Best drummer ever

Recommended Posts

Buddy Rich for me. Speed, precision, timing, skill. A child prodigy at age 4. Unbelievable tekkers in today's lingo.

Also managed to play through a set whilst suffering a heart attack once.

 

But borrowed heavily from Gene Krupa. Then again, everybody did back in the day.

 

Whom are your favourites?

Pretty hard to top Buddy and Gene. That's the Mount Rushmore of drumming.

 

First drummer I heard as a teen growing up that made me want drums was Neil Peart of Rush.

 

Also loved Keith Moon. Great drummer and one of the best characters in Rock history.

In modern day terms, Mr Grohl has to be up there - His drumming on songs for the deaf was immense! 

 

Loved Keith Moon though - Ginger Baker and Mitch mitchell also well worthy of a mention

I used to like Sandy Nelson in my teens.

 

I don't know whether he was good or great.

Had a big hit with this.

Will never go down as a great by any stretch but I love the dummer in Bloc Party, Matt Tong. He was brilliant on Silent Alarm.

If anybody hasn't seen the BBC4 documentary on Ginger Baker it is well worth hunting down. What a character.

John Adams has sat in the top bleacher row for Cleveland Indians games since 1973.  That’s about 3500 games; he has only missed about 40.
