Vampire Weekend has some really amazing and unique drumming/percussion.
His name is Chris Tomson
I don't know if he is doing it all himself, or someone's helping on percussion sometimes.
Songs with great percussion/drumming: Run, I Stand Corrected, and my favorite Diplomat's Son
Bonham and Peart are definitely my favorite old school drummers

Once you get to be considered world class at your instrument, who is better becomes more a matter of opinion, than anything really tangible. Music like all art is subjective, and I feel that judging the artist in a mathematical sense is a disrespect to the art that they create.

With that being said, Danny Carey is my favorite drummer to listen to, followed closely by Neil Pert.

Stewart Copeland (Animal Logic!), sure, and Vinnie Colaiuta (Jeff Beck Live at Ronnie Scott's), of course, but I haven't seen anyone mention Bill Bruford. All his polyrhythmic work with Yes, King Crimson, U.K., Kazumi Watanabe and his own solo projects is unequalled. For progressive rock in odd meters, Bill wrote the book. Granted, Pat Mastellotto has studied that book very closely. :)

In jazz, I don't know of any drummer who is more skilled at finding just the right feel to add propulsion and groove to any tune you can put in front of him, than Peter Erskine. Becker and Fagen of Steely Dan were able to describe Peter's work on the live version of Third World Man in two words: "Erskine perfect." Check out Peter's work with Weather Report also on the Weather Report concert featured on the DVD in WR's box set "Forecast Tomorrow." Erskine and Jaco together is an amazing duo to see perform. Pete is also in fine form on Steps Ahead's first two albums.

Here are some new drummers for you guys so you can move on from the Neil Peart Stigma:

Matt Greiner - August Burns Red

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGSPsIc4u9k

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yl-R2ef8nA&feature=related

Jerod Boyd - Miss May I (Incredible fast feet)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEMKG8xkm4A&ob=av2n

The Rev - Avenged Sevenfold (Rip... hopefully he's been mentioned already)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltCUOZc-ff8&feature=fvst

Dave Turncrantz - Russian Circles

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0HXapgFlRc

And just because... this is Luke Holland.. a 17 year old drummer with a youtube channel that would put neal peart to shame:

The new drummer from Dream Theater is pretty good. Poly-rhythms and everything in between.

Definitely a Portnoy fan.


Annnnnnnd, sacreligious may I consider it... Mike Mangini. Only because he's hilarious. And unbelievably fast.
But, I find Portnoy's style, and overall compositions of complete songs to be top-notch.

I saw one mention of Aynsley Dunbar. I didn't see any mention of the Appice brothers, nor of one of my personal favorites because of his interesting timing and economy (and ability to sing lead while playing), Levon Helm.
