I have seen many good drummers but this list of drummers deliver the very best in timing, groove, coming right at you explosiveness!!! We can never forget the great Jazz fusion drummers of our era. Jeff Porcaro, Steve Gadd, Vinnie Colliuta, and many others.
But it is fair to say that technically NEIL PEART has to be at top!!! I am sure there are drummers unknown who can be in this class of drummers!! But the key is Practice, Practice, Practice!!
To be a drummer takes a special person, who has the ability to be multi-tasked at the same time!!! You have to be able to be explosive but smooth at the same time!!!
