Taking those things seriously is the road to MADNESS!That's a very good way to look at it - point taken.
Damned if I can rank them - this one had more influence, that one sold more records, this one has more groove, that one more feel, this one is more of master of the instrument, that one's more flashy and dynamic, this one more musical, that one more versatile, this one more creative, that one has such a great sound, etc etc etcI hear ya. Although it'd damn near kill him to have to place Bonham at number two.
I agree ... and most of the drummers on that list (and the one who are not on it) wouldn't give a monkey about the "ranking", it's not a formula one racing contestNot so easy to judge things from the top of the hill when you're at the bottom either ... not that that stops people from pretending they can ...
They may not have a monkey to give - not everyone doesI agree ... and most of the drummers on that list (and the one who are not on it) wouldn't give a monkey about the "ranking", it's not a formula one racing contest
Keep A Knockin' by Little Richard.Only last year I found out that he based has famous intro to Rock and Roll on Johnny B Goode - it's just the guitar riff on drums.
Interesting, I didn't know thatThing is, for example ... most of us probably love Bonzo's playing. But he no doubt had tons of ideas we know nothing about - at least I don't. Only last year I found out that he based has famous intro to Rock and Roll on Johnny B Goode - it's just the guitar riff on drums. There's a lot we "down here" don't know.
Yeah yeah Little Richard ... I have a bad brain. Ta for correcting.Keep A Knockin' by Little Richard.
As for the monkey. Wacko Jacko doesn't need his anymore, so there's at least one spare floating around.
And yes Pol......even Meg!!
three generations of that intro:Interesting, I didn't know that
What's more, some of these drummers listed have also influenced each others as well as influencing thousands of non-pro drummers.
