    Big fan of the late Vinnie Paul, this piece from the ending of 'Becoming' by Pantera is my all time fave...

    ...and Clive Deamer is basically god.

    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    I can't choose a song but the drumming on this album is rock solid.

  4. Sprocket.

    Sprocket. Rollin, rollin...

    Some of the best drumming heard on a Northern Soul tune IMO.
  5. Favelado

    Favelado Half to the Tower, please.

    Wouldn't be tempted to go for Perfect Kiss? Similar vibes. Missing the shorts though.

    Steve Gadd (50 ways to leave your lover) on his first job with them. Especially from 4:40 him drumming behind Wayne Shorter on Tenor Sax.

    As a drummer I have loads of favourite drumming on songs. And I like metal, so where to start?

    Something everyone probably knows, this simple beat is deceptively hard to play, and bouncy as fk...

    More later, sure :thumbs:

    This always struck me as a pain in the arse for the drummer to play. Can any drummers confirm or deny ...

    Pretty much the whole of the Grant Green album Alive! For me, probably as much to do with the recording/sound as the playing.

    Reni was a great drummer.

    Not their best song by any means, but this came to mind. Elephant Stone, She Bangs The Drums (appropriately),and Standing Here are amongst others of theirs where he puts in a good shift.

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    I don't think there's anything particularly fancy going on here, but I've always like the live version of There There by Radiohead which he usually plays on.

    I missed that when I scanned the thread. Elephant Stone is a great choice. Produced by Hooky that single.

    Can't overstate the importance of this one :)

    ETA: Non-ravers, if unfamiliar still, it's the most sampled drum break ever, by miles, usually in old school hardcore, d'n'b, jungle etc but it pops up in every genre of dance music:

    Wiki: can probably add a zero to that number tbh

    Oh yeah, Danny Carey from Tool as well. I still can’t work out how to play the drum line from Sober. I suspect it’s like playing Smells Like Teen Spirit. A piece of piss if the high hat is played wrong, harder if it’s played right. Only I just can’t get Sober to click in my head at all (Teen Spirit I did get after a while, I still remember where I was when it clicked). I’ve watched YouTube videos for how to play Sober and all sorts, still can’t do it.

    Not my cup of tea but Topper played brilliantly on ‘Look Here’

    Slightly off topic, but watching this cute-as-a-button 8 year old Japanese girl smashing the shit out of her drumkit is a real joy

    yeah - good call - kind of makes the track, gives it a swing and bounce that wouldn't be there with a straight kick and snare combo.
