I vote for Barriemore Barlow as he drums on my two favourite Tull albums ‘’Thick As A Brick’’ and ‘’Songs From The Wood’’ and I think he is also their best drummer on a technical level.

I choose Bunker just for his solo on the DVD, Jethro Tull - Nothing is easy: Isle of Wight '70
killer drum solo  :-)  and for the rest also, not to be missed by any fan.

P.S.: love Barlow too  :-)

Clive had a really tasteful drumming style but Barlow is just great in all aspects.

Barriemore Barlowe by far. His work on the Bursting Out live album is top notch, as well as all the studio albums from 1971-1979.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Barriemore or Clive. Between the two, you have Tull's greatest albums from their golden age (Bunker from This Was to Aqualung, Barlow from Thick as a Brick to Stormwatch). I chose Barriemore on the strength of his playing on Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play. Phenomenal drumming. The rest of the drummers are non-entities, as far as I'm concerned, except for Dave Mattacks, but his best playing was with Fairport Convention, not Tull.

I was just thinking about this same subject.
 
Barlow, without question.  Phenomenal.
Clive Bunker.

For me, Clive Bunker WAS Jethro Tull's drummer. After that, it was session musicians, there was no Jethro Tull, only Ian Anderson and friends.

Can't vote as not familiar enough with Tull's depth of work.  I also had no idea they had so many drummers!
As a matter of interest and perhaps a different thread. Has a band had more drummers? Or other players? I don't mean a solo artist, but a full-time band!

Yes, you've said it. Barlow is indeed the best, with Clive right behind, and the rest, even though great drummers, follow behind.
