Phil Selway is an unshowy but fantastic drummer imho
youtube detected my interests and put this my way:
Now that's a proper diss!
For some reason we haven't had any Elvin Jones yet
it's true. at least u can cuss out ELP's pretensions and pomp. Can't even do that with Genesis. I also hate Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins.
I quite like Yes up to Relayer though
I like Steven Perkins's drumming, particularly on this. If it hadn't been for him and Eric Avery they would've been another bunch of nondescript skag happy 80s noodlers with rubbish lyrics.
Love the drumming on this:
Can’t have a drumming thread without...
Love this for the pure battering the shit out of the kit
Phil Taylor was an amazing drummer (Mikkey Dee’s great but Phil’s the king).
Like the drumming/percussion on 'Compared to What?'
Brendan Canty's drumming on this
OK so this is one of my favourite ''proper metal bands'' - Rotting Christ, from Greece .. been around since 1989 or so, still touring most weeks of the year 30 years later, and their drummer is .. well.
Give at least the first few mins a listen because at 3'22'', at 250bpm+, the whole thing stops on a penny for three stick clicks .. not the fastest or most technical (compared to some other metal drummers) but the sheer precision of the triplet-blasts and then the sudden stop and turnaround makes me smile every time.
Jim White of Dirty Three is probably my favourite drummer:
Have you heard the guy playing this on a dulcimer with Curt Smith (t4f) doing the vocals? It’s really lovely.
(The sound kicks in at 15 seconds)
This has got it all for me in the percussion quarter
Chap on the kit is the mutts nuts and the women on backing vocals and percussion are nailing it to the post.
I'm not a fan of The Police, but Stewart Copeland's drumming here is fantastic.
Plus, there's the added bonus of watching Sting lose his shit because fans are
gobbing at him !
was probably the other two in the band - seeing as they hated him. copeland in particular was a dab hand at flicking a big greeny off his sticks at the end of each clever little drum fill.
I remember seeing something where Copeland had drawn Sting's face on his snare drum skin so he could batter it with his sticks.
It was Fuck. Off. You. Cunt. On his toms.
I wish I'd been nicer to Sting: Stewart Copeland talks about life after The Police
I used to play in a band in the 90’s and we were a 3 piece. The bass player used to absolutely hate the lead vocalist/guitarist. The fire and the ice (i was the luke warm water). People in other bands used to call us The Police.
It seems the case in most bands I've been in/seen. Lead singers are, in general, dicks.
We split up over money before we'd made any. Didn't play on this cut but i've played it loads live.
