    Howdy mate, welcome to the forum.
    Ha yeap, pretty common thread. %99 of answers is 'opinion', and IMO thats exactly correct.
    If i had to choose though id pick Derek Roddy. There are thousands of good ones though.

    I go to my local drum shop and purchase my sticks. I like to touch them before I buy them ;-)

    I think xweasel pretty much covered it all.. haha.

    Bonham and Carey are my top two. Then, it's a big mix of a bunch of jazzers and rockers.
