I'm talking about technique, diversity, time, and overall awesomeness.

One of hell talented drummer is for sure Virgil Donati. He owns them all I think. But my favorite is Mike Mangini, he has the best style to me. :D

Also, last week I had the chance to record Will Calhoun from Living Colour for his HeadFake project. He's not the best technician, but man, what a groove !!!

See the trailer I made

The guy in the poll is not Dana Carvey. It's Danny Carey, the drummer from TOOL.

I was thinking of putting ol' Al up there, but changed my mind at the last second.

I don't know about Coleson, Mangini is much better IMO.

Alex is pretty good, he's certainly a good drummer to watch live...
