...G inger Baker, John Bonham, and my favourite Keith Moon, not for his technical ability, but as said above, pure entertainment value, putting in fills where there wasn't the room - or even the necessity.

Baker and Bruce - fantastic together: hate each others guts. Some psychological point to be made there (don't ask me, guv.)
When Cream played at St. Mary's Col, Baker got down off his kit and started playing the radiators around the sides of the room - still fanatastic.

Bonham isn't to everyone's taste but I love the way, on 'Rock and Roll' (IV album) the drumming almost becomes part of the vocal.

All of the above. Keith Moon, a complete one off.

I love Sly Dunbar. His work,(together with Robbie Shakespeare) with Dylan,Joe Cocker, Grace Jones,to name but a few.

His 'in the pocket' grooves accentuated the strength of the songs and vocalists.
