Hands Down.. The greatest drummer of all time. A drummer known for the 'Stick Trick' and could play at massive speed and had lots of dexterity. You couldn't be more amazed watching him play the solos. He has played with lot of great musician and we don't forget the Muppetshow where Animal and Buddy where dueling. I don't think any can surpass this mans skills..
