OK the 'Fastest Drumming' thread was somewhat pointless, so what about the most tasteful drummers? I want to talk about drummers who don't get the wraps for their technicality, who keep it simple yet are really effective at what they do. For me John Haughm stands out more than anyone. All his work is pretty simple, yet it sounds great, it's expressive and works really well with the music. The outro on 'Fire Above, Ice Below' contains some of my favourite drumming ever. I would mention John Bonham for the same reasons. Although he's more skilful, even on the simple songs his muscular style really drives the music well. Another who comes to mind is Martin Lopez on Opeth's Damnation album. He's a great metal drummer, but I anticipated that he would be limited to little more than keeping a basic beat in that mellow album. But he mixes it up beautifully and shows that you don't have to pound the shit out of drums to be effective.
