    If you could have any drummer's technique and overall ability. Who would it be?

    Mine would be Buddy's with a side of Joe Morello.

    Not sure I could actually name one...or just one. I can find traits in almost every drummer I hear....from Buddy to Ringo to many of you guys on this very site. That said, I’m not a huge fan of any of the so-called “famous” drummers.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    In answer to the question - "overall technique and overall ability", for me it would obviously be Buddy Rich. He could play anything any other drummer could play and play it better. But no one yet has been able to play everything Buddy could play. And, the things that some drummers have copied have never been played with the overall speed, musicianship, taste, and downright audacity that he played them.

    Not only did Buddy play with astonishing and awe-inspiring skill , he did it night after night after night after night for over 60 years. He was a demon on fire burning up the stage like no drummer ever before or after. So, if I could have even a modicum of his technique and ability I would be very happy indeed.

    Have to agree with you about trying to narrow it down to just one player. I had to think real hard. With so much time on my hands now, I've discovered a few stands outs on youtube who I've never heard before.

    Example: Gergo Borlai
