Best Drummer? - Page 5

post #61 of 80
There are so many great drummers...I think you have to give the nod to Buddy as he just has the whole package.

I'm a huge Neal Peart fan, and he's one of the best, but as great as Neal is he's not a jazz cat at heart. He can't even perform a big band tune without running into his concert drum solo!

Why do youngsters insist on making lists of the best, the worst etc?
This tendency, it depresses one.

Ginger Baker for introducing two bass drums
Mike Portnoy has yet to be mentioned...

And my favorite, due to his amazing skill and ability to stretch over many types of music and styles:
Danny Carrey.
His drum tracks always sound so simple on the first listen, but relisten on nice headphones or a nice system, and you'll notice all of the subtle work he does. "Vicarious" has a couple extra dimentions due to tricks like ghost notes.

It's a simplistic way of assessing things, true, but"”so long as you read the lists rather than just writing them"”it's an efficient way to acquire references for good things you may have missed.

QOTSA live simply doesn't sound the same without him on the skins.

I was afraid to say this

I think Carter Beauford is one of the few drummers who plays well even when he isn't playing a drum solo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwAnCvoapfg
