Aren't some of you guys drummers?
« on: August 04, 2011, 12:02:21 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.

I was so into the jackets that I forgot to look at the drummer!

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 I mean seriously.. so much more complexity than what ADHD man is playing and yet smooth as all get out.

Best part is that even with all that flailing, he doesn't miss a beat.

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 like your first word better.  Not sure it's in the dictionary but it was very descriptive.

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

I'm an aspiring drummer. IMHO, there is none better then Neil Pert. Joey Jordan is a close second.

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.

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.
