santacruzom : 11/24/2021 7:22 pm : link
Selway is so fantastic. I particularly dig his drumming in The National Anthem.

Bryan Devendorf of The National is phenomenal, especially on Bloodbuzz Ohio and Afraid of Everyone. I think I'd pick Bloodbuzz Ohio as the song with my overall favorite drumming.

Mitch Mitchell from Jimi Hendrix experienc e

1983 a merman I should turn out to be and just in general underrated
Since you said drumming and not drummer...

Monster drumming here by Bill Ward.
So many great performances  
BigBlueBuff : 11/24/2021 8:03 pm : link
Just too many to list. I really like Charlie Watts in the opening to Honky Tonk Woman, so simple and yet so perfect. Neal Peart on YYZ, Ringo on a Ticket to Ride, Keith Moon on Pinball Wizard, Bill Bruford on about any early Yes song, Ginger Baker In the White Room and I don't think I've even gotten past 1980 yet, lol

Shayla / Union City Blues live version. Great songs but the drummer transforms them to great heights. Clem Burke - ( New Window )

Blondie’s drummer Clem Burke stood out to me a long time ago for his high energy and solid grooves. Fun drummer to watch.

For sure, must listen to Pneuma live cam several times a week. There’s something about Ticks and Leeches that gets me every time though. His speed, power and precision is simply insane.

Such a great, underrated song. Love the drums, too.

Carl Palmer of ELP was the one of the all time great drummers

Loved all of his solo work. Ranks right up there with Bonham,Moon and Ginger Baker

deep purple space trucking

Ian Paice is easily one of the most underrated drummers of all time.
Yes there has been better but if you actually listen to a lot of Deep Purple outside of the dozen songs that get radio play.
Some of the stuff he has played is incredible. It is a shame that he does not get his due credit.

As for a favorite. There are so many, but Scott Travis of Judas Priest playing Painkiller. Pure, raw power drumming. Easily up there for me.

Thanks. Hoping this would be overlooked.

IMO Peart is the king of the drumset!

…But Trampled Under Foot by Led Zep is amazing. Bonham is truly amazing on some of those fills.

How about Harold Simon Belsky?  
M.S. : 11/25/2021 10:28 am : link

Better known as Hal Blaine. Not one song in particular but how about his session drumming on 150 US top 10 hits, 40 of which went to number one!

As for my favorite drummer, that’s easy: Ginger Baker.

Gotta be the Dueling Devils Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Anything they did was great by me!

Clem Burke is great. Besides Blondie he played with all the biggies like Peter Townsend, Eurythemics, Dylan, The Ramones, and many others. Also in the R&R HOF.
Steve Gadd, Aja, Steely Dan

He's been killing live for Steely Dan for more than a decade.

Here he is tackling the Aja solo.

so I can't speak to difficulty or how technical a drummer is but I always heard people rave about Jeff Picarro in general and especially on Rosanna (which he admits to basing it somewhat on Fool in the Rain), which made me a fan of Toto as a kid. Another that stands out to me is Jim Fox of James Gang with Funk #49.
Love Bonham on Fool in the Rain

And although he ebbs and flows on my nerves, Dave Grohl on Everlong is phenomenal
