Recently got a Yamaha electronic drum kit after 50 some odd years of tapping fingers, playing on coffee tables with chop sticks and grinding my teeth to the beat. Right up there with playing the kit is watching great drummers play their kits (real full size that is) I always wanted to play drums but never seemed to live in a place that would allow for it but now I just slap on headphones and knock myself out. Here is a list of drummers that I look up to even though some are no longer with us. There are tons of clips on youtube of all these greats.

Simon Phillips
Vinny Colaiuta
Omar Hakim
John Bonham
Jeff Porcaro

I'm hoping you guys can provide more names of drummers that rate up there with these guys and to be fair, there are good female drummers out there also so do include them.
I figure there must be many good drummers I'm unaware of and I'm hoping you all can help me discover them.

Cheers

Cool, good for you!

If you are a tapper like me (hands and fingers), the Roland HPD-15 (and 10 and 20 for that matter) is a great instrument.

May music cleanse your mind and soul!

P.S. - Neil Peart is my favorite libertarian drummer too!

Don't even get me started on Roland kits. I'd die for a TD-30KV but my Yamaha came in at just under a grand with the extra cymbal, the Roland was near 8 g's. You have to love the pad size though. I've had my kit for going on two years, if I win the lottery, it's Roland here I come

Yeah, the full kits are pricey indeed but, the Handsonics are about $500 or less used and you can put it in a backpack and take it along.

All i ever wanted was a drum set.

I even asked my folks when i was young, if i bought a shipping container, sunk it under 20 feet of dirt could i have one, they STILL said no.

I hope you are enjoying your freedom and your drum set.

I am jealous.

Drummer here, and I submit Dave Weckl, Bernard Purdie(ghost note guy), Danny Carey, Terry Bozzio, Steve Gadd and of course Buddy Rich! I did a thread sometime ago with numerous drummers. I realized most were from last century but, oh well.
A collection of great drummers
I like this Bernard Purdie vid cuz it is entertaining and shows ghost note playing, an essential part of any drummers repertoire.

If you don't know, Dave Grohl was the drummer for Nirvana [ Kurt Cobain ] and is now the front man for the Foo Fighters. He's a musical genius

Seconding John Bonham for Led Zeppelin… saw them live once. What a show.

Bohnam's kit was one of the biggest I have ever seen (back then) and he knew how to use it.

My favorite tune from them. Dig that beat, the backbone of any good rock and roll epic…

Kashmir
