    Pupps' nomination, Carl Palmer. Below is from 2009, at 59 years of age, the others still can't touch him.

    Afraid not, since this is an individual title. I do, however, dig your selection. Throw in the War Pipes and ya got Pupps, being of Scott - Irish descent, every time. Now if ya wanna talk The Pipes, then Pupps has gotta go with the 2005 World Pipe Band champions...

    She does mostly covers but this little German girl has some talent. I believe she is 14...but I love the kids so I'm biased

    Buddy Rich

    Jack dejohnette

    Also I like Paul motion

    Neil Peart, Eddie Gomez, and Jeffry Ballard I think get honorable mentions too.

    And carter Beuford of Dave Matthews band is pretty dang fun to watch too
