    Nice! My mom used to see Gene Krupa live as kid, even got his autograph.
    She passed away several yrs. ago and I'm still trying to locate it.

    I did get Buddy Rich autograph myself yrs. ago though.:righton:
    And Ginger Baker another time.
    I collect...

    I've seen a lot (and I mean a lot) of drummers-rock. jazz, blues,funk you name it. Recently, I saw possibly the greatest exhibition of percussion ever-Billy Hart with the Cookers. I sat right next to his kit for 2 sets. A nice man and a young 71! Lots of good ones already mentioned but don't overlook the inventor of the double bass set up-Louis Bellson. There are many more-Tommy Ardolino, Rod Morganstern, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Roy Haynes, Butch Trucks, Jim Keltner.....many others Hal Blaine, Earl Palmer

    Also got one of the finest/influential soul funk drummers to sign a few Steely Dan records he played on.

    At one time in 1990, my band came close to a hair getting signed to Def American. Around the same time, we were almost GG Allin's backing band but he was arrested (thank God) before we played the show, I never heard of the guy before that. Now I play at church every Sunday, I wound't give up that gig for the world.

    Hi PC, here's a guy who has virtually gone unnoticed by most of the world mainly because he's another Canadian yet he's played with numerous high profile acts like Heart, The Powder Blues Band and Jerry Doucette. Meet Duris Maxwell and absolute rhythm keeper pillar of the rock community.

    Joe Morello. This is a great solo. It's musical as hell, but it's also got some technical brilliance. You can even dance to it. I think it was solos like these that made John Bonham a fan.

    I miss this man terribly. He was my teacher and also my friend. Joe was as good a human being as he was a musician.

    ahhh.... now you've touched on my other love, my other favorite instrument, the clarinet.... it's one of two instruments i own, and i can produce sound, but can't really play beyond the skill of a 6th grader :laugh: (although i'm kinda okay at freestyling)....however, my father used to play clarinet and sax in the US Army's band during WWII.... his father was classically-trained on clarinet and guitar.... absolutely close to my heart.... thank you so much for posting this, i'm enjoying it as i type :D

    Way to give the drummers some, guys!
     
  18. Great thread! Cool to see / hear so many forum members and their drumming talents. I have to give a special mention here for one of my favorite drummers ever - Danny Richmond. He was to Charles Mingus what Mitch Mitchell was to Hendrix. Here's a wild clip of Richmond in the studio with Mingus (and Eric Dolphy!) - complete with all the great tempo and stylistic changes Mingus demanded from the music - Danny Richmond was the king of this kind of playing!

    And here's some footage of me playing live in the studio with my band The Greyhounds. I still say the best thing about this video is the jukeboxes, but the band isn't too shabby either! Bright Moments!

    Danny Richmond, yes. And if you played for Mingus, you knew what was on.

    Guitarists are okay, until you finally date a keyboard player. I got one word for you: trilling. :love:

    His name is Dannie Richmond, not Danny, in case anyone is looking for his work as a leader. Danny Richmond is someone else.
