On second thought, Martin Lopez and Brann Dailor would round out my top four. After that there's too many.

Not I, Bobby Jarzombek's been my #1 for some time now, he just absolutely rules. He knows of my devout fanship and was kind enough to give me one of his custom personalized Halford drum sticks. Helluva nice guy, and an absolute beastly machine on the kit.

Absolutely. I love everything Bobby does. He was awesome the other night with Fates Warning. Can't wait to see him again when Sebastian Bach tours.

Never seen him do a solo though. The best drums solos I've ever seen were Igor Cavalera in 2004 when Sepultura supported Motorhead and Mike Terrana earlier this year with Masterplan supporting Saxon.

He did a solo when I saw him with Bach on 11/12/06. It was excellent. Only downside was that Bach introduced him and called him Bobby JAR-zombek, like pronouncing the J like he was saying Jar. It was funny.

Scott Travis, Priest drummer '91-present (not Randy Travis, as was reported recently).

I also want to mention that I love "Stevo" Moore from Dungeon, drummer on the original Ressurrection, A Rise to Power, and the Under the Rising Sun DVD. I've heard few display that much speed and precision when it comes to speed metal / dounle bass drumming. My jaw was on the floor at times.

Aside from the song Painkiller and a few other songs on that album, I would say Scott Travis is the most boring drummer Priest has had ever. And that says a lot, since Priest aren't exactly known for great drummers. Then again... some 30 years ago... :D

Dave Holland was a lot more boring that Scott Travis.

I don't know. One time I had a post-Holland-Priest binge (that's the best way I could describe it), and then I went back and listened to Screaming For Vengeance and I ended up noticing how "cool" the drums were. :eyes:
