Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing
My dad was the person ho inspired me to play in the beginning. He would listen to Led Zeppelin and Who records with me and point out how great Bonham and Moon were. Guys like AVH and Phil Rudd were some of my early musical influences. Motley Crue was my favorite band for years, mostly due to Tommy Lee, so he was a big early influence.
From that point on every drummer that I hear inspired me. I love the drums and I love to hear them played well. There are countless numbers of songs and bands that make me want to get behind the kit and play along. I have my favorites but the inspiration to play the drums comes from everywhere.
