    The magic drumming genie grants you powers so that now you are one of the best drummers in the world.

    The whole idea is that you have the skills and chops to step into any band as their drummer. Make sense?

    Does that change your answer?

    Good choices! I guess I should have stated in my initial post when I started this thread, skill level doesn't matter. It's all about who you think you'd have the most fun drumming with/for.

    Lake Street Dive, because their bass player, Bridget Kearney, is amazingly gifted and it would be fun to be the rhythm section with her. Their drummer, Mike Calabrese is also amazingly gifted. If I could play like he does, I would be one happy camper.

    I'd choose the Foo Fighters. I think Dave Groehl is multi talented musician and it'd be fun to work with him even though their current drummer, Taylor Hawkins, is very under rated.
    JLPonty ,Mahavishnu,McCoy Tyner,Tool,Steve Khan,Tull.

    Give me a couple of weeks of rehearsal to get my chops back to where they should be, and I'd have a blast.

    To paraphrase Ansley Dunbar:

    My groupies these days are old and geeky drummers ,but I gave up 16 year old's back in the 80's.

    So many great responses. The diversity is really cool.

    For me...Jethro Tull when John GlassCoc* was alive. He was their best bass player, IMHO, and I would have loved to jam with him. The music was so rocking and yet so unique with room for a lot of experimentation, too.

    I wanted to say the Mighty Led Zep, but that felt like flat out sacrilege.

    I think I love to play the drums simply because you get to hit 'em!!!

    I keep thinking about this and I can't think of any band I want to play drums for. The rigors of gigging keeps me from wanting to be in a band.

    I have this little mp3 player with these ear buds and I wear this under these big ear muffs like people at the riffle range use. Well I was drumming to BOC's Burning for you,Maiden's Running Free, among other tunes.

    Well I quit that cause I had work to do but I'm still wearing these ear buds and Space trucking comes on and I'm quickly reminded of the greatness of Ian Paice. Man what a drummer! He's got it all ya know chops,killer grooves. just a snazzy style Buddy Rich like in someways.
