Arguably (by some, at least... ha ha) the best drummer of our era... a couple interesting articles below and his "career in pictures," as well. Some pretty cool stuff. Well, I was born in '72... Does that count as part of "my" era??

While Baker ranks with some of the best, I'm not sure I would put him in the status of the best of our era. I'm not sure what "our era" is, but I would have to say that Neil Peart of Rush and Jon Bonham(deceased) of Led Zeppelin are/were the best of my era at least. Bonham's son Jason is following in his dad's footsteps and one day will be ranked up there as one of the greats.

Oh and let not forget Rick Allen of Def Leppard. He could play better with one arm than some drummers with both.
