Back in the day they used to have vinyl records (store) but it went down when the owner got sick. After he passed away they had no means to keep it open. They now have a small record store named marschells where most teachers jumped ship and are teaching new students. Purchase (lessons) approved.

Glenn Koche (Wilco)
John Bonham
Jon Wurster (Superchunk / The Mountain Goats)
Chris Wilson (Ted Leo + The Pharmacists / Titus Andronicus)
Jason Tait (The Weakerthans)

Mostly meat and potatoes drummers, with the exception of Glenn Kotche. The thing they have in common though is that they all play for the song.

My 5 favorites varies from day to day...

Today I'm thinking...

Charlie Watts
Ringo Starr
John Bonham
Jeff Porcaro
Hal Blaine (which actually covers about 10 more of my favorite drummers)

My 10 faves would include Tony Williams, Steve Gadd, Mitch Mitchell and some others...

Surprised no one else picked Jeff for their 5 favorites...
