I can name two drummers from PDX who would've made excellent, and vastly superior, replacements
to Kenny Jones:  Sam Henry (1st drummer for the Wipers, then late of Napalm Beach, and
Kevin Folles, who drummed jazz, rock (in my band and others), and then went to the SF
Conservatory of Music after doing a stint at the Portland Youth Philharmonic... 
Want more? I got 'em....  I liked Clem Burke O.K., and on a great day  he'd a made a great replacment....
