Default 10 essential drum albums....

.... according to Mike Portnoy ... so take it for what it is

but this should create a nice discussion with all the Starkey lovers and haters around here.

"there wouldn't be drums as we know them if Ringo Star hadn't done it first ."

I agree with a couple

I do too. It reads more like a favorites list to me than an essentials list though.

^ This.

I agree with one album.

I agree with many of the bands, though not necessarily the album chosen.

Glen Sobel also makes his 10 picks here: http://www.musicradar.com/news/drums...-albums-561657

It's understandable-- that list makes sense for a modern rock player. I'm glad he included Ringo-- maybe some of the chops guys who are into Portnoy try to take him a little more seriously for that.

Sobel's list is funny-- I didn't know anyone else in the world had that Brandon Fields record.

I agree with most of the list's bands. Not necessarily the albums. Portnoy's favorites are that - a favorites list. No Jazz? No Stones? No Pink Floyd? No Van Halen? No Green Day? No DMB? For me, any/every musician could come up with 10 favorite/influential albums in a minute or two. His, are a good start.

If its not favorites list, its definitely a narrow selection.. genre and era.

Sobels list was cool. I'll be checking out some of the records on that. I like his taste in drumming. Gavins one listed Secrets (Allan Holdsworth), as did Sobel, so that's clearly a drumming gem worth checking out.

Cobham didn't list any records released after the 60's, lol. All old jazz stuff.

By the way, these articles are all listed on the music radar website. They originally appear in Rhythm magazine months before they go on the website.

My personal favourite was Stewart Copelands list of top 10 albums. Man oh man so diverse, and he even included Joey Jordison of Slipknot in his top 10. I'm not into Mr Jordison to be honest, but for someone as tasteful as Copeland to approve, its hard not to give Joey that extra bit of respect.

Man lots of great albums listed.. tweeked a few memories;

- Brandon Fields!! Saw him play with Dave Weckl on a drum tour. Outstanding band!
- Mahavishnu Orchestra, Birds of Fire.. I remember excitedly getting my hands on that record in Grade 9 from the 'big city' on a trip. When I got home I discovered the record was warped.. and 2 days later when I wasn't looking - my dog ate the cover! Billy rocked the Kazbah on that one.. but I was a big Dreams fan before that. Anyone remember those guys??? A bunch of unknown NYC jazz cats turned rockers featuring guys like Randy/Michael Brecker on horns, Will Lee on bass and Billy on the skins. They put out 2 fantastic albums Dream Suite and Calico .. after losing one of the vinyls, I searched for 20 years in vain until I discovered someone re-issued them on CD. I now keep the CDs in a vault surrounded by armed guards.

- TOP Oakland the best?? I dunno I'd pick the TOP album with 'What is Hip' on it - my all time fav! (I've got em all hehe!)

- Romantic Warrior.. a lot of people pick that one.. but my all time fav of RTF is Where Have I Known you Before? Chic's first big splash was a real eye opener for a lot of people.. and those buggers - Stanley, Lenny, et Al made it look so easy! Like how the heck could they play like that and smile the whole time like they were picking daisies??

Great lists by both Sobel and Portnoy!

I love me some Cobham and Jon Hiseman (Colosseum) drumming. Birds of Fire made my asplode when I first heard it.

I cant really think of 10 right away, but 2 that jump to me are Led Zeppelin IV (if you can hold down when the levee breaks with good grove you can go far, and the rest is great practice). And jazz at the philharmoncs, the drum battle, buddy rich vs gene krupa.
