Best Drummers ever?!


Recommended Posts

There was a similar post a year or so ago. Too tired to link you to it, but it listed a lot of the usual suspects.... Pert, Bonam, Tommy Lee, Vinny Paul, Jordison, etc. But if you ask many drummers from the 60's, 70's & 80's, most will tell you that Buddy Rich was a big influence on their drumming.

Yeah, Buddy Rich is one of the greatest. personally I am not too much into Phil :). though he is good.


Some of my favourites:


in rock:


I mostly like the functionality of drummers, not the solos actually. For me good drummers in rock: Alex van Halen, the guy from pantera, and this one:



Danny Carey (Tool):



But the one I really like (I did not think you will have listed this guy though Doc ;) ):


Ed Thigpen:

 Though this one is way faster than the slow jazz that he plays with Oscar Peterson (one of my favourite artists ever), I like the brush works even more in that type off music

Tony Royster, Thomas Pridgen, and Dennis Chambers, seriously some of the best drummers you will ever hear. Search them on Youtube, and thank me later.

I don't understand anything about drums, but talking about talent in general, I think that Japanese kid is amazing but when it comes to talent I guess it's like a road, some people start earlier to move along that path, some start later, but eventually after a certain number of years you stop improving. Many great musicians started when they were in their late teens.
