Does anyone have a favorite drummer?
Hard to beat Keith Moon.
Danny Carey, or Billy Cobham
Steve Gadd has been a favorite for me for a while, but John Bonham and Keith Moon are the two guys that make me want to play drums.
It takes 8 replies before someone mentions John Bonham?!
I saw Tommy Lee do the forward tilt up drum solo on the Theater of Pain Tour; before he went upside down. ;?
Ian Paice (Deep Purple).
Listen to "Fireball" some time - that's ONE kick drum with ONE pedal.
Never has anyone with less drums done more.
Carter Beauford. He makes most others look like amateurs.
He's probably the best drummer in rock now, but Dennis Chambers is to CB as CB is to everyone else. CB is a lower-case Dennis Chambers.
Dave Weckl is always amazing too.
In the pop world, I always liked Clem Burke and Stewart Copeland.
IMO, the BEST DRUMMERS OF ALL TIME are, in no order:
All have amazing chops, and know when to show off and when to be tasteful and how to best serve the music. Neil Peart gets half a mention, but he's into musical *********ion a bit much to be on my list. Mike Portnoy is right out.
<editted because I somehow forgot stewart Copeland! I am ashamed of myself!>
No mention of:
You read it right...but, as I said, IMO. These are the guys who's work I am inspired by...just me.
Ok, fine -- I keyed off the fact you wrote "best" rather than "favorite." Purportedly objective "best" lists are hard to put together.
Terry Bozzio with Zappa kicked hard. I was always a Mickey Hart fan.
Ditto on Bozzio, he's a bad ass. But I never was impressed with the Dead's drummers though.
