Alan White - Yes
Keith Moon - Who
Carl Palmer - ELP
Cozy Powell - Jeff Beck, Rainbow, Sabbath (I saw him with Blackmore's Rainbow)
Haha of course.
Here's a question: What are the criteria you guys are using to evaluate this question? Technical prowess, creativity, musical intuition, etc.?
In other words, they kick ass!
That's a good way to put it....and if you put it that way the majority of those mentioned aren't close to this definition. I like drummers with finesse...drummers that make those around them sound better. Drummers that are versatile. I loved The Who but was never a fan of Moon's reckless abandon and tendency to overplay. I don't think he'd last 5 minutes in an accomplished jazz band but then he wouldn't need to because he was a classic rock drummer.
