I just saw that. I stand corrected and I'm glad you agree.
Neil Peart, Niel Peart, and, uh... what's the other guy's name?
Oh yeah, Neil Peart.
Seriously though, I also dig:
I don't think Mr Hayward would be too happy if Bill Kreuzman & Mickey Hart were left out in the cold fella's !!!
PS Sam Clayton's the man for percussion !!!
Fred Below. As heard on hits by Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Rogers, Elmore James, Otis Rush, Junior Wells, Howlin' Wolf.........
Ooh. Bonham is the best, but Moon is my favorite drummer that almost everyone knows.
My real favorite is Rob Hirst of Midnight Oil.
For years I would have said Neil Peart and in many ways he might still be but over the past 10-15 years, I've enjoyed the hell out of Danny Carey.
Neil Peart and Nicko McBrain
Hey Rogue- I like telling the young folk to go to YOU tube and check these guys out, I doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, these dudes leave jaws on the ground!
I totally agree. He isn't a Baker/Bonham/Peart level drummer, but he was the perfect drummer for the Beatles. His playing was melodic in a way that complimented the bands' songwriting. I'd rather hear an average drummer (and Ringo was better than average) playing parts that work with the songs than a powerhouse crapping fills all over the place just because he can.
Brian Downey with Thin Lizzy is another great example- a plodding 4/4 metal drummer would have sunk that band, but Downey's jazzy playing worked perfectly for Phillo's songs.
And that brings us to Keith Moon. Moon would have been a disaster in Zeppelin or the Beatles, but there has never been another drummer on earth who could fill his shoes with The Who.
Besides Downey, John Maher and Grant Hart are two of my other favorite unsung drummers.
Elvin Jones, Mitch Mitchell, Max Roach, and Neil Peart.
Big Sid Catlett
Neil Peart, Alex Van Halen, Wil Calhoun, Keith Moon, Dave Weckl, and so many more, but the best I've ever seen is...
Lots of amazing drummers mentioned here…so instead of repeating, I'll add Jimmy Chamberlin.
What....no Gavin Harrison?
Dewey Martin (of Buffalo Springfield fame);
Mitch Mitchell (played with some ex Army guy from Seattle);
I'd like to name some others but I never got to see some of these guys live.
Honorable Mention to Charlie Watts, who IMO is the only bonafides musician in the band he's in.
Forgot the name but he played with MC5
Filthy Animal Taylor
Damon Wilson - The Temperance Movement - THEY ARE THE FUTURE
Steve Jordan for grooves
Keith Carlock for rippin'
Max Roach for dayuumm
Neil Pert isn't playing catch up any more, for a long time now.
I'd call him the best drummer in rock and roll, but too bad he doesn't have a band that features him more.
