Default Re: Phil Rudd

Phil Rudd rocks! The way he can play that steady beat & drive the song with such confidence & power puts him in a class with few others. Doug Clifford from CCR belongs in that class, too, along with Les Warner from the Cult. The Cult supposedly fired one drummer because he dared to play a fill!

Anyway, it's not my style. I used to try to play like Moon or Mitchell, but I've settled into a more Joey Kramer-type style. If I tried to play for AC/DC I'd go crazy. I've gotta fill, but I love Phil Rudd's sound & sense of time, & yes, he's got soul (or magic or whatever)!
