Animal, from The Muppet Show. Best ever, no question. Without hands, even.

John Taylor is the total package. Writes, sings and plays the kit damn well:



Mind you, it doesn't hurt when you had Freddie and Brian backing you up.

I can't say this guy is in the same techincal league as any of the drummers put forth thus far, but he was different at the time - some called him the human drum machine then, lol...I know the real drummers here are going to kill this, but up it goes...



I like the Moe Tucker influenced beats...

I've been inspired by many drummers over the years: Neil Peart, Stewart Copeland, Bill Bruford, of course Buddy Rich....

...but my current favourite is Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree.

Damn it Yamaha you make an ok kit but your snares sound like garbage. Decent drummer for her age though.

Speaking of young drummers....

I like your choices.
Including your current choice of Gavin Harrison.
He's one of the most efficient drummers I've ever seen.

If I may add another example.

I like your choice of the word "efficient" in describing Gavin Harrison. Everything he does looks so effortless and smooth. I saw PT in Seattle a couple of years ago; and the audience went crazy, gave a standing ovation, after Anesthetize.

I just heard he'll be giving a clinic in Vancouver (not too far from me) in late October...I hope I can get in to see it.

Carter Beauford from DMB rocks my boat. It's hard to say which is the best drummer, but this guy is just my favorite. I just love his syncopated rhythm and his hi-hat approach.

Hey there.

I can't believe that no one has put Neil Peart from Rush up here yet.

This guy defines drums, timing and percussion and has been doing it for 30 + years.

I think that no list would be complete without his inclusion.

SeeYa!@!!


yep.. my choice as well.. that man rocks on the skins..as well all the rest of his "percussiony"toys.

a clip from dave letterman earlier this month



So glad to see you mentioned him as well..


(and hes still rocks for an old dude.. have to say I love Rush as well.. have for a few decades now )



Neil also wrote most of the great lyrics for their tunes.. so that makes him an even greater drummer

I'll see your human drum machine & raise you a God-like human drum machine.

The style of music that he plays may not be everyone's cup of tea but I don't think anyone can deny the amount of talent that it requires.

ok..I feel humbled by my choice of Neil Peart..

There are obviously many great drummers out there..that Damien Shmitt is awesome, as is Bill Bruford..and Flo Mounier.

Enjoyed them all..

I like your taste in drummers
...and music

I still pick Neil as my fav though.. he is awesome.. in my opinion.

I love drummers who can actually play jungle. It is right up there with metal and the freakiest jazz in terms of speed, accuracy and power.



I read an interview with Flo Mounier where he talks about having to do exercise to be able to play like he does. The drumming we see in this day and age is almost as much a sport as music. These guys have full separation between all four limbs, can roll and blast faster than some early machine guns could fire and play hour long sets doing so. That one solo vid I posted above of Flo actually goes on for 17 minutes. Lets see those preening fou fou guitarists do that.

See, I get tired playing St Anger on drums but then again, I'm not actually a drummer, I'm a guitarist so huge difference there.

Massive respect to those that can though.
