Bill Bruford has the best snare drum sound. Listen to any track from Fish Out Of Water.

Mmmmmmmmmm. Bruford's is indeed fantastic.
Although I am by no means an expert on the subject, Gavin Harrison has to be my overall favourite. Sickeningly snappy and tight.

I know who has the worst.  Mike Portnoy.

The best of any genre belongs to (insert any pre-60s jazz drummer here).  I'll say Buddy Rich.

Always thought Neil's kit/snare drum on Roll The Bones was fantastic.

Bonham had a great tight snare. Love the sound on "Poor Tom"

Phil Collins, truly. His snare tone particularly sounds lovely on The Cinema Show and live it especially does.

Yeah Portnoy has a terrible snare sound. I would say Bruford's is the most distinct but Peart used to use an old Slingerland Radio King Solid One-Ply drum and that sucker had tons of crack, especially live. Nowadays I think Neil uses a DW One Ply Solid Snare but that Radio King was deadly.

Gavin's kit is flawless sounding. Some people prefer the natural sound like Dave Turncrantz, which is good too.

Don't understand the hate tbh. If it was used in some other styles of music (and some artists probably would) I'm sure no one would bat an eyelid.

It depends what the music requires. For a high-end, "CRACK!" kind of snare drum sound there's really no better than Peart or Stewart Copeland. But then again, if you want a fat, dead THUD for a snare sound, you might turn to a Tom Petty or Cheap Trick record. Just depends.

I think some of the best overall mixed drums are on Dream Theater's "Awake" album.

Come on man. You and I both know that those drums that Lars used on st. Anger sound like hollowed out cow bells. Lol.
Nooooo goody! ;)

I'm not a big fan of St. Anger, no secret there.....I do however really dig the sound of a snare drum, when the drummer removes the snare from the drum. (It's not really a snare drum then.....Lars doesn't play a snare drum on St. Anger eitherWink)
Anyways here's one example where the snare is removed, - performed by Ze Smashing Pumpkins. I've always loved this one - especially the drum sound:

Again, as with all music, it is really down to the implementation of the given 'effect'.

Best snare drum sound though? Couldn't say, but I've always had a thing for Pierre Moerlen's early playing - especially on the You album with Gong. 
For a newer example, I'd say Ivan Fedotov off of Vespero. He has a highly distinct way of utilising his snare drum, and the sound he ends up with is downright snarling at times. Definitely one of my current faves along with Thorstein Lofthus from elephant9 and Shining.

I agree.  I've always tried to get my snare to sound like his.

Oh the best Snare Drum is Lars Ulrich on the St. Anger record...

Can you imagine if someone actually thought that?
