Default Re: The Drummer's Gene

Phil Rudd plays LOUD.
Phil Rudd doesn't need to hit the drums loud anyway, the studio techs just mix and adjust the volume...

...Phil is very good with dynamics too...but that drummer was awesome, solid, groovey, not too complex, dynamically aware and concentrating with just enough nuance to not be called a drum machine...

...playing loudly really limits your dynamic range, playing moderately gives a drummer room to use a range of different dynamics (louder and softer with more sensitivity etc.) and helps the studio engy with less unwanted overtones resulting from dented pinstripes.
Check out some of my drumming on my youtube channel:
