Default Danny Carey

I always loved the way Danny played drums as some others might as well, he is definitely a big influence/inspiration for me and a reason why I started playing, along with Neil Peart and Mike Portnoy, but Danny Carey is my favorite drummer. Anyway I always wondered where he got his style, sounds and technique from, since Tool is known for not sharing much about their work. But I have found videos that answered, something I found on the net. So here's a little treat for you guys.

3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSoyN...eature=related

4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsL9v...eature=related

Hope you enjoy, reply of what your thoughts are.

I love Danny Carey's playing style as well

He started out playing drums in his Middle School Jazz Band, where he became deeply in love with playing. He played all the way through high school, and then went to Louisiana State to study music (if im not mistaken...). I think he dropped out of college to move to LA because he was asked to be in a band, which later became Tool. My memory is a little fuzzy on that last part so sorry if I'm wrong.

He really does create his own style and technique though. Theres not many drummers that play and you can tell its specifically that drummer. Danny Carey is one of those drummers to me.

My favorite parts that Danny has are in Aenima, Lateralus, The Grudge, and Schism.
He really is an artist.

Thanks for bringing him up. I agree about Carey. He is one of the reasons I chose to play drums. I have always enjoyed the different sounds and textures he has used through the years. I also like the fact that he is not afraid to play songs with the snares turned off. Most drummers overlook the fact that snares can be disengaged and used for different parts of songs. He is certainly a different kind of "rock" drummer. One of my favorites.

This guy is probably my biggest inspiration, though I can't even come close to playing half as well as he can. His drumming at the end of The Grudge sends chills down my spine every time I hear it.

Thanks for the links - these are the most informative videos I've seen about Danny Carey.

I just ordered King Crimson 'Discipline'. Not easy to find!

He went to college for two years in Kansas to study percussion and got offered a drumming job with Pygmy Love Circus, also don't forget he was in Green Jelly/Jello.

Great drummer ... with a fantastic attitude ... as far as I can tell, anyhow. And I know if it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't own one of these...

I wonder how much of a difference with a kit made of melted paiste cymbals are compared to regular kits.

It's estimated to cost around $80,000.00 The same guy who built his kit built John Bonham's and Lenny White's.

Dear OP:

Thank you thank you thank you. I've never even looked for Tool stuff, let along Danny Carey stuff because I heard they NEVER do anything like this. Wicked.

I can believe it. I read/heard some where also that each kick weighs in around 80lbs! If this is true, I understand why he has techs. I wouldn't wanna haul all that around and set it up every night, or every other night, all around the world!

Danny Carey is by all means my favorite drummer. He is one of the few that I think can hold the attention of ANY style of drummer. Plus Tool is my favorite band, so it's kinda handy having my favorite drummer in the same group! :-)

Quite a lot, weight-wise!

Soundwise, it's "dark and light in one" apparently... bright and smooth tones.
