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.
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.

Alex Lifeson's guitar sound made me a fan of RUSH. And you're right about Neil Peart's drumming. He grabs your attention immediately. I love the solo work he did on the "Hockey Night In Canada" theme song a few years ago. Neil combined two of my favorite joys in life, Hockey and RUSH.

Was never a big Rush fan
Thanks for the replies so far
Neil Peart's talent is what made me a rush fan...
When you hear their song listen to the drums
