I'm a big fan of drummers, and in music its one of things i can pick out well. now i am listening to robert plant "in the mood for a melody" excellent hi hat work there, i also like phil collins in "dance with the volacano" on seconds out. also any other jean luc ponty songs. also anything he did with brand X. stu copeland does great work on the INS in question. whats your favorite piece of drumming? i love guitar but there isnt anything that sounds better than a well placed drum beat.
Anything with Neil Peart for me.
"Burn" by Deep Purple
sort of a litmus test for any band, especially the drumming
I'm a drummer (kind of). Know what you mean A-man.
There's some nice hi-hat in Smile Like You Mean It by The Killers.
Moby Dick is mental jimbo! When The Levee Breaks is great too.
Loz Colbert (Ride) could smash his kit about proper.
I love Mitch Mitchell. He was a groovy cat.
I'm everywhere you've never been and better than I've ever been
I love Jon Hiseman (Colosseum) on 'The Time Machine'.
phil collins did some excellent stuff with eno aqua, ever heard?
some of my faves...
"...ever wonder why they kill the weak ones, baby?"
i dont think i have. i have a nice album with eno and david byrn, something about ghosts. love that one.
yeah, that's great, "my life in the bush of ghosts". collins is on "another green world" for the whole thing and scattered around all eno's albums around that period.

called yoshido tatsuya, plays with a bass and drums duo called 'ruins'.

'Charlie's good tonight, inhee?!'
Check out the drum intro on Elvis Costello's 'I Don't Want To Go To (Chelsea)'. It simply kicks butt period!
For insane Hi Hat - Tony Allen!
Tony Allen is the Nigerian-born drummer, composer and songwriter who, along with Fela Kuti, pioneered afrobeat music, a new blend of jazz and traditional African juju and highlife, in the mid-1960s.
He is now in a band with the guy from Blur.
