I think Audioslave is a great band. I do however, think RATM was better than Audioslave. He seems alot more open with Rage then with Audioslave (first 2 albums), although what he played suited the music very well, but stuff like Testify, Vietnow, Bulls on Parade is just kick ass!!

Can somebody be so kind and tell me the measurements and brand of his snare drum in the RATM era. I know he used a 14x7 on the first two Audioslave records and a 14x6.5 on Revelations. I just watched the RATM dvd The Battle Of Mexico City and fell in love with his snare drum.

One of the most modern examples of what you can do with just a kick, a snare, set of hats and a few cymbals. First album hit in 1992, holds up really well still. Lyrically, well, I grew up in the era of the anti-Viet Nam War, socio-political-protest vibe 60's and 70's, so honestly, it's all been said before. No denying these guys are all monster musicians.

Just discovering Audioslave and WOW!! what a rock solid drummer Mr Wilk is!! Although I saw some gossip that the singer has left the band, hope they continue but I think Brad will get another gig without too much hassle!!

I think that Chris Cornell has left Audioslave and the rest of the band are gonna play again with Zack De La Rocha as Rage Against The Machine.

Hey guys I'm new to this forum.

I have been hoping to talk with people like you guys for a very long time - drummers who appreciate Brad Wilk. Finally!

I love how he has always had great sounding drums and drum production.

I think that to play as straight as he does (i.e few fills) knowing that he does have chops makes him great. Genius


Cheers

Brad Wilk is my favorite drummer. Some peeps say he is too simple. That is part of his strength. He lays down hard hitting undeniable grooves. No need for any frills or showoff moves to get his point across. This sort of power and grace is what i want to emulate in my own playing.

Brad Wilk: the only drummer who can play the same beat an entire album and keep it fresh till the very end. He is the groove master.

I'll never forget RATM at lolapollooza last summer. CHICAGY!!!!
