and also, I meant hip hop drummers affiliated to bands. most hip hop drummers tour with major label signees and are not part of a group.

Max Roach, Brian Blade (Black Dub), Steve Gadd (everyone,+ Eric Clapton)  Butch Trucks & J Johnny Johnson (Allman Bros. Band) to add just a few more to the outstanding list that this post has revealed.

There's no age limit to being an "all time great", and Tony has shown significant improvement over the years which only shown he's most likely going to get even better. 

 

Second, though Aaron does do a lot with RnB, he does do a lot with hip hop. 

 

Whether the drummer is part of a group or tours with a major label signee isn't exactly relevant.

Drummers ! a breed apart. I love drummers who are part of the ensemble not crash bang wallop merchants.

In that vein I propose :-

Jon Heisman whose work with Colosseum was exemplary.

Aynsley Dunbar.

Brian 'Blinky' Davison of the Nice.

 

I once had the pleasure of seeing the much maligned Ginger Baker leading Airforce in the National Stadium, Dublin. He worked his socks off, beautiful stuff leading a star studded band.

 

Joe Morello whose precision is delightful. I would like to see Larry Mullen play in a Bono/Edge free area, I feel he has a lot more to offer than the U2 tripe.
