Re: JERRY GASKILL!
With only 500 drummers featured from all of the genres and groups from around the world, over the last 80-90 years or so, it's not possible to get everyone in. It wasn't long ago that 500 would have been a very ambitious number, but it's true, a lot of great groups and great drummers keep emerging as time goes on, and certainly there are more than 500 worth noting.
It's completely a Bernhard call as to whether some names should be rotated out and replaced by others. I'd hate to have to choose, I think that just about every name is there deservedly so. Maybe a top-600 drummers is in order soon?
BTW, I'm very proud to have been included on that list, more for my tenacity/longevity in the business than my drumming perhaps, but I'll take it!
