Most underrated drummer?

Carter Beauford is probably highly rated but I just don't know. I can't really listen to very many DMB songs but he's really great.

Or Tim Alexander. I love the drummering in early Primus. John the Fisherman is a killer drum song. Claypool doesn't fuck around when he hires drummers, they're all good.

Tommy Aldridge. He is a quiet unsung hero I'm my opinion
He's a pretty big name with a huge reputation for being awesome live. I'd say he gets his due.

Aquiles Prieste for me.. Angra drummer back in the day. Some amazing drumming, very musical, great chops. Incorporates that brazilian samba feel into his rythms.

Lars. He plays the drums average but his ability to arrange and write SONGS is waaaay underrated and at the end of the day that’s what matters (to most people).

Cant say if this applies as he's just lesser known but there is a session guy I've been following Robin Stone who is absolutely incredible, especially if you like fast metal drums but he does get hired for all genres. Kind of invented his own foot technique that he jokingly calls the sock polisher. Hes pretty funny tbh and hes insane on the drums.

being serious my answer is Ken Schalk from Candiria and its not even really close. he hit and grooved harder than anyone ever. Candiria as a whole might be the most underrated band ever.

Jeff Porcaro had amazing feel
It's Jeff for me too; I thought I'd be the only one to nominate him. For pop, funk, fusion & rock he's my #1. For fusion-only it's Steve Gadd for me.

Some of Jeff's credits:

Oops! The list is too-long for the board to handle! Will still have to split it up:

EDIT
How can he be underrated with so many credits, you ask? Simple; he wasn't known to the consumer in-general and didn't big-note himself. Just got the job done... impeccably.
