Re: Is Buddy Rich REALLY the greatest drummer of all time?

I agree with 8-Mile. Buddy either had the fastest single stroke snare roll or had a way of making the roll sound faster than any other I've heard except maybe Mike Mangini.

Just an observation,...

Re: Holding the band together

In my experience, drummers are expected to be an active part of the musical conversation in jazz, fusion, prog, metal and psychedelic rock. In most other styles, especially those dominated by vocals,...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Ideally, when crashes happen they are more of a buzz than an irritant.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Thanks Jeremy for saying it for me.

I think overdone compression makes music sound ugly.

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Variety in live music has reduced dramatically where I live in Sydney, with only a fraction of the big live venues that were there in the 70s and 80s. This is largely due to gaming machines, laws...

Re: Minimalist - Not interested in new gear?

Yep, I pick and stick pretty well forever. I also keep heads and sticks as long as possible, although I like the mellowness of great that's been worn in.

Re: What are your bass player priorities / red flags?

I most dislike playing with loud rushing dominant bassists. It's stressful lol

Things like enjoyable tone and volume and the ability to lock in and hold it together are things you'd hope for from...

Re: Do people buy DW kits just for the badge

Often young players look at what the top players are using and figure they can't go wrong with that.

Re: I love playing drums at bars.

I loved playing bars in the 70s and 80s when you could draw an enthusiastic crowd with original non-metal music.

Home recording is much more rewarding for me now - I can play the music that I...

Re: Sir Ringo Starr...

It's probably about 45 years late, which shows just how hard it is for a rock drummer to be knighted! Don't get your hopes up, kids.

Re: Do you necessarily like to play the drums to the music you like?

I love prog and fusion and most of it is well beyond me. My tastes are nerdier than my technique.

I've played tons of music in bands that I'd never willingly listen to for pleasure. Still, playing...

Re: Being impressed vs being moved

Rhythmic drums were once discouraged because they were believed to be primitive and brought the animal out in people.

I've seen this before. He reminds me of a less good version of Kwon Soon-Keun, aka "Korean Drummer Steals The Show" - just a crazy guy without much taste but tons of enthusiasm :)
