Bob will always be my favorite metal drummer...Danny Carey a distant second ;)
That's tough. I like Nicko MacBrain from iron Maiden, Horgh from Immortal and Brann Dailor from Mastodon. I like Lars Ulrich as well even though he gets a lot of hate.
If you really want me to pick just one, it would be Nicko McBrain, because he's been one of my heros since I was like 14 lol.
I always wanted to be a drummer. I think it's the only instrument I'd ever be naturally good at. But, there's no room in my house for a drumkit.
Brian Downey from Thin Lizzy. One hell of a drummer.
TBDM's former drummer Shannon Lucas is fun to watch as well.
Proscriptor McGovern of ABSU !! is he even human?
We can't not give this guy a shout out :P
How did I forget John Bonham!?! He was a great drummer!. I also like Keith Moon and Joey Jordison.

my favor drummer - god I've a few John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Keith Moon (The Who), Rick Allen (Def Leppard) - but three favor drummers are Roger Taylor (Queen), Joey (Slipknot) & Cozy Powell (Whitesnake, Black Sabbath and many more bands)
Nice to see Nick Barker getting mentioned. He is my fav extreme metal drummer.
I also really like Paul Bostaph as an all-around drummer.
Shannon Lucas from Black Dahlia and Jason Bould from...I think Pitchshifter? I've only really listened to his stuff in AxeWound, but he's frickin nice.
