Time for a profile moment...
 
If you could pick one drummer, who would you go with that embodies your best bass playing style and accents?

I really like Mike Clark's work. I think that he could just about do it all.  But then there is Mickey Hart  and Bill Kreutzmann. Dave Garibaldi, Gene Krupa______OOOOOO Thats more then  one!  Well lets see?

I may be in the minority here, but I've always been of the opinion that less is definitely more with a drummer.  Someone who can play quietly, and doesn't feel the need for 37 cymbals and a gong is a good sign.  For that matter, why use a drummer at all?  Bluegrass as a genre does pretty well without one.  All that being said, the drummer in our band is simply incredible, and it makes a huge difference in the quality of everyone's playing to have him around.

At the moment, I don't have a bass playing style.  Recent evidence suggests that if I keep practicing everyday, perhaps I might have one in another year or two, or three, or some other significant period of time.

I am very lucky in that I have already found my dream drummer - Greg DeGuglielmo. He's the drummer on most of my recordings. He is influenced by several of the people mentioned in this thread - kind of a combination of Mickey Hart & Bill Kreutzmann, but also jazz drummers like Tony Williams, Jack DeJohnette, etc., plus Mike Clark, Jim Keltner, Steve Gadd, etc. etc., just an all around musical guy! He can lay down the fattest groove, and then be improvising with the ability to head in a different direction in an instant.
 
If I had to choose one famous drummer, it would probably be Jack DeJohnette, especially from the Live Evil phase...

Okay, so I did a search for the Drum Rudiments.  It's been a while since I saw a page full of english words, and had absolutely no clue what half of them were.  However, I can guess their meaning, given the onomatopoeia'ic nature of most of the words.  And they look really fun to use in daily conversation:
 
Hey Bob, did you hear the flam paradiddle diddle, and the ratamacue in that last song? I sure like it.
 
Yeah I heard, but I prefer a little more flamacue, and pataflafla in my music.
 
/and so forth
