And How About...

The best rock drummers you've never heard of (and a couple you have):

Rick Marotta - the funkiest drummer I've ever heard
Carl Radle - the early days (Delany and Bonnie; Leon Russell; Mad Dogs and Englishmen)
Levon Helm - THE BAND
Uriel Jones - The OTHER Funk Brother
Russ Kunkle - oldies
Dallas Taylor - but
Bruce Rowland - goodies
Stewart Copeland
Narada Michael Walden

Essentially there are some very good rock drummers that have played in virtual obscurity. They don?t happen to be in hot selling bands but the ( well known ) artists with whom they played couldn't have done it without them.
