    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band, Drummer) can play funk, jazz, or rock.

    Re: Who's the best drummer?

    Wiki's noted on Carey:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Carey


    Carey's popularity among drummers and non-drummers stems from the diversity of his sound and dynamics, his technical ability, frequent use of odd time signatures, polyrhythms and polymeters. He has stated in interviews that he effectively treats his feet as he does his hands: he practices rudiments (used for sticking techniques) and even snare drum solos with his feet to improve his double bass drumming, hi-hat control and foot independence.
    In search of new techniques, Carey has studied tabla with Aloke Dutta, who can be heard playing on the live version of the song Pushit (from Salival). This is especially apparent on tracks such as "Disposition" (Lateralus) or "Intension" (10,000 Days), for which Carey has recorded the tabla parts himself in studio. The tablas (and other percussive instruments) used in Tool's music are replicated live using the Mandala pads (in fact the pads are also used when recording in the studio, a notable example being the tabla solo of "Right in Two" from 10,000 Days).
    He has also stated that when he is playing to an odd time signature, he tries to drum to the "feel" of the song and establish general "inner pulse" for the given time signature instead of fully counting it out.

    For me, it's between Bonham and Moon. I'll take Bonham on preference alone.

    Yes. He is amazing. But for now I'm going with Bonham.

    A couple of the shows I went to Grohl played drums for a few songs. I think on the Colour and Shape tour, He opened the show in his drum set which was set up next to his current drummer in his own drum set and they both went at it next to each other for about 5 minutes. Pretty Cool.

    I also vote none of the above. Carter Beauford from DMB rocks all.

    Bird's nest view of Carey playing 46&2. I always wondered when he played that weird "honky" electronic drum.

    Re: Who's the best drummer?

    I shouldn't be taking part in this discussion...but oh well.


    Q. None of the above.

    Dave Weckl
    Carter Beauford
    Buddy Rich
    Gene Krupa
    Ed Soph
    Art Blakey


    But if you make me pick one of those...it would be Peart, no contest.
