You can be fast and you can be advanced and you can be original. I think Virgil fits all of those bills, making him the legend he is.

That said, there are a few more drummers I find scary good on one or more of said accounts.

I'll nominate Pete Zeldman's for that list, I've studied with him and can confidently say he's way out there conceptually and musically...

IMHO Chris grooves harder than any of the other guys you mentioned.

It baffles me that the sound on DrumChannel is sub-par.
(In my opinion, the videos Virgil produces in his studio, are of crazy production value)

Also, I don't quite agree with Virgil's cymbal selection. The crashes here die too quickly, but the drumming is awesome :)
