What do you guys think about bands with two drummers? I not a big fan of it personally, If there are two drummers I really would expect something mind blowing,
THis is more what I would expect out of two drummers, some creativity.He set up lefty and I righty. We would set up with his kit next to mine on my left.
We would do things like share each others Hats. Sync our fills so that I played half of the fill and he played the other half.
We would both play the exact same fill sometimes.
The lefty/righty thing allowed us to roll down the toms in opposite directions.
One of us could be on the hats while the other was on the ride.
We really put on a pretty good show.
The audience loved it.
LOL! I had to literally write with a white marker on my cowbell, "This is not a toy"because everybody and their dog thinks they can hold a rhythmI don't even like it when the lead singer picks up a cowbell. Their timing is usually not too developed and they end up rushing..
Yes, you would, & That's because you're a drummer. 99.999% of audiences are not drummers. Visual impact aside, two drummers can add huge presence to the right kind of stuff, even if they're playing exactly the same thing. Try telling any rock fan that the collaboration between Rush & Max Webster produced a pointless result. Here's Kim Mitchell putting down the vibe with three drummers!If there are two drummers I really would expect something mind blowing,
I just spent some time with a, er,....how do I say this without losing my cool exterior?....Ah, a high school show choir, and the director had this crazy idea of having two drummers, and me being the money-whore I am, said 'yes'.What do you guys think about bands with two drummers?

to have 2 drummers they MUST learn how to play off each other. Its a gift when it works well.I have seen the Allman Brothers band a few times and those guys are so in sync and play so well off each other it was hard for me to absorb,......
