1. John Bonham ( holy)
2. Keith Moon ( if I didnt know bonzo he d be the first )
3. Carl Palmer ( made me realize you dont have to play it like rhtyms all the time )
4. Ginger Baker ( cant figure out his magic but sounds utterly unique )
5. Bill Bruford ( he is a very good drummer, straightforward )
6. Buddy Rich (when I started jazz drumming my teacher gave it to me and I understood I d never be a jazz drummer :sob: )
7. Billy Cobham (spectrum :crazy: )
8. Stewart Copeland (very fresh and original always, though I dont like his bands music at all)
9. Mitch Mitchell (love the energy he gives definetly a drummer for Jimi and thats enough)
10. Phil Collins (his early genesis drumming always blew me away)

Hmm, strange then that I found this quote in a paper on acoustics.
Guess the author must have gotten it wrong :Wink3:

(or being felt as vibration - a very overrated area of perception unless one is deaf - like the percussionist Evelyn Gleny),

Quite easily I'd imagine.

If you close your eyes, he's the guy building a shed behind the other musicians on stage.

At least that's what it always sounds like to me.

I suspect that when you've spend 15 years where your day job involves miking up the bastard things, you learn how well-engineered drums should sound.

...And Justice For All? You're having a laugh, m8. Sounds great when you're 15 (double kick drums? WOW!), but listen closely and you'll notice his timing's all over the place - added to that the drum production on that album is so lousy that he suffers from the Collins 'building a shed' syndrome right the way through it.

Don't know much about drummers, (of the age that my mind was mainley polluted by tr808,909 rather than Real drummers)

but Chad Smith is really Good. Solid is a well chosen word! :Wink3:
