Young jazz drummers like listing people they played with in a school master class once.What's uncool is someone listing an artist who they might have opened for, even though they didn't actually work for that artist. They expect the reader to infer that they were hired by the artist, and that's a feather in their cap, bogus as it is.
He lists it in his discography, it's not worded that he's the only drummer on that record so he's not saying anything wrong.I was looking at Aaron Sterling’s website
he lists himself as the drummer for RED (Taylor Swift)
On Wikipedia there are like 10 drummers listed
why so many drummers and what gives any one individual the right to list the artist as a reference? Just curious
..and what gives any one individual the right to list the artist as a reference?..
Live drums over a track, or mixing live drum parts with other parts from a track, yes.Say, Bermuda, are you aware of it still being a thing to have different people overdubbing toms, hihats, whatever, over somebody else's basic track? Or a programmed track? So you'd have four guys playing on the same Peter Gabriel tune or whatever.
Semantics play a role here. If the drummer has ethics, they will say "I have played with..." or if it's a current relationship,"I am the drummer with..."Who gets to lay claim to being the artists drummer?
I would think the one with most credibility would be the one who’s credited on the record. I’ve met cool drummers who also included the phrase “I’m touring with - “ when asked who they are. I think it’s cool when they make the distinction that they weren’t on the record and aren’t trying to be more than they are. Then we can have a coffee togetherWhat about this:
Drummer A records the whole album but does not tour.
Drummers B, C, and D all tour on different legs, but are just hired hands.
Who gets to lay claim to being the artists drummer? All of them?
That's still common with Nashville artists, where there are studio musicians, and touring players. But in the old days, it was much more prevelant with young bands whose drummers in particular weren't experienced enough to make radio-ready recordings. Hal Blaine did a lot of those recordings, often credited however, whiole the band's own drummer then recreated those parts on the road.What about a drummer who toured with, but wasn't on any albums?
