Got to be Clyde Stubblefield from the JB's - was listening to that "In the Jungle Groove" - still none finer.

Have to agree about Stewart Copeland though, can't beat that loose, intricate feel.

Had to look the name up but the drummer from the Beat, Everett Moreton is amazing too. Check out Twist and Crawl, and Mirror in the Bathroom.
Hmm....
