Mick Tucker could outplay all those guys one handed, talk about style
Ginger Baker cleared the path for many afterwards - RIP
Keith Moon of the who since someone beat me to John from Zeppelin He was one crazy dude .
Probably Gene Krupa.
Keith Moon, which I'm surprised to see it took this long to get his name out there.
I do think I prefer his fills.
They say Chick Webb was the only guy to shut down Krupa in a cutting contest.
My favorite drummer is Peter Erskine.
Hal Blaine. He could play anything. He played everything.
Frank Beard. 50 years of solid driving rhythms behind whatever insanity Billy Gibbons is playing.
Paul T. Riddle.
I learned of him in Porcupine Tree. He's now one of the drummers in King Crimson and is officially in Pineapple Theif.
He has a very distinctive style. He and Neal Peart were the only drummers that had me playing air drums at a concert.
He was the greatest Oberheim DMX drum machine to ever pretend to be human.
This man.. Anton Fig.. timing and groove in spadefuls..
Oh.. and I'll add this if you want to see Mr Bonamassa on a Strat backed by Mr Fig on drums, + a few other highly talented individuals..
Bun E. Carlos
Even at 100 years old, his meter is impeccable.
When Tinted Windows was recording this album, they were telling their then drummer "Play it like Bun E would, or at least with his drive".
The producer said he knew Bun E personally and gave him a call. Bun said it sounded like fun.
They asked how many days rehearsal he needed with the band, he said "None. Just send me the tracks and I'll listen en route."
Needless to say, he delivered the goods:
As a reformed drummer I have a lot of favorites. My first real idol was Frank Beard of ZZ Top. His grooves are so blasted good. For the technical stuff Buddy Rich is unmatched. Neal Peart is a one of a kind drummer that shaped rock drumming and gave all of us freedom to expand what was possible. Carmine Appice was bigger than life when I managed to score a ticket to a drum clinic he hosted in Dallas in 1977. That was an eye opener for sure.
Not going to lie though. Right now, Danny Carey of Tool has set a standard for polyrhythmic grooves that is beyond great. His drumming is so on point and original at 58 that other rock drummers are sort of mumbling among themselves.
anybody know this guy
and here he is with joe satrini...lol
