I love Neil and Buddy, but who really emulated them afterwards?
Bonham emulated both Gene and Buddy. Neil got things from both of them as well. Gene and Buddy major influencers of drummers from the 40's to 80's.
Many 60's, 70's, and even 80's rockers cite Buddy and Gene as important influences.
On the original list I agree with Gene.......everyone else is debatable. I'd put Buddy #2 if only because he showed every drummer since what IS possible on the drum kit.
The 4th is very debatable. But I could go with almost anyone. Surprised no one mentioned Papa Jo Jones who heavily influenced all 30's, 40's, and 50's drummers......big band and jazz.
Hal Blaine influenced EVERY drummer of the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's as well. Many of us didn't even know it was him on all those hit records. I didn't know there was a "wrecking crew" until the past 10 yrs.
