The lights are on
You like Godspeed You Black Emperor, but we prefer Mozart. It doesn't matter because here we all dance to the same tune. Let's all hang out and we can make beautiful music together.
1. John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
2. Neil Peart (Rush)
3. Stewart Copeland (The Police, and Spyro the Dragon soundtrack)
4. Levon Helm
5. Chad Smith
Unlike heavy metal band drummer (Travis Barker, The Rev, Joey Jordinson, etc.) these guys have more than speed, they got rhythm, chops, and keep tempo like a boss.
Out of curiosity does anyone here actually play drums? I know I do.
1: John Bonham
2: Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana)
3: Stewart Copeland
4: Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes
5: Tre Cool (Green Day)
Also former MCR drummer Bob Bryer is pretty great, so is Travis Barker
Only because no one else has added him (which is astounding, as he is often considered the greatest drummer of all time and no thread like this on a drumming forum goes more than 2 posts without him), Buddy Rich.
Anyone who said Travis Barker because he was fast or whatever, check out Buddy Rich, he blows Travis out of the water, not to mention plays a mean jazz.
josh freese man.
Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy)
George Hurley (Minutemen)
Danny Carey (Tool)
Stewart Copeland (The Police)
Dave Culross (multiple death metal bands)
Oh yeah, Dave Grohl too:)
