Wow, unless I overlooked something, I'm surprised no one mentioned Bernard Purdie and Chuck Rainey. They really hook up on that Aretha Franklin album "Live At The Filmore West" I mention these guys because although a lot of guys have recomended some great Jazz guys which I love, but you said you were checking out Flea and Chad so in that vein but more Funk/R and B and less Rock, these guys on that record are the shit.. Ray Charles is also on that recording plus King Kurtis.. They cover "Love The One Your With" and there is this Break that Purdie does that is soooo bad ass and then Rainey kicks it in and it's ridiculous..Hope you check it out and like it..

Not that I'm opinionated, BUT... NO NO NO... ya'll got it way wrong! Garabaldi/Rocko without comparison. TOP
MAN, I gotta agree man, they got that THANG goin' on there.

The Porcaro Brothers from Toto were monsters!! Mike Porcaro, is Toto's bass player and the late great Jeff Porcaro was the drummer. Even another Porcaro brother, Steve plays keyboards . . . ALL of them MONSTERS on their respective instruments.

RIP Jeff!!

Wow,


Matty. Good one there!

I believe you are the 1st.

Maybe we should all have these cats on our lists, huh? ;-)

Certainly not saying any "best evers" or even really personal favorites, but Ahmir Thompson and Leonard Hubbard of The Roots have some really tight moments.

I tend to agree. For the first time, another DW colleague (You, in this case) says that likes Les Binks, He did an outstanding drum-work on Stained Class and Hell Bent For Leather, albums. Songs such as: Rock Forever, Green Manalishi With The Two Pronged Crown, Saints In Hell, White Heat/Red Hot, Heroes End, Beyond The Realms Of Death, Better By You Better Than Me.

Regarding, Clive Burr I love his drumming on Killers and The Number Of The Beast: Wrathchild, Murders In The Rue Morgue, Genghis Khan, Invader, The Prisoner, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Gangland, Run To The Hills...

By the way, Thanks a lot! I got inspired, due to you...

Ya think? LOL. Yea, good call. I am not a 'passionate' Dream Theater fan (a little too key-boardy at times for me), but those boys can sure play. Portnoy is a beast.
