Title: Aren't some of you guys drummers?
Post by: gmac on August 04, 2011, 07:02:21 PM
I remember a discussion a while aback about the relative merits of drummers versus the rest of society.  Depending on your point of view, this video will prove you right - regardless of which side you may be on...

I'm a drummer.  I play metal, mostly black/death metal with double bass and blast beats and all that.  I've seen that video you posted before, that guy is pretty crazy.

He has a "Flock of Seagulls" worthy comb over that's for sure.   ;)

I think someone didn't get enough love from mommy as a child. :)

I always wish I could play like this guy.

Stanton Moore (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAJtmDQBvF8) I mean seriously.. so much more complexity than what ADHD man is playing and yet smooth as all get out.

I'm sorry.. thats just plain gay... no reason to act like a jackass behind the kit... I can't stand drummers who do crap like that and also the ones that stand up... Poison comes to mind...

Stanton has a great style and thats a pretty interesting set up he has... check out Jack DeJohnette too.

I'm going to go with Neil Peart on this one.  I'm not a drummer, but I think he's awesome.

Depends on the genre of music as to the drummer I like. Rock drummers are John Bonham, Niel Peart, Keith Moon.

Jazz guys like Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones, Max Roach or Jack Dejohnette are or were all phenominal drummers.

Title: Re: Aren't some of you guys drummers?
Post by: nicneufeld on August 05, 2011, 02:28:42 PM
The three greats of more traditional "rock" for me are Bonham, Moon, and Ginger Baker.  Baker was I think the most quirky and interesting in his playing, with so much jazz background, and Bonham had I think the most power (but, let's face it, Led Zeppelin was darker and heavier overall).

Prog drummers, Bill Bruford...I've not listened to much after Close to the Edge, but his work with Yes was clever.  Alan White has done quite well in his absence since though.

However, the drum solos I'd prefer to listen to today would be recordings by Alla Rakha, Shankar Ghosh, Chatur Lal, Zakir Hussain, etc.  There is so much subtlety in their playing.

Edit:  I should say, I remember that video and that guy is awesome in a very hideous, horrible way.

You win.  Keith Moon ROCKED.  Not the greatest technique, a little tense, but he f*cking ROCKED.  He's not using a hi-hat in that video, wonder if he always had a setup like that.

These days, I'm into Mike Mangini.  He played with Steve Vai and is now with Dream Theater.  He's breathing new life into that band.

Back in University, they made the science students take two "Arts" credits.  One of mine was "History of Jazz".  Possibly the best class I ever took.   Loved it and this was part of the curriculum.  Loved the fact that in a song called "Sing, Sing, Sing" there was no singing.  But, I'm not sure that this is labelled correctly.  This is what I remember as Benny Goodman's version (with Gene Krupa on drums)

Sorry . . BUT

Before Phil Collins went all sappy in the 90's he was one of the BEST drummers in the world.

Just one example of his work with Fusion Jazz Band Brand X from the late 70's . . . (it is necessary to listen to the whole thing to get a flavor of what the boy was cable of doing)

I'm a huge Rush fan, so most drummers don't impress me, but I'm surprised no one mentioned Bill Bruford from Yes, definitely one of the best out there and also a Hall of Fame member.

Well, that's a shame.  Neil Peart is good, but there are countless other amazing drummers out there as well.  If you think there's no one better than Neil, you are surely not looking very far for other great drummers.

This is one of Zakir Hussain's more unique tricks:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNMS3O3xDFc

Listen as he alters the pitch of the bayan (bass drum) to mimic the melody lines of the flute.  It is absolutely sick that he can do that so well. 

And if you prefer tabla with a side of more Western fare:

Saw the trio above last spring, phenomenal stuff.

I guess the duty  falls to me to spread a bit of love for the late Barrie (B.J.) Wilson, the seriously inventive, unpredictable, and criminally underrated drummer for the great British band, Procol Harum  (B.J. was, in fact, Jimmy Page's first choice for drummer  when Led Zeppelin was being formed) . 

Procol Harum of course  is still touring and making new music that's as good as anything from their classic period...and  members have come and gone while still maintaining their authentic classic sound (though the lineup has been mostly stable for the last 15 or 20 years)  but until very recently, it's always been the drum seat that's been hard to fill adequately since BJ's passing in 1990 .   BJ was not a conventional rock drummer, and brought a definite richness to their sound.

I find it very interesting that so many fans and other musically savvy folks considered BJ to be the heart and soul of this band's sound.  Having seen the band live quite a few times "back in the day", I do have to agree.  These days when the band performs the classic "A SALTY DOG",  leader Gary Brooker still dedicates it to BJ.

more on B.J. here:

I saw Procol Harum in concert at the Kennedy Center in D.C. in 1972.  They were great!  (yep, the Kennedy Center).
I saw Deep Purple there too a few weeks later.

Wow... the video in the original post totally looks like it should have been a Chris Farley sketch. As far as drummers go, I can't argue with any of the names mentioned up to this point. My personal favorites are Raymond Herrera from Fear Factory who is just a machine of brutality. My other fave is Tomas Haake from Meshuggah. No human should be able to keep time with those insane syncopated tempos.
