|Oh, and as for a more recent drummer in modern music, my best vote would have to go to Brann Daillor of Mastodon... this guy can actually play drums!|

|@mysteriis: He's good, no doubt about it, but I would still go with Vinnie, Gadd, Weckl, and JoJo being more technically proficient and abel to play and write in multiple genres.|
Karizma w/ Vinnie playing "I'm Tweaked" which is all 4/4. He makes it sound like he's going off into different time signatures, but it's all 4/4.

Soul Drums 1968 , a good dancer ! , surely an important part of drumming is keeping the 'groove' straight , and this guy is the master !

Such as buddy rich, steve gadd, vinnie colaiuta and dave weckl. Couple hundred other drummers rated higher. Can this be true? OK you drummers, give more your educated opinion.
Actually, it is pretty hard to believe that these guys weren't in the top 20 or so. Usually Buddy Rich is regarded as numero uno on any great drummer list, although I'm not a big fan of his feel. For big band, I prefer Gene Krupa, Sonny Payne, and Ed Shaughnessy.
Steve Gadd is maybe the greatest and most prolific all-around (pop, pop-rock, jazz, fusion) drummers-- brilliant and legendary. Vinnie Colaiuta is also brilliant and has a Tony Williams style.
Kudos to Ready for mentioning Cobham-- the master technician with precision, speed, and power. He gave birth to guys like Simon Phillips (Satriani, Toto, The Who) and Carter Beauford of DMB.
I will throw Terry Bozzio into the hat for being unworldly skilled, powerful, able to groove, rock, and do completely impossible experimental melodic hand/foot combinations. However, he is an acquired taste sometimes...

|Well Bonham of course and many of the greats have been mentioned.|
I didn't see joey jordison of slipknot mentioned... I was impressed but like mentioned above, a solo is one thing....

|Here is the late great Jim Chapin on the moeller technique. The moeller technique is known by most jazz greats. A lot of drummers have never heard of it. Jo Jo Mayer Is the first drummer I watched to point out this method.|
here's Jo Jo

|okay another heavy metal drummer I like is fredrik adersson with Armon Amarth|

Jo Jo Mayer is an outstanding percussionist. I have been trying to learn the Moeller method, but I have health problems and motivation problems.
My real challenge is a triple-stroke roll. It's not hard to do double-stroke rudiments, but allowing the stick to rebound twice is really hard for me. I want to try and control the stick, rather than allowing the stick to do what it needs to, if that makes sense. And that's where Moeller, and Jim Chapin, and Dave Weckl, come in.
When I, on rare occasions, get some speed going on a triple-stroke, it sounds so much better than LL-RR-LL-RR-LL-RR, if you know what I mean.

|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
