    Let's hear it for Drummers

    I've always loved what a good drummer brings to the total sound of a song. Remember the first time I really focused on the drummer was at a Fleetwood Mac concert pre Stevie Nicks. I spent part of the show in the seating area behind the stage and watched Mick Fleetwood drum. Opened my eyes to what a good drummer is actually doing, and how important they are.

    Here's Jim Gordon. The list of songs he contributed to is amazing. He was in Derek and the Dominos. Developed schizophrenia, murdered his mother, and is still confined to this day. But what an amazing sound.

    Who do you like? Post them up.

    Oh my God another "it doesn't get any better" or "nuff said".

    Like most things in life opinions vary.



    New rule in this thread: Post what you like but don't say this is the best drummer that there ever was. Bottom line, there have been many talented drummers and no matter what fancy smancy list of "best drummers ever" you pull up: Opinions vary.

    Probably the best drummer I've seen live besides Neil Peart is Carl Palmer of Emerson Lake & Palmer.

    DJ is right, you can't say that one drummer is the best, they are different but there are a lot of great drummers. Really nice to see Stuart Copeland get a mention. I bought Regatta De Blanc when it first came out, it's still a favourite and Copeland's drumming is some of the best I've ever heard.

    I often think that drummers don't get taken seriously if they are in a pop band and the direction Phil Collins took later in his career sees him overlooked but he was a great drummer. For me it's not about fancy solos but what the drummer adds to the music. Ringo Star is similar. None of these three bands would have been a patch on what they were if they hadn't had these great drummers. Anyone who thinks Ringo isn't a good drummer has never really paid any attention to what he did.

    Ha ha, missed that ;0) I've never heard another drummer bash Ringo but it was quite common to hear other people say that he wasn't a good drummer. Which is nonsense. You can't have the most successful band in the world with a bad drummer. He was like Keith Moon, he just made stuff up but it worked.

    In contrast to all the great band drummers mentioned, I think Roger Hawkins as a studio drummer probably merits a mention. This guy has probably played on even more tracks than Ringo.

    And he's like, totally the best drummer in the world, because it just doesn't get any better. 'Nuff said. Word.

    He was in a Sketchers commercial last year and every time it came on I just wanted to hear more of it, he's got such a great sound!

    Jazz drummers are always my favorite. Max Roach was the perfect drummer for this album. Duke Ellington, Max Roach, Charles Mingus.

    As far as more recent rock drummers go, John Clardy is one of my favorites. Definitely has chops and can compose more coherent parts than the likes of Zach Hill who is basically all chops.

    Nuff said. Not nuff said. Word. More Word.

    Ginger Baker.

    (ffwd ~9 mins in for Baker's contribution)

    Also, there's a documentary out there (watch it in full on YouTube) called Beware of Mr. Baker . I haven't seen it yet, but it looks like it's very worth the time

    I get it. It's about taste.

    Bonzo was my fave but of course he was mentioned almost right off the top.

    Baker, I think, was the inspiration for the Muppets Animal. And his rep for hard drugs and bad living and abrasive behavior is well-earned.

    But still. Cream.

    I'm a drummer. There are many to choose from but I do like listening to Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins (video is slightly NSFW in title only):

    I don't know, I don't think Travis Barker has anything on Zach Hill. I don't know if you play any instruments, but as a drummer, the level of control (in spacing, unfortunately not in dynamics) that Zach Hill shows in that video is insane. The four-limb coordination is solid, too. I could have put his speedier stuff up, but that's probably the best composed piece I've heard him play on.

    The spread outness of the drumset in that soulja boy remix reminds me of how John Stainer (former drummer from Helmet) sets up his set for when he plays with Battles. He put a cymbal way up high as a joke and it just stuck. It's in this very odd video and there's live footage of him playing it just like that.



    Crankout, woo for being a drummer.

    Certain songs I love can come from bands I like and bands I don't really care for, not saying I don't care for Helmet, Unsung is one of those songs.

    I was distracted while watching that Battles video, there's a lot going on in there, hard to focus on the drumming.

    LOL! BJ Wilson and John Bonham were the best drummers out of the lot. Funny thing is, they were rehashing old jazz stuff (note that is not a bad thing).

    Listen to Max Roach's "The Drum also Waltzes" and you'll hear where JB got the intro to the drum solo in Moby Dick.

    When this thread hit the big time my first thought and first post was John Bonham then Neil Peart. I checked out the top 10 list after that and they are listed #1 and 2. Peart then Bonham.

    Crankout beat me to it. I don't think there can ever be a "best", but I love Jimmy's jazz influenced rock sound. He just makes it look so easy!

    Maybe so but Louis Bellson was known for being the first to come up with it.
    (drummer here also) My sinsei in Cleveland years ago was a student of Ed Shaughnessy from the tonight show so I was trained to respect all the old greats. Kruppa, Rich, Bellson, Roach.
    Loved Lars from Metallica growing up best. Dave Lombardo is amazing. Bonham, Watts, rhythm devils, whoever backed James Brown.

    My son got lessons from this guy, Ted McKenna, who was the drummer in The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. He lives about a mile-and-a-half away. Lovely guy. I picked this video because it also has Paul Rose in it, who is one of the best guitarists I have ever seen. I've seen him live a few times and I've seen other people who can do some of the things he does, but not everything he does!

    Here's another great drummer I like, Billy Cobham. I saw him live when I was in college back in '75.

    oh but there is, Dr Steve Gadd. When drummers speak of the top dog he's it and been it for many years.

    I know not that many people are fans of Dave Matthews, but man Carter Beauford's hands and feet are so fast and constantly very very busy. His style is so subtle and smooth, and his hi-hat work is just crazy. What amazes me the most is how much he is doing is not overpowering.

    This intro gives me chills, lightning fast hands!

    The thing that always amazed me about Bonham is that he did those patterns with a single kick pedal.

    Glide the Clyde would be a good name for a drummer.

    20 year old Michael Shrieve at Woodstock. When Santana burst onto the scene back then (I was 11 years old) for me it was the amazing driving percussion of all types that really caught my attention. This drumming in particular is a iconic early example to me.

    Why how did you guess?

    I'm practically world class on the steering wheel/dash kit. If I set the cruise control, I can get the double kick going!

    Lol. You guys convinced me to try playing drums more often than once or twice a month again. Now I know why I stopped playing in public, but man is it fun.

    I want field recorder quality drum videos from all drummers on this forum now.



    edit: annoyingly you can't even share your own videos if you set it to "private" when uploading to youtube...

    Just came across Thomas Lang, a drummer I'd not heard of before. Amazing.

    Lol! I tried to watch the vid but it wouldn't work, glad you got it fixed. Keep practicing and post another video after a while!

    I played religiously every day for about 10 years, up until I started college. I guess that I miss it a lot. A couple of years ago, improvising in different partitions of 7/8 would have been a breeze. I also had Popeye forearms. It was rad.

    Here's mine. I've been working on it all week since you posted yours. It's a little better quality than field recorder

    Looks like I've gotta spend the next 15 years playing exercises from Stone's Stick Control?!?!

    How did you get the camera to look so 80's and grainy?

    Maybe longer. How old are you? We don't learn as quickly and develop the muscle memory like when we were younger.

    As I said, better than field recorder, but not much. It's actually 90s grainy.

    I'm 23, so I figure in 15 years, I'll be 38 and maybe I can play something that sounds like a sucky-ass version of that. LOL!

    Actually, I need to break out Stick Control, 4-Way Coordination, and The Art of Bop Drumming again. Those books were fun!
