Danny carey has to be the best getting around for me. Tool is one of the only bands around using a lead drummer instead of a lead guitar.

I believe australia has some great drummers getting around like Steve Judd, lucius Borich and Nicky Bomba. Check em out.

Also check out this kid he is unbelievable

Tony Allen - Godfather of Afrobeat, pioneered playing 4 different timings with each limb

Am a fan of Danny Carey & John Stainer.
Rob Hirst is one of the most entertaining to watch - saw The Break earlier this year and he just owns the stage.

Neil peart for mine - perhaps because I have always had a huge crush for Rush.

The guy is awesome.

Virgil Donati used to be the drummer for Southern Sons (remember them:rolleyes:) but he has gone on to become one of the best drummers in the world.

This is from a concert with Steve Vai.

I don't know if he's the greatest, but another vote for Danny Carey as my favorite.

No love for our very own Rob Hirst of the Oils? Must go close to being the best drummer Australian has ever produced.

Probably the only drummer I've ever really "noticed" in concert. Incredible to see and hear in action.

Um Keith Moon. Completely made The Who. Changed their tempo and changed rock and roll. Greatest drummer ever for me.
Neil Peart should also get a mention.

Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy & John Bonham would all be tied in first place for mine. Nicko McBrain wouldn't be in the top five on talent but he's still one of my all time favourite drummers, so he goes in there as well.
