"How to become a Drummerworld Drummer? You know that gets me pondering. I tend to be lazy but once motivated I go the other extreme and go full out. I've always enjoyed drumming but never really took it seriously-till more recent times. Makes me think if I was a young fella being on the DW list would be a worthy dream or goal to work towards-and with study, effort, and time it is clear that the dream can turn into a goal with some progress made in that regard. How to become a DW drummer? You gotta work at it, study it, and never quit doing either. But I'm just now turning 65 so I got "at least" another 25 years or so (LOL I'm more of an optimist that I appear)-so maybe I should take my own advice and start working towards that end. I'll be the Grandpa Moses of Music LOL. I think I'll settle for being a forum member and leave the DW list to the pros.
I know criticisms often drown out the positives but I hope all the DW members really appreciate the DW site-the forum is most popular compared to others by Alexa, and in general DW rocks Alexa and has dominated all drum magazines, etc. and even out competes all lesson sites but Drumeo that only in recent times has been competitive. It's pretty much number one for drums with some minor caveats. It's a great resource independent of forum with all the bios and videos, and other sections, but the forum is a also super resource and not just a bunch of gabby people. It's a great place with a lot of great people making it happen-we should show some gratitude sometimes.

..Tony Allen!..
..Hell yeah..

Completely agree and to me is a mystery why he is not on the 'radar' from this place (also on the forum he is not mentioned a lot)..

I mean, afrobeat is not really a 'little' music genre (to say the least) and the guy is an icon..

Like..an ICON..

I guess thats just how is, a list like that will always create debate..

That goes for all lists basically..

I mean Allen has really covered it all from roots folksy music to pop to jazz. There exist videos of clinics he has given. I don't even know how many languages of singers he has backed but I have counted at least four.
Maybe he is wanting to be paid for using his name and links? IDK
Definately check y.t. for his clinics.
