I dont really have a worst drummer, if i did it have to be the coldplay drummer for the most boring beats ever.

Tim Powles -- he gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek and said "thank you for being such a big supported of the band.' That will do it for me.

Colin Brooks -- he was great fun to watch play. It was apparent he was having a blast up there. I couldn't take my eyes off him.

Other than those two I have to say I don't pay all that much attention to drummers.

1. HELLHAMMER! Jan Axel Blomberg is the fucking god of drums. I don't think there is any competition. Just listen to Arcturus's The Sham Mirrors and get back to me. And with a name like Hellhammer, how can you go wrong?
2. Mike Portnoy! Also the god of drums. The man owns. So on second thoughts, Hellhammer does have competition.
3. Sean Reinert. I present Exhibit A: Cynic's Focus. That is how you play, folks.
4. Gavin Harrison. Impeccable timing and placement, great ear for music.

Least favourite:
Larry Mullen. Just fuck off. Hasn't played anything decent since God Part II and is dead weight in U2 nowadays.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth. The man is tight.
Larry Mullen has declined a lot. At his best, though, his beats aren't hard, but his arrangements and dynamics and creativity are quite good. Same with Nick Mason.
Tool and Smashing Pumpkins drummers are nice.

Anyone remember when Larry's drumpart for a song actually had 8 or 9 changes? I think we're down to 1 now...

the drummers I like aren't necessarily virtuosos. I'm not interested in ten minute drum solos. my favourite drummers are able to make memorable beats. Beats that get stuck in your head and really make a song. That's why i like a lot of hip-hop/rap too, even if the lyrics suck.

Larry Mullen Jr.

Early 80's stuff is possibly his best, along with Pop.

Matt Tong

currently my favourite drummer. Pioneers FTW! The Prayer, Hero, Tulips, Rhododendrons, Where is Home?, Sunday, Hunting for Witches, Banquet...

Mitch Mitchell

It's quite a feat to be noticable when you're playing drums for Jimi Hendrix.

Jack Irons gets no love here, but I think he's great.

Peart. Only drummer I ever really focus on when seeing the band live.





Drummer from Catherine Wheel.

It's hard to notice bad drumming, but I found the drumming for Counting Crows to be pretty weak - especially on their first album.

Collective Soul had noticeably generic drumming I thought.
