Lets go back a little: How bout Buddie Rich, or Gene Krupa ? :drummer:

While Buddy Rich died (and therefore slowed down) a mere score of years ago, Gene Krupa has been in the deceased mode for 3.4 decades.

They have both left the 'living ' building, so to speak.

My vote goes to Carl Palmer. I interviewed him just before his first American tour in Spring, 2007 with The Carl Palmer Band (interview has been archived - I will bring it out again soon).

I saw Carl play with ELP many a time 'back in the day'.

P.S. Yes, Bill Bruford is still around - playing some great Jazz; just released a double DVD that I have. And Alan White of Yes/John Lennon is playing in an excellent new band with Yesmen Billy Sherwood and Tony Kaye, CiRCA:
