But I know them. So I better not say.
I know that feeling - I know a fewdrummers who would be better off leaving the stcks behind!

like, really really badly.

real hard. but you probably owuld anyway

although that isn't the point of the thread.
but she works well in the same way as mo tucker did for the velvets, but with shit songs.

For me, the shittest drummer is.....
he is shite!
this man is one of the richest in the world, something he has achieved by doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for 20+ years. Can you think of a single rhythmically interesting U2 song? Can you? Can you arse nuggets.
cos the producer will go to every pains to make sure the drumming is acceptable before you hear it. and, frankly, if the drumming is actually bad, the record almost certainly will never reach the listening public at large.
i think that this is different from other instruments because its much less subjective. there are more universal definitions of what is good and bad drumming.
so the worst drummers are all on the toilet circuit and are utterly forgettable. meg white is the most famous example of an almost shit drummer, but she does get away with it, cos it just works.
jack plays drums on all the records?
dont they play semi live in the studio? fact is, if she really couldnt play, they wouldnt be where they are today, with such a good live reputation.
