What Drummers Out There Have Some Chops?

Okay, let's have some fun with this one!!!!  I have compiled a list of drummers that I think have some chops.  Do you know of more?  If so, send me some email with their name, and the URL of their web site if they have one, and I'll add them to the list!  The list is in no particular order, and drummers who have passed are welcome on the list!!!!

NOTE: The term "CHOPS" for our purposes refers to how well a drummer is able to play with a combination of hand/foot speed and technique.  What they play is actually defined as a "LICK" or a number of other terms.  As I find Web sites for the drummers on this list, I'll try and add them here or to my links page, but I want this to be more of a fun page for all those who visit DrumChops.com........  Get Involved and have some fun!!!
