Default Your favourite fill

This is my favourite. Tom Brechtlein during a triplet shuffle blues with a super tasty one bar fill at 2:19 that he plays as straight 1/16ths ending with an awesome flourish of double bass drum strokes with crashes. Superbly placed and executed.

Link a fill that you think is godlike, preferably starting 10 seconds before it so we get the flavour of the tune leading into the fill.

Hard to pick just one, unless a specific time/place in my life.

Classic rock - Deep Purple - Burn, right around 5:00. I think that one changed my life when I was 13. Never heard or seen anyone play with that intensity than Buddy Rich, or perhaps a couple others. Also the intro to "Stargazer" with the great Cozy Powell was influential around that time.

Later on maybe 15 years ago, i discovered Tony Williams "Fred" and this hand/foot roll down the toms, then a flam/blushda thing, with the hi-hat involved - that kicked my ass, took me a few weeks to get that one right.

So, so many to choose from, but for my answer, Im going to go with this little Benny ditty:

https://youtu.be/VUUdXh4HdSA

Fill is at 38 seconds. Starts off pretty straight forward and the next thing you know, he turns it back on itself, inverts the accents and completely f's with your mind. Then he just moves on like it was nothing..

BTW, Benny's Brass Band album is amazing from beginning to end. I have probably listened to it 50-60 times from start to finish in the last year... and I still cant figure out what he is doing most of the time. Just some amazing drumming and fun music to listen to.

Heh, like half the song is pretty much just one drum fill. The one at 5:00 isn't especially noteworthy compared to the gazillion other amazing drum fills in this song.

I freaking love Ian Paice, and this is his showcase, imo.

My personal favorite is nothing too fancy, but the fill in War Pigs that leads into the outtro. Right around 6:30 I think.

I don't know how to post the exact time of a video, but one of my favorites is Buddy Rich on the time out album in the song Joy Spring. It's better to listen to the whole song to get what's going on, but at 5:25 is the fill and what's cool is that the song has the same kind of shuffle as the song the op posted. It's a very musical on the spot fill.

We disagree...I always thought in that fill, Ian was in synch with Coverdales vocal line. I always think like that...when the drummer speaks much like the vocalist in their playing, esp. in a fill. That was also the hardest for me to play at the time, out of any of them. Good stuff though.

Always been In The Light by Zep. The fill Bonham plays to bring in the outro is perfect to me.

No fast, not flashy but perfect for the song.

Unfortunately can't get to hear the Benny Greb Icestattin or Buddy Rich Joy Spring, says unavailable. I did get a rough idea of the Greb fill from a drum cover.

That's great. An amazing 4 bar fill. I never really listened to Rainbow before even though I grew up during that era. That drum sound is huge, very Bonham like. The only Cozy Powell thing I ever knew was his hit record Dance with the Devil, a kind of rock samba mostly on the toms. Thinking about it now, it was like the 1970s answer to Surfari's Wipeout.

Seafroggys, that's a very cool fill in war pigs.

I like that. A huge one bar fill into a crash on the + of 1 of the next bar.

My favorite things have nothing to do with fills and rolls.

I go for the nuanced stuff that goes right by a lot of times.

Bobby Colomby's 1 measure fill in BST's "Spinning Wheel."

So few notes that say so much.

https://youtu.be/SFEewD4EVwU?t=1m26s


Also, a bit more common but always effective for a quick fill on beats 3 &4:
"Pat Boone, Debbie Boone" played on snare and rack tom.

Three stick out for me.

(1) Bonham at the last turnaround after the solo in "Trampled Under Foot" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftknR1gf9qw, starts at 3:05)

(2) Peart's triplet fill in the break in "Natural Science" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7W0Nm8iHwk, starts at 3:52)

(3) Gavin's backward fill into the last chorus during the live version of "Anesthetize" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBfY86cktN0, starts at 11:30)

I am a big fan of the simple 6 stroke roll. I can cascade down the toms with it, crescendo on the snare or jump between the hats and snare. very simple but it sounds fun.

The fill is just three quarter notes by Bill Bruford in the studio version of Sample and Hold. Here's a link set up at the exact moment ...

It's not what you do but the way that you do it :)

Yep Flaflaflafla, nice. Can't go wrong with AWB.

There's a sweet roll at 1:44 on this Chaka Khan version of A Night In Tunisia. A great drummer called Casey Scheurell.

Height of simplicity...and effectiveness-

Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild", Jerry Edmonton's drum break at 2:05...

Saw Easy Rider around 6-7 years old that tune just looms large in my psyche!

I'm pretty sure that's one of his most well-known licks. B lrrll b Rllrrll, with the left hand ghosts on the snare and rr on the hats, then coming back with the right on the snare

I saw Matt Garska use it fairly recently.

It's a good one to reverse, too. I've never seen anyone else shed it backwards, so I worked it up to speed a few years ago. you play open handed, left hand hi-hat - with the right hand going up and down the toms, or to the snare, ride bell, or whatever. Much more interesting and versatile that way.

Yeah, I play that Gadd lick as r/b together followed by llrrllbR, (r/bllrrllbR) much the same as you described it Brian, ending with right hand for the last snare stroke. All linear except the hihat and kick together at the start. It has to be very controlled, even strokes and have the right dynamics in the ghost notes to achieve the same effect that Gadd gets.

Yeah, you have it. I should have played the lick first before attempting to type it out. :D
