Stephen Singleton… Pete Best

Colin Bell… Mick Tucker, no question.

Robert Bobbert Pellett… Tico Torres

Will Cornell… I’m going with Richard Thompson’s drummer Michael Jerome….he’s also done work with Charlie Musselwhite and other studio sessions. A big part of the RT Band show being my favorite RT show of all the times I’ve seen him was Michael Jerome.

Nick Monaghan… Ronnie Tutt

Martin Richter… stumpy joe ?

Earl Grey… Martin, Eric “Stumpy Joe” Childs?

Steve Thorpe… Clem Burke imho

Mark Rodrigues… Ronnie Tutt

Roger Carey… Nollaig Bridgeman of the original Skid Row – Irish rock trio who featured later to achieve much recognition on guitar and vocals Gary Moore and Brush Shiels on bass and vocals. They were highly adventurous and exciting young players at the beginning of the 1970s. Nollaig (or Noel )had a great style and technique, perfect for what the band were doing….

Julian Humphries… me, im underated at how bad i am

Phil Gill… Richie Hayward, Little Feat. He could groove a trench from here to France.

Reid McDuffie… Phil, fantastic drummer. Saw him with Little Feat but also with Robert Plant in 83 where he astonished me playing matrial recorded by Phil Collins, Barrie Barlowe and Cozy Powell

Ian Mcgilvray… Mick Tucker

Paul Huggett… Terry Bozzio (Zappa, Missing Persons)

Roger Carey… Paul, Terry Bozzio is one of the most extraordinary drummers of the modern rock age. Not sure that he’s the most unappreciated Paul- any particular reasons why you picked him? One of the most exciting to watch drummers I ever saw…

Paul Huggett… Roger, yeah maybe extraordinary would be a better word, but he’s not as widely known as some. It’s just I happened to be listening to some Missing Persons stuff yesterday, and he does things that are quite… Baffling. 😄 I could come up with a few more including Jerry Edmonton from Steppenwolf… And maybe purely on underappreciated, Phil Collins in his day

Russell Field… Stevie Wonder

Mark Rodrigues… Russell, would you call Stevie a “rock” drummer though?

Russell Field… Mark, possibly not ok Mick Fleetwood then.

Leigh Kennedy… Dave Grohl..

Marcus J Lamb-Bentley… Prince

John Coleman… Russel Field

Stuart Moir… Sacha Trochet, one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to witness and call my friend .

Colin Gibb Black Lace… Mick Tucker (Sweet)

Don Novak… Brian Bennett

Paavali Mears… Dave Clark

Alastair Thompson… Alan White ( YES )

Lloyd Johnson… Tony Meehan and Micky Waller…

Tony Powell… Micky Waller every time

Colin Jefferys… Animal from the Muppets. Beast of a drummer

Dave Weeks… Colin, that was my choice – no contest

Colin Norton… Absolutely agree with Colin!

Clifford Rose… Jet Black of The Stranglers

Iain Cobby… Bill Bruford. simply the best

Colin Gibson… Jimmy Carl Black

Barry French… Not sure if he’s under appreciated but Colin Allen has played with a variety of bands & has an amazing CV (John Mayell’s Blues Breakers, Stone the crows, & Focus to name a few)

Roger Carey… He’s great on the “Hamburger Concerto” Focus album. Good call Barry…

Chris Meachen… Simon Kirke..

Paul Bannister… Manu Katché
