I would have to say my favorite drummer at the moment is Neil Pert. I am usually more a Jazz guy, and that is the style that I want to eventually pursue, but no matter what style you're most into, you cannot deny the man's talent. Incredible.

So, who are your favorite drummers right now? It can be someone alive or dead, performing or retired, and any style. There are no parameters to the question!

Phil Collins of Genesis, Stewart Copeland of the Police, and Don Henley of the Eagles have always been an inspiration for me, especially Collins. Also, I'm inspired by some of the jazz drum instructors out there on the net like Connor Guilfoyle of Ireland and John X and John Riley of the USA.

John Dolmayan is my favorite drummer. He's the drummer of one of my favorite bands and I like his style. He has a style that no others have; both on appearance and skill.

I like the works of the renowned drummers and sometimes it's difficult to point one as the favourite. That said, I think this guys is a cool drummer Neil Peart

I've got quite a few drummers that i like the style of, but one that i'd like to mention is Taylor Hawkins. He was originally the drummer for Alanis Morissette back a few years ago but he's now the drummer for the Foo Fighters. Along with being a skilful drummer, he's also go his own unique style of playing that's hard to describe until you actually see him.

Have a look at a few YouTube videos or the documentary about the Foo Fighters and you'll see what I mean.

I love watching Mike Portnoy perform, he can play fast and can also play slow. Aside from that, I really like how he plays with the beat. But I prefer listening to his pieces with Winery Dogs compared to his pieces in Dream Theater. I don't think this next one is well known but I really love watching this guy perform. His name is Victor Guison and plays for a band called Franco.
