Nice to see Phil EhartI have been alive for 57 years....no way I can keep it to “5”....lol.
BUT-I can give you my top 5 from the year I first starting drumming....(1977)-
Nigel Olsson\Roger Pope (for years I thought they were the same drummer)
Hal Blaine\Russ Kunkel\Jim Keltner\Jim Gordon (At 14 I probably didn’t even know their names...but I loved everything they were doing).
I just realized that isn’t even close to a list of my favs lol...
