    Since it's favorite and not best drummers, I'll go with the guys that shaped me as a drummer and continue to influence me today

    Vinnie Paul
    Carter Beauford
    Gregg Bissonette
    Bill Ward

    And last but not least, everybody's favorite...especially YOU, Aurora...

    Mr. Lars Ulrich.

    Good call on Vinnie Paul. I swear he used the biggest damn sticks ever. It's like he is drumming with tree trunks.

    Yeah. Chris Adler... I was drunk...

    And it pretty much says you suck if you pick the wrong Adler and you're a drummer.

    The first time I took my daughter to FM (for her 6th birthday - I am either great dad or DHS dad), he came out after the show and talked to her, very nice guy.
