I love these music lists. In no particular order:
Terry Bozzio (UK, Frank Zappa) - Not really a Frank Zappa fan but I found this performance amazing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2gLggbIipc
Phil Collins (Genesis) - Probably the most underrated drummer in my opinion. In the heyday of Genesis, most people didn't even realize he played drums.
Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia)
Alan White (Yes)
Roger Taylor (Queen)
Stewart Copeland (Police)
Bill Bruford (King Crimson, Yes)
Simon Phillips (Various)
Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson)
Cozy Powell (Jeff Beck, Rainbow, solo, various)

Other than Cozy Powell and Roger Taylor, mostly progressive music
