apart from Chris Corsano, who I assume is part of Corsano/Flowers duo , I don't know who these people are...
has worked with current 93, bonnie prince billy and lots of others. young, british and amazing.
greg is in deerhoof, and he's fucking amazing.
gene hoglan is in strapping young lad, has played with death, dark angel, testament
lombardo = SLAYER!!! and fantomas
i thought lombardo sounded familiar.
neilsen, corsano and saunier..they are 3 beautiful drummers right there
TV On The Radio drummer is seriously underrated, and also Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta) http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y0aOYXEfl4
I'm not going to do guitarists/bassists/pianists/piccolo players. It's all about vocals and drums for me;
1) John Stanier (Battles)
2) David Narcizo (Throwing Muses)
3) Pete DeFrietas (Echo & the Bunnymen)
4) Bloke from The Secret Machines
5) Bloke who played drums on the last Caribou tour
Getting desperate at the end? Not really- they were amazing when I saw them, I just don't know what their names are. I even spoke to the drummer of The Secret Machines after the gig (at the Jug of Ale in Brum) and told him how ace he was. I don't do that kind of thing. Anyone ever see John Bonham or Keith Moon?
Utterly amazing drummer.
Jason Finn - The Presidents of the USA
Brendan Canty - Fugazi
Jimmy Chamberlin - Smashing Pumpkins
There, have three.
He was good, but the band sucked so hard that it just wasn't enjoyable.
....be a little shite live now, but Chamberlain is pretty friggin good to watch when he drums. Massive big long complex drum solos and he A. Never seems to even break into a sweat and B. His upper body doesn't seem to move. Didn't he train as a jazz musician or something?
he's the best rock drummer alive today i reckons...
"Brendan Canty looks like he could be a little mentally retarded."
Chris Corsano - With Mick Flower, as well as helping out Comets on Fire. Literally amazing.
Joey Castillo - Queens of the Stone Age. Muscular, innit.
John Stanier - Battles. Sweaty bastard.
Thomas Pridgen - The Mars Volta. Basically the best thing about their rather so/so show last year.
Todd Trainer - Shellac
If we're talking sheer enjoyment, the guy from Monotonix, and the Pissed Jeans guy.
I'm also seeing Zach Hill and Dale Crover next month. Shiiiit.
I forgot him on my list. He's better than Trainer.
I really wanna see Dave Lombardo do his thang.
and the song, of course.
Oneida were awesome at ATP, my jaw kept dropping as they went on, sheets of Easter was unbelievably good.
Absolutely hypnotic, and most of it is due to him.
kevin shea! stunning
head and shoulders above all drummrs I have seen. He can play hard as hell and soft too. From deranged metal style to ambiend jazz.
He is in many bands...
also polar bear play this saturday in the amersham arms
Zach Hill (w/Marnie Stern)
the drummer from gowns -this really was great. So drained after the whole thing though
whoever it was from Sunburned Hand of the Man (I assume it was the drummer) who played in Six Organs of Admittance at 93 Feet East last time
Him from Shellac
Him from Battles
Him from Tortoise
Him from Fugazi
Him from Arctic Monkeys. Yes, really.
the guy in Arctic Monkeys is one of the best drummers I've seen.
Also, Matt Cameron.
john butler trio
mars volta - jon theodore
seeing zach hill soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
matt from bloc party (bloody nice bloke aswell)
radiohead drummer (can member his name)
guy from the black keys
bloke from the strokes
though he is the weaker link in radiohead (not that that says much)
DAN OR WHATEVER FROM SIKTH
Bilge pump drummer - Neil
Charlottefield - Ash
Hella- Zach Hill
Lightning Bolt - Brian
Don Cab - Damon Che
That's 6 ooops
danny carey man
Brian - Lightning Bolt
Bloke from Battles - Battles
Mark Heron - Kong/Oceansize
Chris Bussey - LIMA/ Michael Bolton
and the geezer who used to play drums for Type O Negative then moved to Life of Agony.
Both technically excellent but I love the way Mike Bordin used to smash the shit out of his kit with real power and still maintain time.
Yeah also agree with Joey Castillo from QOTSA.
Oh and Jimmy Chamberlaine from Pumpkins. Love his sound both liv and on record.
Anyone else think Dave Grohl is good too? I love his drumming style. Prefer it to Castillo's for Queens of the Stone Age.
Also Converge's drummer, and the dude from Interpol, who's name escapes me right now.
Joey Waronker is a good drummer too, very good at adapting to whatever band he plays with. Plus he did some drumming on XO, so he rules.
Mastodon drummer, is that Brann Dailor?
his arms move like hummingbird wings, so fast they became invisible
TVOTR's Jaleel Bunton happens to be a good friend of a friend of mine (coincidentally) and please look for cool interview we did with him for www.thelineofbestfit.com coming soon.
My first JAG! awesome
Caribou drummer, Pete DeFritas from Bunnymen, Sea and Cake drummer all amazing.
But the guy out of Quack Quack is fucking brilliant.
Also I was quite mesmerised by that girl in Victorian English Gentleman's Club.
And probably some others but I can't think of them now. I don't know any famous ones, sorry. I am not cool
Guy from Trencher
playing bass-drum to bass-drum.
Thomas Lang (Technically amazing nerdlinger)
Tom Vek's drummer
is a cave in....yes...hits slower and harder than all others.
seriously, i'm not just saying this. He's quite old now but he's toured with Billy Idol back when he was mega famous in the 80s, he auditioned for AC/DC and was in the band until they realized he was from New York (they wanted someone from Australia or the UK) and was going to play in Gang of Four in the 80s but they got someone in who was their drum tech after the original drummer left. You'd think he'd kind of be stuck in his ways being a fair bit older but not at all, he's still pushing himself and is really inventive with his playing.
I've seen videos of his band he played in New York back in the early 80s. They were brilliant, a 3 piece like Talking Heads, if anything more angular and odd. Just as they signed a record deal the singer/guitarist went insane and moved to California. He teaches music conduction at the big university there now.
Other than that the HEALTH drummer is great
Battles drummer is great
These New Puritans drummer should get more love too, fantastic drummer.
and though i haven't seen him play live, i've seen lots of videos of the drummer from the french band Magma. Perhaps the best drummer ever.
My posts go on a bit don't they?
I dont tend to notice technical ability as a non-musician but even I noted how good he was.
Nothing else stands up to him really.
Is he doing anything post-charlottefield?
I'll dig out the myspacesss
Well this isn't new...
And It doesn't seem like there are myspaces for the other stuff. Move to brighton, go the freebutt everynight. You'll soon find out.
AWESOME COLOR.......flippin brilliant
Paul Ferguson - Killing Joke
guy from Mew
guy from Vessels
guy from Bloc Party
guy playing drums for John Vanderslice
guy from EiTS
not many girl drummers are there?
but now is basic and bloc party are now horribly poor.
He was good first album, now he's shite.
but one for sure has to be Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney
I can't believe no-one has said Glenn Kotche from Wilco. He's AMAZING...plays subtle, but interesting beats and sometimes melodic percussion at the same time. All the while looking as though it's the easiest thing in the world.
Jimmy Camberlin - Pumpkins
Damon Che - Don Cab
Tomas Hakke - Meshuggah
Cissi - Those Dancing Days
Joe Easely - The Dismemberment Plan
Danny Carey (Tool)
Brann Dailor (Mastodon)
Greg Saunier (Deerhoof)
can't think of anymore
Georgia Hubley (Yo La Tengo)
John McEntire (Tortoise/The Sea & Cake/Gastr Del Sol)
Janet Weiss (Sleater Kinney/Quasi/Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks)
Jim White (Dirty Three/Nina Nastasia/Tren Brothers/Cat Power/Smog/PJ Harvey)
Kevin Shea (Barr/Puttin' On the Ritz/Get The People/Storm and Stress/Talibam!)
I know nothing about stadium rock bands and their drummers
...is amazing. and i'm a drummer so i know about this.
Gabe Serbian (The Locust)
Mario Rubalcaba (Hot Snakes)
Paul Phillips (Meet Me In St. Louis)
Gellend Adler (Arnocorps)
Ben Standage (Down I Go)
also Soundgarden (Matt Cameron)
honorable mentions to Sky Larkin and Shield Your Eyes
pity those bar-stewards wont tour over here, Herb is a fantastic drummer
Last show i saw them at, someone bet him £20 he couldn't play the whole set with a full backpack on. And he did. And never missed a beat.
Andy Knowles (former Fiery Furnaces now Franz Ferdinand I think)
Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls)
Jon Theodore (formerly of The Mars Volta)
Jeremy Barnes (A Hawk and a Hacksaw when he used to do the strap on stick thing. Neutral Milk also but I didn't see them.)
Kurt Dahle (New Pornographers)
Matt Cameron (Soundgarden)
Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees)
Paul Bostaph (Slayer)
though Primus probably automatically win every category of this type of thread.
Laurence Pike (Pivot)
John Stanier (Battles)
Jan Christian L. Kyvik (Noxagt)
Ash from Charlottefield
the best ones i've seen, but anyway:
Guy from HEALTH
Guy from Parts and Labor
Ummm...that's all I can think of.
Tony Allen by a country mile - amazing control, subtlety, expression. Mind blowing.
Damo Waters - Dead Singer, Electric Soft Parade etc
Jim Sclavunos - Bad Seeds, Sonic Youth, The Cramps etc
ummm that'll do.
damon che - don cab
zach hill - hella etc
todd trainer - shellac
dude from russian circles (best new drummer ive heard in a while)
dude from ruins
doug scharin - codeine...
My Bloody Valentine
I can't think of any others that really stand out.
the loudest drums were mogwai's. the bass drum blew the cobwebs out of my head with every thump.
Also new mars volta drummer
65daysofstatic drummer...tight as anything and plays some amazing fills
william bowerman from iwacs/brontide, equally as good as...
matt tong bloc party..yeah they're poor now but seeing him live on silent alarm tour was a real treat
interpol drummer also knows how to hit hard and tight.
i guess they're not the most technical of drummers, but all great i think.
He is incredibly watchable, unlike most.
Dillinger guy (old or new, same difference)
Big Business guy
matt tong and andy burrows are really the only ones which stand out for me. the rest is a big blob bass drum.
they kinda keep rhythm and make extra noise where needed....
I saw the Secret Machines (support for a Mercury Rev tour I think) and I thought "Fucking hell" THAT is a drummer....
So him !
Calf By Calf
max roach- miles davis, charlie parker, charles mingus etc
?uestlove- the roots
john convertino- calexico
erik bodin- little dragon
the soulwax one
But I highly rate David Silvera - he is a groove machine.
Chris Adler from Lamb of God is a solid beater
coming from a drummer
tomorrow, 5 best guitarists you've ever seen..... etc etc ad nauseum
saw them recently and he was excellent. I don't know his name and can't be bothered looking at the sleeve notes or googling
but I'd have to say Janet Weiss again. She is awesome.
It is a real geeky thread intit.
Chris Corsano and Mick Flowers were amazing when I saw them. One of the few times when something that has real potential to be a bit wank is actually amazing
No joke, it's fucking brilliant. If you're at all interested in drumming/drummers you should watch.
i was blown away by him live.
ash from charlottefield and glenn kotche are fantastic too.
Todd Trainer (Shellac)
John Convertino (Calexico)
George Hurley (Minutemen)
Micheal Lee (Little Angels & Plant/Page)
Matt Tong (Bloc Party)
...is still the best drummer I’ve seen live, even after seeing TV on the radio, The Mars Volta and Queens of the Stone Age. This guy is amazing
Janet from Sleater Kinney
Scott from The National
John from Battles
Brian from Yeah Yeah Yeahs
and someone else. Possibly from Lightning Bolt. Or DFA1979.
finally another shout for David Narcizo! Can't wait to see him again at the Breeders ATP. Stephen Morris is a good call too. About time this thread died, can someone total up the results please, I can't be arsed. Must be Stanier surely?
except Alfredo Hernadez......oooooft.
Alan "Reni" Wren, Stone Roses.
God sent him!
although a bit of asshole, is an amzing drummer when i saw him at hakoben.
Actually jaw dropping stuff.
Modest Mouse had two drummers when I saw them. It was similarly ace.
Will have to think about another three.
The guy from Deerhoof
The guy from Secret Machines
Ben from Cats In Paris
The guy from Dirty Three
I saw Chris Corsano drum with someone. Can't remember who. But he didn't do anything cool.
Can't believe he hasn't be mentioned already
+ Chris Corsano + Alex Neilson
