Default Re: Tommy Lee

Mediocre drummer?

I was just listening to the Dr. Feelgood album, Ok.

And - not only does Tommy incorporate some R&B inflected hi-hat openings on the down beat, but also on the upbeat within the context of a syncopated, funky bass drum pattern -- Meanwhile - this is with a heavy metal band. That's tasty.

And, he was doing a lot of syncopated fills on the cymbals.

Look - the guy is either overrated or underrated, just like Alex Van Halen. I'm not over-rating him, just saying he's a very good rock drummer.
