4. Wow, this is such an excellent question that I'm not going to vote on it,
because I'm not in any position to select.

My gut response was first Gene Krupa and then Stewart Copeland.

Is there also a drummer named Jim Ketner who worked with Elvis Costello in the late 80s?

I'm no expert on drummers.

This is a great topic and I will be reading the comments of others. I didn't vote. But I'm fascinated by this very interesting topic.
