The best drummer is a drummer whose style best fits the band's style. Can anyone imagine the Stones without Charlie Watts?

A drummer of course has to be precise, know what's goin on musically and lyrically, and support and add to all that. That's when he doesnt stand out for being inferior or out of place.

If on top'o that he can give the music a gutsy drive and add some great garnish - like Danny Carey, Mike Portnoy, Scott Rockenfield, Jason Rullo, Mark Arrington, and a few others - then I say "bloody good !!!"  *horns*

Good to see that you mention Scott Rockenfield there Nicky, as I rate his performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in '88 on the Mindcrime tour as the best I have ever seen by any drummer  *horns* *horns*
