    As I regard Neil Peart as the best, I like Them Bones' reply... Shannon and Sully really put on a clinic. I've seen this routine live 3 times now and the video does it no justice.. Years ago Sully use to have a small drum setup beside the drums and stand and play. That too was impressive.

    I still love Tommy Lee live, esp. in '87 on the Girls, Girls, Girls tour where the drum stage rotated. The videos on youtube weren't great as the best part was when they played Wildside..

    Remeber Alex Van Halen? He def. deserves mentioning..

    Most entertaining would go out to Rikki Rocket of Poison fame. He's decent as a solo, but awesome during the concert..

    Thumbs up

    Nicholas Barker from Cralde of filth, Dimmu Borgir, Brujeria, Lockup, Old Man's CHild etc etc...
    he does that whole "sticatto" (sp?) drum thing that sounds like a machine. i think his best was the Cruelty and Beast Album with Cradle of filth

    Inferno from Behemoth.
    His drumming on the "Demigod" album is like a machine!

    Joey Jordison of Slipknot is another excellent one. This clip is a drum solo he did Tommy Lee style with the drumset going up and such. it rocks.

    Tommy Lee is also really good too. Maybe not speedwise but certainly a great drummer.

    Since we're going there - Jan "Hellhammer" Blomberg and Kjetil "Frost" Haraldstad of Mayhem and Satyricon fame are pretty noteworthy

    and Horgh, Nick Menza, that one from Spinal Tap (lol)...god there are too many.

    Hellhammer is indeed excellent. I know he was/is? doing drums for Dimmu Borgir as well but had some injury i think. Nick Menza was another i forgot to mention. Rust In Peace is awesome.

    outside of metal there's something about certain "mexican"/"spanish" music drums that i love. the beat, the sound, evrything. the style called "Tamborasos" in banda music and more recently duranguense. i don't know any of their names and they usually have more than one drummer but the sound all together of the rhythm section is great. i loved bumping it when i had my massive speakers in my explorer, right next to some metal haha.
