Who Is Your Favorite Drummer/ Most Technical...

Recommended Posts

Who is your favorite drummer? Who do you believe is the most technical? Who do you consider a very good "meat & potato's" drummer?

Most intense?

List the genre,it may or may not matter!

1. Neil Peart / Rush ,Rock

2. Randy Castillo, Ozzy Osbourne, Rock

3. The most intense award, for me has to probably go to Keith Moon of the Who...

Those are my choices, who are yours?

Neil Pert

A conversation about drummers would be incomplete without John Bonham being mentioned.

I wondered how long it would be, before Buddy's name came up! No doubt...

One of the all time greatest drummers is Terry Bozio! He was Frank Zappa's drummer and Missing Persons. The man does things on drums that seem almost inhuman!

Absolutely Terry MUST be in the circle of elites!!

 

Freakishly good drummer. Amazing. Loved his work with Jeff Beck.

The most talented drummer I've ever seen was Buddy Rich.

Having played the drums myself, his rolls & triplet riffs would give me goosebumps.

Another super drummer is Charlie Watts (rolling stones).

When speaking of drummers, I can't leave out Gene Krupa (seen him live at the Metropole).

 

In the early 60s, I watched steel drums from Jamaica make their debut in Greenwich Village, NY.

A drummer named Victor Brady performed at the Cafe Wha on MacDougal St,

along with Jay and the Americans. It was his act in fact that goaded me into drumming.

Victor was a loud, dynamic drummer, far from the best I've seen, but very inspiring.

He had a coffee can filled with drumsticks mounted on the rim of one of his steel drums.

When a drumstick splintered (exploded) Victor would grab another stick without hardly losing a beat.

So many musicians past and present and different genres. Very difficult to answer.

Right now here are a few of my favorites. I think they are all deceased.

Guitar - Hargrett from Blackfoot

Drums - Mick Tucker from Sweet

Bass - John Entwistle from The Who.

Guitar - Hargrett from Blackfoot

 

 

I can not believe anyone would name old Charlie Hargrett! I love the old guy! And he lives right here in north central Florida still!

 

And he ain't dead yet! I see him all the time around Florida and worked many shows with him. He is such a nice guy and a great old time guitarist with a monster sound! He is the man who made all those old BLACKFOOT songs great along with Jakson Spires on drums. Jakson died a few years ago from a brain aneurysm. Just keeled over instantly dead from it. He never knew what hit him fortunately.

 

Here are some recent photos I took of Charlie Hargrett performing here in central Florida just a few months ago not 5 minutes down the road from me. Back in his BLACKFOOT days with the way he would bounce around on stage I nicknamed him the Rubberband man!

Great to hear that he is still with us and still performing. He is one of the all time great players. I saw Blackfoot in 1983 at the West Palm Beach dirt track infield.

A little sample..
