Aaaaaaah it's harder than I thought it would be.

I agree Taylor is probably better technically now, but Dave taught himself of pillows and boxes n stuff, and he's so powerful behind there.

Aaaah I pick...Tay...Dav...Tay...Daver

for me, it'd have to be taylor, drums aint all about power like dave seems to use (dont get me wrong i love dave too), it's about uniqueness and ability to come up with great drums for all manner of songs, each with their memorable and recognisable elements! blah blah blah plus i prefer taylors drum setup over daves :P

hawkins, not even close - he is the best rock drummer around right now hands down, never fucks up, i mean never - it's all about the intricacies he puts into the music, as rock solid as there ever was.

I've heard Taylor screw up live. I've heard his time go all over the place. He's a great drummer, but he's still human.

Just thought i mention, i think Taylor is a more skilled drummer where as Dave is a louder drummer. Both Great in their own way but Taylor gets my vote.

Taylor wont be remembered in the future. Dave will. The Bonham of our times. End of. This has nothing to do with how good they are as Taylor is awesome, though his drumming gets quite repetitive and dull for the Foos, I'd say Dave is more creative and innovative with what he does with his fills and patterns. Taylor seems to do really obvious fills.

I go for Dave's drumming. I prefer his loud, hard and powerful style.

There's not a "Best," they aren't competing with each other. Dave may be a great drummer, but that's not the roll he assigned himself in Foo Fighters. He trusts Taylor, Taylor trusts him, and their relationship makes Foo Fighters work.

I think if I were a producer hiring one of them as a session musician, I'd probably pick Dave if I needed a drum part written, Taylor if I just needed a drummer. Dave leaves a pretty unique stamp on every drum part he comes up with, but I think pound for pound Taylor is a better player.

Dave's style is beyond awesome, but when I hear Taylor's drumming I am simply in awe. He's a GOD!
