    Give the Drummer Some

    I'm a big lover of the big beat of rock 'n' roll music. While mowing my lawn and listening to my Nuggets collection, a song played in which I really got into the beat the drummer was putting down. It is "Why Do I Cry" by The Remains. I love their sound. Along with this song, here are a couple more where I really dug what the drummer was laying down. How 'bout you?


    The Remains - "Why Do I Cry"

    Can - Halleluhwah (I had to pick something from Can. This entire album, and any Can album, has great drumming)

    Jungle Brothers - Good Newz Comin' (not rock, but great rhythm)

    The Doors - Who Do You Love (cover; absolutely live album and other live shows)


    Mad Season - X-ray Mind (live at the moore show)


    Nirvana - Scentless Apprentice (In Utero; not complex, but went perfectly with the jagged/crashing guitar sound)


    Led Zeppelin - Bonzo's Montreaux (Coda; or is that cheating?)

    Carter Beauford of the Dave Mathews Band has been a favorite for a while now. Love the syncopation at the end of "Ants Marching", I just heard it on the radio before I came across this thread.

    Carl Palmer...."The Solo"....I'm not sure the word "amazing" is enough to describe this drum solo! MUST SEE (IMHO)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouJetiHNAv0

    **********************************************************************

    Roger Taylor...."Let There Be Drums"....a great live heavy rock version of an old classic.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq2i9iv5y_w

    **********************************************************************

    Neil Pert...."YYZ".........when you're surrounded by just about every kind of drum and cymbal - how can you miss?

    Listen to the audience sing along to a song without lyrics! - No, really!

    I think the least interesting instrument *in isolation* is drums.  By far.  But it's the most critical instrument to a band...it's the engine.  You can't have a good/great band without a good/great drummer.

    I prefer complementary drummers (Mick Avory (my favourite), Ringo Starr, Bruce Brand) to more muscular drummers like John Bonham, Animal from the Muppet Show and Animal's human avatar Keith Moon.

    I somewhat agree about drumming in isolastion, but I thought that my examples are a bt different from the usual muscular or showy drummers. I happen to like Keith Moon's Batman Theme/surf music approach to drumming. But I also like when the less showy drummer gets a chance to shine, especially when working with star performers who usually get the full spotlight. One of the reasons I love Hendrix's music so much is how Mitch Mitchell fills in so beautiufully in the spaces opened up by Hendrix unique guitar approach. Pete Thomas' opening drum sound on "Watching the Detectives" is what first got me hooked on Elvis Costello. Complementary drumming is fine too and probably overlooked. I realize there is the clichéd pantheon of great rock drummers, but in between those and the less ballyhooed complementary drummers there are many fine drummers who lay down a distinctive and different beat.

    DD, I was not implying your examples were of the "muscular" type I'm not a big fan of.  Surely you know I'm not one to hide his true feelings!  Or even able to.

    Thomas and Mitchell are good examples of complementary.  I know both of their (big) bands really well...wouldn't have suggested them as drummers I particularly rate...but now I can hear them both in my head.
