A couple other drummers that I think deserve a mention, but are sadly overlooked all the time are -

Dennis Elliot of Foreigner. He played some great drums on the first three albums. Really good rock drummer.

Myron Grombacher from Pat Benatar. If you can look past his antics behind the kit, he's a pleasure to listen to. I still think the snare sound in 'Heartbreaker' might be the greatest snare in a popular rock song.

Paul Delong from Kim Mitchell. Great drummer that flies under the radar for the most part.

i agree todd,i think for the most part it's a 'drummer thing' to show other players respect,and to appreciate their playing.you don't get it a lot from guitarists,that's for sure.some of the players you mentioned in your second post i haven't even heard of,but i am familiar with the playing of the feller from foreigner,and he has some lovely chops going on.i know a couple of pat benatar songs,but paul delong is a new one on me.if i may throw a couple of names into the mix...............

Bobby Elliot....The Hollies.lovely player with a great jazz touch,still doing the business today.

Mick Tucker....The Sweet.what a great pop/rock player,amazing chops and very overlooked....R.I.P Mick

another guy who never gets the recognition is Roger Taylor from Queen.big big playing from a small bloke.

my last mention is for Chris Sharrock...The La's,Lightning Seeds,Robbie Williams,Oasis,Beady Eye.very moon like antics,but the playing is very much there.excellent.


so,the man at the back.the guy everyone turns their back on.the guy who steers the ship,night after night.if he gets it right,no-one remembers.if he gets it wrong,no-one forgets.

Yes and yes. Totally agree with those two.

Isnt that the truth. When we mess up, its right there for all the world to hear. Other instruments can hide most of the times.

Sigtryggur Baldursson, who was the drummer in The Sugarcubes is probably my favourite drummer.

when we mess up the whole song gets messed up.any other instrument messes up,then things carry on as if nothing has happened.you build anything on solid foundations...poor drummer,poor band.it is THE one instrument you cannot fake or carry in your band.

I like all drummers. Seriously, there isnt one I dislike.


This sounds funny coming from you Todd, especially since we have seen how you can be critical.  ;D

Hey, i'll be the first to agree with you. Maybe because I can relate. I'm the worship drummer in my church. We practice the seven songs a half hour before service starts and the worship leader is guarenteed to change the songs up at least three times before we start. I try to tell them we need to run through those changes, but they just blow me off and say that it'll be fine and nobody will notice. I tell them that if the song breaks down, i'm the one that looks like a fool. In the year and half i've been doing it, we havent had a train wreck yet (knock on wood), but they dont understand.

If the guitar playesrs screw up, its covered by the other guitars, organ, piano, etc,,,. When I screw up its right there for everyone to see. plus it throughs the bass player off. I dont know, its a difficult instrumet to play and a lot of people dont realize it.

Clem Burke has always been one of my favorite drummers. I got to meet him a few years ago (with the rest of Blondie) and he's a super cool guy.
