IAN PAICE - My Fav Drummer says Albert Louis

Below is the lst part of an essay about Ian Paice ('Deep Purple' drummer), Tony Zee and drumming in general, written by Albert Louis a Singapore percussionist, ('Drumming For Health' creator and former Culture Vulture member):
 
I grew up during the rock era and my favourite drummer is Ian Paice of Deep Purple whose technique was so advanced for a rock drummer that no one came close. I saw him live at the National Stadium when he was 58 years old and even at that age he had not slackened in his power and played like he did in his albums.
 
 It is easy for drummers of the present generation to bring drumming to another level as videos, drum teachers and pioneers like Ian Paice help to set the tone.
Another drummer, Billy Cobham comes to mind too and it was in the later part of the seventies that he was doing what the present set is doing now because these people are simply "the animals of drumming". Albert concludes by naming David Wackle whom he places in the same category.

 (The 2nd and 3rd part of this essay are on separate posts.)

What about lead guitarists? Who are the prominent ones? Hank Marvin is one. Carlos Santana?
