Joe Lovano!!!!
Mike Brecker, Chick Corea, George Coligan, Don Alias (most people only think of him as a percussionist,) and if I am going to go "there" then I should mention Mino Cinelu, and Sam Clayton (had a little 3 piece as part of his percussion set-up with Little Feat (I always thought that was REALLY cool!)

Steve Perry (from what I've been told is a very good drummer,) and Stevie Wonder!!!!

Steve Perry began his music career as a drummer, so did Gary Buesy who was once signed to Epic Records, played on some Leon Russell Recordings, etc.....

Chevy Chase played in a band called Chameleon Church in the late 60s. Supposedly he played drums, sang, and played keys as well.

How could I forget Billy Bob Thornton. He's a solid drummer and a great guy. I brought him on board as a Zildjian artist. This was taken in 2007 when he visited.

A few months later while I was in Los Angeles, he invited me to his house while he was recording in his home studio. Great guy.

He also was the drummer for a college band called the Leather Canary which included Walter Becker and Donald Fagen. He also apparently has perfect pitch.
