Surely there are better videos of both drummers out there, but these 2 captures some of the same "styles", if one might say so....

Ok, and let's bring the 2 guys together in a head-to-head compo:

More drummers:

Finnish Sami Kuoppamäki
(and with another talent, Kimmo Pohjonen)

Furio Chirico from Italy. For more varied playing, check out Arti E Mestieri's "Articolazioni" in Youtube. It's in 3 parts.

And Brazilian Kiko Freitas delivers some good stuff, drumsolo starts around 5:30
