In no special order.

Donati
Jimmy Chamberlin
Matt Cameron
Bill Bruford
Sami Kuoppamäki (a fantastic Finnish drummer)

These are the ones that have influenced me the most, maybe... but there are a million more whom I could and should name..

Bonham
Michael Giles
Vinnie Colaiuta
Pat Mastelotto (Pats playing and combination of electronics and acoustic drums is just genious with the current line-up of King Crimson! Check "The Power to Believe" and "Eyes Wide Open"-DVD.)


Cheers..
