Steve Gadd on “50 ways…” for me :slight_smile:


#2034

Still hard to believe The Ronettes were whih’e!
I hear that Trump is trying to buy the Wall of Sound…
Rip PS. His daughter is a class singer-songwriter


#2035

Indeed, brilliant


#2036

Would probably go with the drumming on Elvis Presley’s live version of Suspicious Minds.


#2037

Ah here. I’ll see your Elvis drumming and try to raise you Ringo on “Rain”


#2038

I mindful of the infamous John Lennon quote re Ringo. But each to their own on it.

Some great drummers around at the moment, the guys from The Arctic Monkeys and The National spring to mind.


#2039

Yeh there’s loads. Motown and Stax had a couple of doosies. Arctic Mooonkeeeys guy is brilliant. Stevie Wonder would probably nominate his drummer…


#2040

Ian Paice of Deep Purple. Really fast and doesn’t bash the cymbals too much.


#2041

The guy from The Band and the guy Van Morrison used in the 70s are another two.


#2042

The guy from the band - Levon Helm. A great singer and all round musician.


#2043

Good call lads. Many people said Keef Moon was the greatest…


#2044

Good drumming here…


#2045

Max Weinberg from the E-Street band. Simple small drum kit. Some of the heavy metallers drums needed about 6 trucks to contain them.


#2046

Or Genesis with their two drummers.

Oasis had a good drummer.

And The Roses. One of the best.


#2047

Mel Gaynor of Simple Minds.


#2048

Drummers, Neal Peart from Rush is a genius but the man they all credit as the greatest was Jazz drummer Buddy Rich

But special mention for this guy


#2049

There’s a great documentary on Sky Arts called The Art of Drumming.
The general consensus seems to be that Moon is great to watch but his timing is all over the shop.

Ginger Baker is the greatest / maddest rock drummer imo.


#2050

Reni, great shout. And Animal of course


#2051

Some drummers are unstructured in that they don’t play patterns but still keep time, like the REM drummer for example. Moon seemed all over the shop, which was probably his appeal back then. Ringo Starr talked about how he himself would hit the back or front of the beat, giving the impression of being out of time but really complimenting McCartney’s bass. Saw a clip of Ringo in discussion with George Martin and how Ringo always felt Martin wanted to replace him. Left him very insecure.

Baker was amazing, and also a complete spacer/ total arsehole. Cream were some band.


#2052

No mention for the guy from Bros…??
