to get rim shots.
#188
^^ It's done a lot in jazz, I read somewhere that it takes it roots in snare drum marching in the army. They have their drums at an angle because it hangs off their bodies (Generally to the left I think), couple that with their traditional grip and it makes sense.

i used to tilt mine to the side when i played traditional grip. I read somewhere that the tilted snare is to facilitate better rim shots when playing traditional grip.

I have scrolled through this entire thread to make sure I am justified in saying this:
Everyone is forgetting Mike Mangini! Worlds Fastest Drummer for a while, Now in with Dream Theater, and trust me, his drum solo when DT are playing live is absolutely mind blowing.

But to add to my list in no particular order:
Neil Peart
The Rev (R.I.P)
Matt Halpern
Mike Portnoy
Scott Rockenfield (Queensryche)
Danny Krash. You won't have heard of him, he's from a band called Knock Out Kaine. I know them personally though!
Zac Farro (Paramore) isn't bad
Steven Adler
DAVE GROHL!
