I know there are probably a lot of drummers that would be considered "better" but I really love how Jeff Campeteli (spelling?) plays. Saw him yet again during Satches last visit to my area and I just love his vibe.

Yeah, Jeff Campitelli's another drummer I like. The most important thing is groove, and he's certainly got it. Vinnie, however, just strikes a chord with me - I'd love to be able to hire him if I ever got round to make recordings. He's a brilliant drummer.

I'm a bass player, so my answers will be very different from the guitar players I would guess.

JD Blair
Dennis Chambers
Peter Erksine

and don't forget

Tony motherfucking Williams

Steve Smith is the pocket GOD ! see him with Vital Information.
also:
Chambers
Calutia (spell)
Peart (great march cadence feel) Portnoy doesn't compare !

Plus, any drummer that can sensitize playing around the beat !

Great dummers, in my opinion, are

Nick Menza (Megadeth)
Keith Moon (The Who)
Peter Criss (Kiss)
Mike Portnoy (DT)

Why? I guess I like their sound, rhythm, energy, originality and their ability to serve the overall song and also put in a few tricks here and there. The same reasons as why I like a guitar player, I suppose.

Vinnie is my dream drummer. Everything he plays in sounds so good. :)
