I really don't know any of those drummers because I'm not that old. :tongue:

BUT... I do know Joey Jordanson from the band Slipknot and Dave Lombardo from Slayer can reak havoc on anything. In my eyes they're the best because I have yet to see any of the others in person.

*Waits to be bashed* :lol:

Edit:

I missed Dave Grohl. I must give him credit too.

Joey's amazing talent? Head Drumming:

Gonna have to go with no one on the list but I did enjoy Tommy Lee quite a bit, I also have heard redundantly Vinnie Paul for like 10 + years and I like him also.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
