Daddy0 - Just saw your mention of Ginger Baker in the old Cream LIVE recordings.  He was something else.  You also mentioned Cobham, who I saw with Mahavishnu three times.  The first time I saw them, I was literally stunned by their intensity.

Bill Bruford  -  I can't believe he hasn't been mentioned yet!
Bill Ward  -  Practically the first modern metal drummer!
Ginger Baker/Keith Moon  -  too hard to pick between!

I'd say those are pretty big influences to the drummers that currently influence me.

In terms of modern drumming (last century or so) it's gotta be:
1.) Gene Krupa
2.) Buddy Rich
3.) This ones tricky...cause bonham was influencial in such a massive way to rock drumming and what it is today, with out him I honestly don't think drumming would be the same.  At the same time Ringo totally invented rock drumming as a whole.  And then you got gadd who incorporates so much into his playing and has inspried a lot of today's greatest players  (Weckl, Beauford etc.) who wouldn't be playing the way they do with out his influence.  And there are so many more, like Elvin Jones, Stewart Copeland, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham that it really is hard to pick a third after the two i mentioned above.

Hmmm... I guess I missed this topic the first time around.

General Big 3:

Tony Williams
Jeff Pocaro
John Bonham

Personal Big 3:

Stewart Copeland
Terry Bozzio
Jeff Pocaro

Man, it's tough to limit it to three. :) I don't feel right not having Bill Bruford (personal) or Neil Peart (general) up there.

Seems there's a lot of drummers in people's lists who have only been around for the last 10 years or so. I think that's fine when saying who influenced your own personal growth. But I don't think you could say in a general sense that anyone who got their start after 1990 is a person of significant influence. History hasn't revealed that to us yet.

Not trying to dictate anything, just stating an opinion.

I agree with Side's take, although Dave Grohl has certainly had an effect, even in the short time he's been prominent.

I'm going to go a little left of center with my choices - no Buddy or Neil in this list, regardless of their talent or fame:

1. Kenny Clarke - Many consider him to be one of the creators of bebop. I'm personally more familiar with Max Roach's contribution, but jazz historians seem to lean towards Clarke. Without his innovations, most of us might not play the way we do when we play jazz.

2. Hal Blaine - If you listened to an hour of radio in the 60's, you heard at least half an hour of Hal Blaine. He influenced most rock drummers, whether they knew it or not. More people KNEW about Ringo. But more people were LISTENING to Blaine.

3. Steve Gadd - Steve made chops FEEL good, influencing the latest crop of uber-drummers in a big way. Virtually no pop, jazz, or session musician is immune to his influence, bringing the concept of intricate ghost notes blended with a fat, paradoxically simple feel to a new level. Without him there would be no Weckl or Vinnie.

Tough choices. Would have been easier if we'd been allowed five, or ten. But a fun mental exercise!
Hit on 2. Repeat on 4.
