How about "Drumbo", drummer with captain Beefheart.
I liked that guy with the lemonheads (specialy on the song mrs robbinson) and Tony Thompson, this session drummer did great things on Bowie/madonna etc.
As a band/beatlesfreak I must put levon Helm and Ringo in the spotlights
I also loved the things Sly Dunbar did.
Also have to mention Richy Hayward, Dale Crover and good old Jim Keltner.
