We already have a poll about our ten best guitarists, but we have nothing about drummers. So here, post the five best drummers in your opinion (not favourite). Also, we all love Rina so let's just add her to our list by default and add others to our top five.
Here's mine:

1. Keith Moon (The Who).
2. Chad Smith (RHCP).
3. Aki Hakala (The Rasmus).
4. Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden).
5. Roger Taylor (Queen).



SCANDAL:

Sexy
Cute
Adorable
Noble
Dynamic
Amazing
Lovely.

Pat Torphy is very underappreciated by the masses.  I'm attending a tribute show to him next week.  There should be a lot of great drummers present for that one.

On topic--
I knew as soon as I sent my list I was going to forget someone and sure enough I did, but don't know who to take out of my list (maybe Portnoy).  Kenny Aronoff should be recognized as one of the top drummers.  The guy is incredibly versatile and has played with more groups and artists than we could probably name in the entire Band Alphabet game thread.
