Chick Webb was one of the greats, as both a jazz/swing drummer and bandleader. He and his band could swing with the best of them. Sadly, he died quite young.
Here's his bio from Wikipedia:
"Paranoid is just like an anchor. It really secures everything about the metal movement in one record. It's all there: the riffs, the vocal performance of Ozzy, the song titles, what the lyrics are about. It's just a classic defining moment."
--Rob Halford of Judas Priest
