Its fun to argue lists and names. These conversations just go the wrong way when people forget that our personal beliefs/biases/perspectives very much determine who we think stand out. So long as we recognize the inherent limitations of these discussions, we are good.
It also bums me out when...
"Questlove is an average drummer to say the least."
I'm not sure what you've listened to but he pretty much defined breakbeat drumming. He played on and produced seminal albums like D'Angelo's Voodoo. He is most definitely not an average drummer.
