Kris Myers
maybe i'm overlooking a thread on this guy...

but, he is amazing. check him out. he plays for umphrey's mcgee, a very proficient jam band with a funkier edge.

Re: Kris Myers
oh man, I hope I'm overlooking a thread too cuz Kris needs way more attention than is shown here and his own page here on DW.

Tasty highhat work, insane odd-time grooves, intricate double bass, solid pocket,.......

If only I had a Masters in Jazz drumming too

p.s. for those of u turned off by jam bands cuz of the hippies, etc.. umphrey's does the heaviest, metalish "jamming"
fo those turned off cuz of jam bands simplicity, they also do some of the jazziest, most free-formed and technical

summed up: they mix it up and its music for musicians
but that's just my thoughts

Re: Kris Myers

yeah, but unfortunately that prejudice will keep people from hearing great bands in all sorts of genres, bc unique talent is often summed up by something as one-dimensional as a genre classification

Re: Kris Myers
I've really been into Umphrey's McGee lately, and I love his style and sound. His drums sound fantastic as well as his playing being incredibly musical.

Re: Kris Myers

Re: Kris Myers
i'm definitely a HUGE fan. jam band turns people off, i would say they're fusion around here to get more interest.

myers plays with a ton of dynamics, even within his grooves. huge fan of the total UM package.

Re: Kris Myers
Kris is such a great and influential drummer. I've been into Umphrey's for a few years. Kris's playing has really influenced me. I also like the style of Brann Dailor. My two favoite drummers out there. I love Umphrey's and Mastodon much.

Re: Kris Myers
Yeah, Kris has been my biggest influence since I began playing drums. His licks, jazzy style, and intricate nature will wow any drummer... or music listener for that matter. Just check out his 2 rounds of fills in 'Robot World' on the Anchor Drops album of 2004, just months after he joined Umphrey's McGee. Also, any track on Mantis is sure to melt some face. The guy just deserves more credit. Raw jazz influenced progressive power...

Re: Kris Myers

I'm glad to see the Kris support. He has been the most influential drummer for me over the years and he deserves a spot on here - especially with the videos and interviews available.

Re: Kris Myers
Somehow I just found out about Umphrey's Mcgee and the drummer is blowing me away.
