    Don't take my word for it. Check this out:

    I completely agree with you 11top on Mike Portnoy. He has been my favorite since 1992 simply amazing.

    I don't think he has been mentioned, but one of my favorites is Peter Criss..

    The most influential drummer for me would probably be John Bonham, because from the first moment I heard Good Times/Bad Times, I wanted to play guitar with that dude on the drums. I also liked the styles of Ian Paice of Deep Purple, Bill Bruford of Yes, and Barriemore Barlow of Jethro Tull.

    Mike Portnoy for sure and also Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth) is VERY creative drummer. I miss him a lot (sorry, Ax, you're awesome too).

    I started to figure out how cool Lopez' drumming is while watching the "Lamentations" DVD. Great feel!

    Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree) blows me away.

    Hands down I've listened more to Neil Peart than any other drummer.

    Me too! I remember I was blown away even by his double-kick delivery (yes, delivery). It sounded... melodic!
