Marco is amazing, he's gotta be one of the best drummers right now. I have one of his instructional videos & I've heard a lot of his solo stuff. I think he's on some of Paul Gilbert's stuff too. Marco's very talented, I'm pretty sure he plays guitar very good too. The guy writes all of his own music; an amazingly talented guy for sure.

Virgil Donati is just simply extreme but most talented NEW drummer??

Well

I think Thomas Lang and Dave DiCenso (last one is drummer on John Petrucci's solo album)

They both are amazing....

Yeah, Thomas is great, seen his instructional video, he's very skilled, does some nice stick tricks too. Dave's great too, he sounds really good on the Petrucci recording.

Here's another guy that's pretty good :wink::

WITHOUT the "ancient" drummer technique of the guys like Gene Kruppa, etc... guys like Mike Portnoy, Neil Peart, etc... will not pop up like that way.

Yeah, a lot of love's gotta go out to Krupa & Rich. Without either of them, who knows? Plus, Rich's stints on Johnny Carson are classic.

Speaking of Gene Krupa; if you haven't seen Don Weis' film, The Gene Krupa Story, with Sal Mineo, from 1959, check it out, it's pretty good.

I also have the Channel One Suite:Buddy Rich and His Band dvd, released in 2003 by Lightyear Entertainment & I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, RECOMMEND it!!! Trust me on this one. :wink:

Id say mike Portney deffinatly. His drumming is just off this planet.

However Neil Peart wrote most of the lyrics for Rush's early material so id say his song writing abilities are top notch!

Joel Taylor's been mentioned, but I just wanted to let you all know that Joel has replaced Kofi Baker in Chris Poland's OHM:, at least for the east coast shows. Going to see OHM: again in May & I've seen Joel with Frank Gambale & I'm tellin' ya right now man Joel is AWESOME!!! :shock: OHM:'s new one (Amino Acid Flashback) is pretty good too, so if you have the chance, go see this tour. :wink: :guitar :peace
