Default Re: Why aren't there any Keith Moon type drummers today ?

I have to say I detest Mitch Mitchell and think he single-handedly ruined most of Hendrix's finest recordings.

Then I saw a video of him. And whilst I think he overplayed horribly, he was such a force of nature I started to see him differently. Maybe he was exactly what was needed at that time. A straight pro drummer would have made sure that Hendrix took the limelight and made sure Hendrix looked / sounded his best. Maybe Mitch just thought - I'm gonna take a risk and went for it.

Could you imagine having Moon in your band? It would be a nightmare. Total nightmare. As for drumming he had a unique style.

Bonham is revered but to watch him play is an education. He is all over the place and plays very inefficiently.

I'm speculating horribly but I'm guessing that none of these drummers were professionally taught. They look like they just started out with some basic ideas in their heads and went for it. They didn't worry about any form of convention they just followed their desires/sounds in their heads.

So we are only likely to find similar drummers these days from remote parts of the world with no internet access and no tuition. That's my view.

Right on the nose. The record company would probably scrape a Moonie-style drummer off on the studio doorframe these days. "We'll sign you for a three-record deal on one condition... replace your crazy drummer."

Well, I guess that's as good a reason to avoid professional teaching as I've ever heard!!

Glad to say I'm from a remote part of the world too.
