Your top five favourite drummers - any genre of music - just name followed by genre of music... - Page 2

post #16 of 36
Billy Cobham - jazz
Carl Palmer - rock (ELP)
Mitch Mitchell - rock (Hendrix Experience)
Ringo Starr - rock
Ian Paice - rock (Deep Purple)

Now I'm getting around to some of my other choices:

 

Rat Scabies - The Damned

 

A killer drummer that most people have ignored.

 

 

Charlie Watts - The Stones

 

Minimalist, but always on time. The glue that made the Stones survive. Who else can say that?

+1 and he's a very good jazz drummer as well.

 

As Jagger likes to say "Charlie's good night, ain't he?"

In no particular order except the last being my favorite:

Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Transatlantic and Neal Morse solo)
Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree and tours with King Crimson)
Neal Peart (Rush for technical precision)
Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard, Genesis, Fates Warning and Big Big Train)
Bill Bruford (the man played for the holy trinity of classic prog rock Yes, King Crimson and toured with Genesis in 1975 (take a listen to the live version of "Cinema Show" off the Live Box album).

Gavin Harrison (jazz/rock)

Neil Peart (rock)

Billy Cobham (jazz/fusion

Bill Bruford (prog rock)

Joey Baron (jazz)

 

A video of Joey Baron. I think the studio version off of the album Mostly Coltrane is better, but this is still quite good:

Yes he truly is amazing and he is part of a long tradition of first rate drummers hailing from The Big Easy (aka New Orleans). He definitely does not get the respect he so richly deserves.
