Favorite drummers


#1

Bill Buford, Neil Peart, Herb, Stewart Copland, Phil Collins


#2

You named them all :frowning: I especially like Neil Peart. Even though i probably spelled his name wrong. Basically anyone who makes the drums into an instrument and not just a tempo keeper.

Jimmy Chamberlin, Jimmy Chamberlin, and Jimmy Chamberlin. :smiley:

Nope you got it right.

I suppose people here don’t know of inferno from behemoth then. Or vitek from decapitated. He’s my favorite, even if he died in 2008 on my birthday, he’s a God for metal drummers. Inferno is as well, because he has a melodic speed, not a noisy speed.


#7

I also think Stewart Copeland is better than Neil, just due to the size of their sets and that Stewart is a better percussionist and is older. I am so happy I saw the police on their last tour years ago.

I haven’t got too into metal drummers, though I have a huge respect for the style of drumming. I was watching a richard christy (charred walls of the damned) studio video recently, pretty great. slipknot’s drummer is very talented though I’m not too into their music as a whole.

If you count Korn then David Silveria was excellent. Then of course terry bozzio is fantastic as well. Though I’m more familiar with his work with Zappa being I didn’t really follow Korn’s work much after 2005 or so, once their guitarist left.


#11

They are so different stylistically I’m not sure it’s possible to say one is better than the other.


#12

That’s true, But Seeing Copeland live for the last time with Sting and Andy made me happy, and he really is amazing. I love all sorts of Genres of rock/metal, so I can appreciate any kind of talent.


#13

Danny Carrey!!!


#14

Neil Pert all the way!


(JonasK) #15

Alex Acuña, Brian Blade, Antonio Sanchez and some Norwegian drummers. Stewart Copeland is also a great one.

Alan Wren of The Stone Roses and Andy Hurley from Fall Out Boy are the only answers coming to mind right now.
