    Alex VH is great, but Mike Mangini rules. Mike Portnoy and Virgil Donati are awesome as well.
    Just go for it!

    Why doesn't Alex use his gong anymore? The black and white stripe drum set he used on he Fair Warning tour has got to be the most awesome looking drum set ever! If they ever got back with DLR, Alex needs to pull that set out of storage.

    For me, Alex is is the best drummer, but Neil Pert in his prime was incredible.

    All very talented musos, but Terry Bozzio is just insane, I have never heard anything that comes close to what he does on a kit.

    Default AVH!!

    Alex is the best drummer to me because like John Bohnam he totally has the skills and his very own drum tone. Neal, Virgil, Dean, Greg, Terri, even Tommy, are incredible drummers, but do they have there own tone that is recognizable to the world? NO, THEY DONT!

    I think both The Professor and Big Al are excellent.

    I do however think Nicko McBrain is one of the harder rock drummers to emulate...

    I would agree with that.

    Al is a great drummer, definately has his own sound.

    John Bonham would have to be number 1 for me though...

    Some of the other drummers I like include:
    Phil Rudd (AC/DC)
    Neil Peart (Rush)
    Bill Ward (Black Sabbath)
    Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
    Keith Moon (The Who)
    Larry Mullen Jnr (U2)
    Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe)
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    i give the over all award to Neil Peart for sheer skill and sound.
    That being said, its hard to beat Al for what he brings..his GIANT-ASS sound is the backbone of a mighty beast, VH..Neil Couldn't have carried it off with VH, as great as he is..
    Eddie is the greatest, period
