I'm going to get hammered for this, but, I think Ringo was underrated.  

I couldn't agree more.  While many of their hits were very simple, some of their other stuff had complexities.

Interestingly, a few years ago I was jamming with this band with another accomplished drummer.  We were switching off playing percussion and the drum kit.  When we got to a point where the band wanted to play a bunch of Beatle tunes, the other drummer got up and handed me the sticks, saying "I can't for the life of me figure out and play the drum part on Beatles tunes!"

Jimmy Chamberlin - Killer snare licks
Morgan Rose - great groove
Dave Mclaine(Machine Head) - great metal drummer
The Guy from the RX Bandits - Reggae/punk, fat grooves
Dave Grohl - Rock Machine
Joey Waronker - real original
Sean Kinney - Drummed for Alice in Chains....  i just really like his parts

and

Shannon Larkin - original drummer for snot, drummed for ugly kid joe and Amen(killer records), and now drums for Godsmack.  He recorded Glassjaws 2002 LP, and laid down some thick drum parts.  This guy just hammers.

Morgan Rose - He is great live. He never stops moving! Plus, his stuff is rock solid too.
Chad Sexton - One of the most under-rated technichal drummers out there. His beats are solid yet interesting and his solo is amazing!
Josh Freese - His beats are solid and can be technichal at times. I think he's just a great all around drummer.

Almost all of the drummers I have been seeing are pretty amazing drummers with pretty big acts, and I think they get proper recognition from ppl who matter....DRUMMERS!  But, if I had to add anyone to the list, it would be someone NONE of you on this board have ever heard of, but I could be wrong:  Mike Burch!  He is the drummer in Zydecajun, Wayne Toups' rocking Zydeco/Cajun/Country/R&B outfit here in South Louisiana!  He has some amazing fills unlike any I've heard from others in the genre (mainly southern country, NOT western.)  He consistently achieves AWESOME drum sounds in the studio as well as live (not a small feat for regional acts!)...he's a fun drummer that is underrated, even if it IS only b/c of lack of exposure...

That chick from Kid Rock.  She's not like, drop-dead amazing, but she compliments the tune nicely and she's got some great grooves.
Her name is Stefanie Eulinberg.  I saw her on a special where Michael McDonald was performing tunes from his Motown tribute album.  She did a fine job in what I considered a totally new style.

I didn't know Fats Domino played drums too.  I always thought he just played piano and sang about hills named after berries... ;D

I'd say that pretty much goes for Johnny Vidacovich as well.

Munetaka Higuchi, drummer for the Japanese band Loudness.

Check out the list of buddies he had playing on this album. They definatly don't under-rate his playing.  ;)

Highly recommended everyone here check out PAATOS. They are from Stockholm, Sweden. They play some variety of progressive rock, brit pop, shoegaze, modern rock etc.. mostly melancholic (which I love). Their drummer is really incredible. Their latest CD "Kallocain" had a live DVD with it and I was totally blown away by him.

Also, Martin Lopez of OPETH is a phenomenial drummer. OPETH is really breaking pretty huge now and it's wonderful to see that.. a very deserving band.

And of course GENE HOGLAN of Death/Strapping Young Lad/etc. fame is probably one of my all time favorites. The drumming on Death's "Individual Thought Patterns" may be the best drumming I've ever heard.. untouchable.

Keith Carlock: Time and Groove. Wow. This guy is going to be successful for studio work. An entire album with Steely Dan, and on tour with Sting. Very nice portfolio.
