special one Baker for me, a massive amount of work goes into his performances but he makes look so easy, am I jealous?

I would add Carrot Top Baker.  I say Carrot Top because obviously we're not allowed to write "carrot top hair colour" on here, yet a certain special one did once see fit to say he wanted to kill all Welshmen after a Swansea game.
Notwithstanding that, Carrot Top Baker did play fantastic counter rhythms.
I would also doff my cap to Jon Heismann from Coliseum. 
Best group of drummers?  Burundi Black

Although not strictly a drummer.
The fantastic Ray Cooper (percussion)

He's the little bald geezer seen on so many bands performances.

I had forgotten about him!  I saw him only a few years ago at, believe it or not, an Elton John charity concert at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden.  The place was rocking!  (Still stick to Buddy Rich as THE all time greatest though)

Great drummer, and as we we're talking jazz, Billy Cobham and Gene Krupa were damn fine as well!

Mate of mine,a very decent drummer himself always cites Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins as his biggest influence. Was a jazz drummer originally apparently

David Garibaldi IMO without question top of the pile ....
Often imitated   never duplicated

Sol Amarfio  from the original Osibisa top class

Harold Brown  Lowrider Band/War

Clyde Stubbelfield, the original Funky drummer from the James Brown Band
Melvin Parker (maceo's brother) fropm the same outfit

Cedrick Burnside (son of R L Burnside), voted Blues Drummer of the year (recent years)

These boys can all play but are perhaps less well known than some of the above.

Based upon live performances: Stewart Copeland of The Police and Mick Fleetwood. Both of them were incredible on stage.

Otherwise, I'd say Bonzo Bonham.
