Talking of Polls...

 Treble runs a feature on their collective 50 favourite drummers, of course, JC is right up there;
... [Chamberlin's] roots are in Buddy Rich and Deep Purple, and that his neurotic, gunslinging style is considered semi-revolutionary among rock drummers for its reliance on jazz-style riffs. His most varied work was on the titanic of nineties avant-rock, Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness, famous for its excess but scattered with off-chart gems like "Thru The Eyes Of Ruby," which perfects the Chamberlin snare sound  and "Galapagos," a piece of stormy minimalism which Chamberlin has identified as one of his favorite Pumpkins moments...
The band as it then existed crashed on the rocks, of course... but at the peak of the Pumpkins, no one brought the thunder more regularly — no one in the entire world.
