I'd have to say Dave Grohl (I know its an obvious choice but i always thought he sounded so powerful) & John Dalmayan of System.

Travis Barker. I know a few of drummers who hate pop punk but give Blink 182 credit just because of Travis.

Travis Barker(Transplants' date='BoxCarRacer,Blink182)

Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam, ex-Soundgarden)[/quote']

Matt Cameron is also ex-Smashing Pumpkins don't you know.

My faves would be

Stephen Morris (Joy Division/New Order)

Jimmy Chamberlain (Smashing Pumpkins (Let us not speak of Zwan))

Jon Theodore (The Mars Volta)

stuart copeland - the police

stuart copeland is a cunt, he plays insane stuff but its really subtle....you dont notice how hard it is until you try learning it.

alex van halen - van halen

he has a really nice sound and style...plus he's really really good!

david sandstrom - refused

i really like his style...spetially that bit where he hits the snare then the hat(boom...pshhh) in an offbeat in the middle of new noise and at the start of ,line and sinker. those bits are ace!

I add Tr Cool for the hell of it, but also cos he's a dam good drummer, not as good as some mentioned above but definitely worth a mention :) - although the name; well it's not about his name it's about his ability so I wont go into that :p. Also Travis Barker, yes yes I've heard all the pop/shite remarks but he is a hellova good drummer all the same. And finally Keith Moon for beating his drums to death, quite literally, although I'm sure drugs of some sort were also to blame. ;)

My votes go to Travis Barker and Tres Cool from Blink-182 and Greenday respectively.

Both very technical drummers and also Tres Cool is just a complete spaz too so yeah........ROCK!

Stephen Morris (Joy Division/New Order)

Yes, Morris has the best technique (har!) I've ever witnessed, especially JD material.
