I am by no means an expert on drums and drummers. By brother was a drummer in our band, so I know a little about equipment and recording techniques. But I know what I like: I like space; I like syncopation and odd time signatures; I like the unusual--perhaps even more than the extraordinary.
These are some of my favorites--the ones who always attract my attention when I'm listening to songs they're in. They are in some semblance of order.

Since the "Renaissance" of Prog in the 1990s, there have been several drummers that catch my ear every time I hear them. Again, they are in order of my admiration.

I do not know metal music very well (it has never been my favorite kind of music), but I've asked for help in getting to know the "who, what, where, and why" of Prog Metal drummers. so far, this is the list of drummers whose skills and performances interest me the most.
