Glenn Kotche

Hey Guys.
Happy new year to all of you! I thought it was about time to do a thread on Glenn Kotche who, in my opinion, is the greatest rock drummer today. Wilco is probably my favourite band and I am psyched to see them live next month. I think they are the perfect constellation of musicians and Jeff Tweedy's lyrics and songwriting blows my mind every time I listen to them. However, what I really like about Glenn Kotches approach to the songs is that he is not so much playing beats as he is playing compositions. Anyway, I just needed to praise him a bit on this wonderful forum of drummers :)

It is about time he had a thread.

A very inventive drummer. So inspiring to watch him play.

I too love Wilco. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a masterpiece - due in part to Glenn's playing. Lots of creativity. When I saw them live last summer, it struck me the degree to which Kotche commanded the flow and energy of the music. They're great live. You won't be disappointed.
