    Bonham and Moon are at the top, I think.

    I voted for Bonham.

    I put Copeland on the list, even though he is a bit more "jazzy" in his style.

    Bonham, though Peart and Moon are great too. But Moby Dick just totally kicks ass.

    Mitch Mitchell was pretty amazing, I like some Bonham.

    For more modern rock, Jimmy Chamberlain of Smashing Pumpkins is pretty amazing. At least, his work on Gish and Siamese Dream is.

    Peart and rather easily to my mind. I would call Moon the best 'banger' though.

    Bonham. Led Zeppelin had two of the greatest musicians in their fields.
