Alot of good drummers mentioned here, I am just happy to see Mitch Mitchell mentioned a number of times, it has always seemed like Jimi got all the attention.

my sentiments exactly. Im goin to see the last show of Patti Smiths Meltdown Festival at the Royal Festival Hall next month, the show is called 'Songs of Experience', and its assorted musicians playing Jimi Hendrix songs, and music that inspired him. Im really looking forward to it, altho they havent mentioned any drummers playing the show yet, I wonder who will play? Here is my list (in no particular order):

Hugo Burnham
Dave Grohl
Taylor Hawkins
Mitch Mitchell
Topper Headon
Chad Smith
Jon Theodore
Stephen Morris
Roger Taylor
Joey Kramer

There are probably some I have forgotten, but those are the ones I can think of right now.

Nice to see my post has generated so much comment.

Based on who ive seen live in the flesh, live on dvd/video, live cd, i would say :

Ian Paice
Neal Peart
Carl Palmer

All three have produced the goods over so many years and ive been lucky to have grown up with them.

Cozy Powell

Gone, but not forgotten. check out MSG at the Budokan & his solo albums

Brian Downey

Lucky enough to see Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott when Brian was just amazing

Bobby Rondinelli

Back in Rainbow he was phenominal. A real nice guy as well.
I got to chat to him on the Soulmover tour.

There are obviously loads of others but these guys really stuck in my mind.

Hopefully we will get to see Chad over here with Glenn and i will be able to add him on .

Sue, my apologies for the "lesson" on Buddy Rich - but I actually have a related question (all, help please) - do you remember which drummer actually played the parts of Animal? I think it was Ian Hague.

I once asked Chris Farlowe who the drummer on his "Headlines" 1960s single was (spectacular drumming!), and he said, the same guy who played Animal's parts on the Muppets Show (and his name), but I don't remember who it was!?

Help highly appreciated - Thanks!

Muppet that was ..........Animal

Hi Christian

Your query inspired a bit of an investigative spark in me and a Google search brought up the name of Ronnie Verrall from the following link:
Hope it's what you are after

Thanks Ben, an interesting read. I doubt it's him though.
